The Grand Prairie Photography Club – PhotoCram Weekend

This past weekend (Sept. 10 to Sept 12) Samantha and I led a PhotoCram Weekend Workshop with the Grand Prairie Photography Club in Grand Prairie, Alberta. What is PhotoCram?  Well, we like to think of it as an immersion in photography designed to boost your creative and technical skills.

Over the course of the weekend, we gave four one hour lectures; Camera Controls Made Easy, The Camera and the Creative Eye, Personal Style and Creative Vision and How to Make Money with Your Photography. As well, the participants were teamed up to do several photography assignments in the field designed to increase their understanding of both the technical aspects of the craft as well as the artistic side of creating images.

Sam and I did student image critiques at the start of the weekend and at the end of the assignment session. We were really pleased by the amount of improvement we saw over the course of the weekend, so much so, that we wanted to share the images turned in by the students for the assignments. So each day for the next several days Sam and I will alternate presenting 5 images on our blogs from the PhotoCram participants for your enjoyment. If any other camera club out there wants us to come by and give you a custom PhotoCram weekend just drop us an email! But be warned, you’ll have a tough time surpassing the hospitality, enthusiasm, and fun of the Grand Prairie Photo Club!

  1. Darwin and Sam,
    You two are sure class acts in the world of photography. Being so generous with advice and sharing your knowledge is simply incredible. Great stuff from the GP visit and sure gives me some ideas for the impending autumn in Pennsylvania.
