Join local professional photographer Barry Wojciechowski as we start a season of digital photography workshops at Sleeping Giant Provincial Park. Barry was born in Thunder Bay and is passionate about Sleeping Giant Provincial Park. After years of working and living in the park, Barry has become intimately familiar with the wealth of photo opportunities available at Sleeping Giant.
So pull out your camera gear, dust off the cobwebs and let Barry refresh or enhance your camera skills with tips and techniques on the how to’s of digital photography amongst the inspiring natural wonders of Sleeping Giant Provincial Park.
All workshops will begin with indoor instructional slide presentations in the park’s visitor centre theatre. Afterwards, time will be spent outside practicing your hands-on photography skills under Barry’s guidance. Various park trails and scenic locations will be used during each workshop. Opportunities for personalized feedback from Barry will be provided.
Three one day workshops and a fall weekend workshop are planned (beginner to intermediate level). All workshops are available for a fee on a first come first booked basis. Detailed course information and registration is available at www.superiorvisits.com
