We have 4 great instructors coming into town, and you will spend 4 hours with each of them. The teaching styles will vary, but each workshop will feature a mixture of seminar and shooting time.

About the instructors and their workshops:
Sponsored by Fuji: Aaron Anderson
Aaron Anderson Visuals started back in 2009 with a camera and a speedlight. My goal was to create images that people wanted to stare at, even if they weren't sure why. This seemingly simple goal took me to the Academy of Art in San Francisco, where I spent countless hours in the studio and sitting behind a screen in Photoshop. After school I worked as a retoucher at Sugar Digital. Sugar gave me incredible experience working with clients like Coca-Cola, ESPN the magazine, Tazo, Google and more. I emerged a different photographer and retoucher, with new skills and a distinct style.
