What you'll do

We will meet at the entrance to the Botanic Gardens, and then move to a seating area for introductions where I will get a bit of information about your experience level and goals for the day. We will than have a brief discussion of the kinds of photography we will be doing: flowers, art, landscapes, and people, and the different approaches to each, both compositionally and technically. We will take a look at some example photographs, and then we will start exploring the gardens, where my goal is to help you take fantastic photos. We will be walking a lot, so bring good shoes and keep your gear pack as light as possible. We will eat lunch in the Gardens at the café. At the end of our photographic exploration, we will gather for a coffee or tea, and take a look at our images for a round of constructive critique and suggestions for further exploring on your own. There will be a Facebook private group created after the shoot so we can stay in touch and share our images from the day.

Dan

Dan is an award-winning, Denver-based photographer working locally and globally, in commercial, assignment, editorial, fashion and stock photography, and teaches photo workshops at all levels, from beginner to expert. Born in Sri Lanka to Peace Corps parents, he found his passion for photography one foggy morning on a mountaintop in Bhutan, and has since lived in a number of countries and continues to explore the world, never happier than in some new place, eating food I have never had, surrounded by people whose language I don’t speak, trying to communicate with a smile and a camera.
