Have you always wanted to learn the art of photography? Do you have a camera that you can't begin to figure out? Urban Rhino Columbus offers a variety of instructional workshops for students from high school to adult. Registration for our current Fall Glamour Workshop is now open! Spots are limited. Use the link below to register.
Join my crew and I, a certified photography teacher, for an amazing day filled with amazing people! We will meet at The Commons in downtown Columbus, Indiana. From there, the group will travel by foot to several spots around the town, including the current Exhibit Columbus installations. Each spot will feature styled models, ready to take direction from us...including you! You will have the opportunity to interact not only with myself and each other, but with the models as well.
In Session I we will cover the basics of photography, such as lighting, shooting in manual, camera settings including ISO, aperture and shutter speed basic posing. Individual children, grouped children and mother and child models will be available for this session. You do not have to have experience to take part in this workshop! Once you finish the first session, you should feel confident enough to participate in the second session, should you choose.
In Session II, we will cover more advanced photography topics, such as shooting in RAW, external lighting, exposure, lens choice, styling, posing and interacting with clients, choosing your settings plus much more! No topic is off the table! Individual children, grouped children, siblings, mother and child and maternity models will be available for this session.
So come, learn some tips and tricks, network, and build your portfolio. I hope to see you there!

Where do I go when I arrive?
Parking downtown is a little easier on the weekends, but there are public parking garages available near The Commons as well. When you get to The Commons, enter through the main doors. You will find the group right inside the entrance.
What equipment should I bring?
We ask that you bring your equipment (cameras, lenses, lighting, etc.) which you usually shoot with. Although we will be passing our equipment around to be looked at, we just don’t have enough to provide equipment for everyone attending. Our goal is to show you how we shoot, what we use and how to better use the equipment you already have. Make sure you also have at least a 16GB SD card and a charged battery.
What should I wear?
We will be outside the majority of the time, so dress in layers. This time of year, it's hard to predict the weather, so make sure you are prepared for changing temperatures throughout the workshop. We will also be doing quite a bit of walking to each spot, so make sure you have on comfortable shoes. There is also the potential that we may walk through a little mud or puddles of water depending on previous weather, so keep that in mind as well.
Will I be learning how to edit?
This workshop is targeted towards shooting and great capture...not editing. While we may reference it and touch base on it slightly we will not be spending any time really looking at it closely. Why?...Well there just isn’t enough time to do it all. We will have editing tutorial videos from the workshop available for purchase through our website, shortly after the workshop date. Please reference the itinerary for a complete list of what we’ll be teaching and what you can expect to learn.
Are travel and lodging included?
No...you are responsible for getting to and from the workshop meeting point (The Commons) and for your hotel lodging (if required).
Are meals or snacks provided?
Meals are not provided, so please make sure you eat before arriving. We will provide light snacks and bottles of water available to anyone attending. If you plan on attending both sessions, you will have a 30 minute break if you want to grab food at a local restaurant or bring something.
