March 7 – Seminar for WACCO in Milwaukee, WI

March 8 – Macro workshop in Milwaukee, WI


Dixie and I are working on several new photo workshops we plan to add to our schedule in the next year. 


Subscribe to our web page to learn about new programs right away.  Being experts at close-up photography, we are offering in-depth programs covering macro photography, including one-day photo workshops.  We conduct these workshops indoors to eliminate unfavorable weather that would make it difficult to teach important skills.  Focus stacking is an enormously important technique that all close-up photographers must master!  We teach you how to shoot the "stack" and how to process it.

We are conducting a one-day seminar where we present instructional slide programs on March 7, 2020 in Wisconsin for the Wisconsin Area Camera Club Organization.

Then on March 8, we teach our intensive macro class with a limit of 20 students where we provide wonderful subjects to photograph using setups with pleasing backgrounds and excellent lighting.


Our macro workshops that we teach at Robert's Camera in Indianapolis, IN are set for March 28 & 29.  We taught this class for Robert’s in 2019, and we are excited to offer this workshop/seminar again in 2020!
