Get some new camera gear for Christmas? Then you may be interested in signing up for one of the Giant Digital Photography Workshops offered at Ontario Parks in the Thunder Bay area this season!
Join local professional photographer Barry Wojciechowski as we explore tips and techniques for digital photography among the inspiring natural wonders of our spectacular Northwestern Ontario Parks. Workshops are great for both 35mm DSLRs and point & shoot camera users. And a small group size ensures personalized feedback from the instructor.
In addition to some of our favourites, new workshops have been added to the 2012 schedule in order to cover all seasons, more parks and to vary course lengths.
