Since 2008 I've taught a series of night photography and light painting workshops in Mojave Desert junkyards with Troy Paiva. Featuring amazing locations and an excellent student-to-teacher ratio, our workshops are a superb way to take your night photography techniques to the next level. We've taught the magic of night shooting to over 100 photographers. Half of our attendees are alumni, who are hooked on photographing these unique locations with kindred spirits.
2014 Night Photography Workshops
We are working on a new location for 2014. We're also considering additional workshops at Eagle Field and Paul's Junkyard. The first Eagle Field workshop filled in 1 day from our email list. Please contact me to get on the list
Eagle Field Night Photography Workshop
November 15-17, 2013 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday)
This year we're offering a new workshop at Eagle Field, a historic World War II air training base in California's Central Valley. Now privately owned, Eagle Field has an unusual collection of cars, tanks, trucks, airplanes, helicopters, fire engines, and derelict buildings. Sounds like the perfect recipe for night photography!
The workshop includes 3 afternoons of classroom sessions, and 3 nights of shooting with hands-on instruction.

As your instructors, our intention is to shoot for demonstration purposes only. We'll spend our time helping you hone your night photography and light painting skills. The afternoon classroom sessions will include shooting and lighting techniques, constructive feedback, and post-processing tips.
The workshop is limited to 12 photographers.
Registration opens in early August, and tuition is $950.
