Davies Creative Workshops
Thank you so much for your interest in our workshops!
Our mission is to provide high-quality educational photography workshops that give students a place to learn new information and then try out what they are learning in a hands-on situation. We believe that this learn then try method results in better retention of what is learned and allows the individual to grow as a photographer.

About the Workshops:
We offer beginner, intermediate and advanced workshops that cover a wide range of topics from introductions to digital photography and basic lighting, to very focused concepts, such as dramatic portrait lighting and photography business start-up.
Our workshops will focus on helping you learn all about different aspects of photography in a practical and educational format. Our workshops will begin with a classroom style education where we will review lessons about the particular topic. We will then follow up with hands-on activities to put what you learned into practice. We will be a rather relaxed workshop that will encourage dialogue and idea exchange throughout the sessions. What you won’t find here is a free-for-all shootout where a lighting is set up and a model placed and everyone fires away.
