Patrick Fore Workshops hosts immersive, inspirational and informative photography workshops in San Diego.

Saturday June 8th | 9am | Spreckels Organ Pavilion in Balboa Park | $80

We cover basic photographic techniques, and immediately apply them through practical exercises. We discuss the decisions one must make while shooting. At the end of this course, you’ll be in control of your camera in manual mode and no longer depend on your camera to determine the exposure and focus for you. You can begin to create the images that you’ve been wanting to. You’ll stop “taking” photos, because now you’ll have all the tools to “make” a photo.
