PD Day Nature Photography Workshop

Note: as of Tuesday morning, Nov. 21st, there are no spots remaining for our Friday workshop at the Arboretum. All new registrations will be on a waiting list.

Our next PD Day Workshop will be held on November 24th, 2017 at the Guelph Arboretum Taylor Nature Centre. To register, please fill out our online registration form. Students must be at least 8 years old. The fee for the day is $55 per student with a maximum of 20 students attending.

Payment can be made by Interac transfer to workshops@focusonnature.ca; by PayPal; or credit card over the phone with me at 226-971-0701. Registration will not be confirmed until payment has been received.

The workshop starts promptly at 9:00am and will finish at 3:30pm. Please arrive a few minutes early to sign in. Early drop off and late pickup is available for $5 per half hour.

Cameras and laptops (for photo editing) will be provided or students may bring their own if they already know how to use them. Laptops should be loaded with Picasa 3 editing software which can be downloaded for free here. If they don’t have their own laptop, students should bring a memory stick to save their photos on.

Students should bring their own lunch, drink and snack, and dress for the weather. Let us know on the registration form if there are any allergy issues.

The PD Day workshop format will be similar to a Focus on Nature school workshop, consisting of a morning talk about nature photography; a morning photo safari through the Arboretum; lunchtime; photo editing; and slideshows of everyone’s “Top Shots”. Parents are welcome to attend the slideshows during the last hour of the workshop.

Our PD Day workshop will be an excellent opportunity for students to deepen their interest in photography, while enjoying all that the Arboretum has to offer young nature explorers. Register now and let your friends know about this PD Day opportunity!

Thanks you.
