Dates and Fees
The Creative Control Workshop is scheduled as a two day (same weekend)
every three months. A minimum number of six (6) participants is
required to conduct
a workshop with maximum number accepted being ten (10). Although the
Creative Control Workshop is designed for two days (same weekend) we
offer a one day (Saturday) workshop that covers one-half of the
material. A deposit is required 30 days prior to the workshop with the
balance of the course fee paid at the beginning of the workshop.
If a particular workshop is cancelled due to lack of minimum enrollment
requirements any funds already paid will be cheerfully refunded or you
may choose to use the funds to hold your space for next scheduled
workshop. The choice is yours. Be sure to email us for space
addition to your 35mm SLR film/digital camera (4MP or greater) we recommend the following equipment:
flash/memory cards, steady tri-pod,
remote cable release, dedicated flash, extra set of fully charged
batteries, lens cloth, any filters that you own, and a bag for your gear. It is not necessary to go out and purchase a full array of lens or filters
for the workshop. The lens that you own will work fine. Be sure to wear clothing
appropriate for the season, comfortable shoes for the field outings and
since some Mississippians are convinced that the state bird should be the
Mississippi mosquito you may want to carry along some insect protection.
And for those of you that eat more than once a day a snack sack is
recommended. If you
have been considering new camera equipment purchases feel free to
send us an email with your questions.
We will provide: 1 roll of professional grade 35 mm film per day for those of
you using film cameras, box lunch, drinks, bottled water, and all
workshop materials. For those of you shooting digital we will have
a lap top in the field for image review and instant feedback.
