Workshops at Chanticleer

Rob Cardillo - October 17-19, 2014 - SOLD OUT

Vision, Craft and the Desire to Grow – a master class in garden photography.
October 17-19th, 5pm on Friday and 5:45am – 5:00 pm on Sat/Sun
$400 price includes breakfast and lunch on Saturday & Sunday

Photography these days requires little more than a camera phone. And millions of reasonably good frames are produced every minute flooding our in-boxes and social media sites. But truly transcendent images are created only when impeccable technique is coupled with a fully engaged body, mind and soul.

This workshop will provide you with a new set of tools, techniques and thoughts to help you better translate your own personal vision of Eden. Come take a breath, scrape away the clichés and dig deep with your eyes within one of America's finest gardens.

An evening reception on Friday at 5pm, will set the tone for the workshop and then the two day garden photography immersion will commence. We'll have two mornings by ourselves in the rich tapestry of the fall borders at Chanticleer plus plenty of time for classroom discussion and group critiques. Breakfast and lunch will be provided on both Saturday and Sunday.

The workshop is open to all but you must be able to operate your camera on your own. A simple portfolio review is required, please email a sample of ten jpegs of your choice to Rob Cardillo. You also may forward a link to a website, Flickr gallery, Instagram site, etc. where your work is posted. Also, bringing a laptop to download and edit your work will allow you to better participate in the group critiques.

To view Rob's work, please visit his portfolio.

For further information and to register, please contact Anne Sims at Chanticleer.
