Q&A For my Weekend at the Races workshop July 21-23, 2017

Q) Why is the class size so limited?
A)So I can devote more time to each student and some areas have the track have limited access.

Q) Do I need to be a Nikon Camera owner?
A) No, students should use the camera they are most comfortable with.

Q) Why is this workshop more expensive than your other class?
A) This workshop requires a lot more preparation time and promises to give each student one-on-one time, which means there are fewer students to share the cost.

Q) So the masterclass takes up the whole weekend?
A) Yes. Four hours Friday night and about seven hours both Saturday and Sunday. 

Q) Do I need to attended the whole weekend?
A) No, and if you can't meet on Saturday for your one-on-one time, we can arrange a date in the future to edit together.

Q) Are you feeding us Friday night?
A) No, but we will have beer wine and light refreshments

Q) What do I need to bring?
A) A digital camera and a few lenses. Also a must and very important: bring empty memory cards and extras if you think you'll should a lot.

Q) What about a laptop and software?
A) You will need a laptop Saturday for your one-on-one editing time. Photo Mechanic editing software and Photoshop would be a plus. You can bring a laptop Friday to download your images if you don’t mind carrying it with you all night.

Q) I don’t own a laptop.
A) Let me know and we’ll work something out.

Q) I bought a ticket to your workshop, but now I can't go.
A) I understand we all have busy lives, but a lot of time, effort and set-up costs go into my workshops. There are no refunds for cancellations within two weeks of the event, and 50 per cent for cancellations within 30 days.  However, if I cancel or change the date, a full refund will be offered.

Q) Tarry G. asks: I own a Leica Q with a fixed 28mm lens that I want to use. Do I need a longer lens and DSLR body?
A) No. I encourage students to use whatever their must comfortable with.

Q) Will this limit what I can do and shoot?
A) No. Never let your camera limit what you can do. I will encourage students to shoot a visual story with the gear they have.

Q) Will there be cameras and lenses at the race track that I can use?
A) Their will have a limited supply for students to use.

Price, availability and location are all subject to change.
