For those that don't know already, I offer one-on-one workshops for photography. How you don't know is shocking since I talk about it all the time, but let's pretend you are new here or that you have just discovered this amazing thing called the internet! Whatever you do, DO NOT answer any emails from a Nigerian Prince that wants to give you money... Welcome!
The great thing about a one-on-one workshop is that it is custom designed to teach you exactly what you want to know. There are a lot people that can be intimidated by a group workshop and I get that! You are worried that others might judge you for your ability level. On one of my solo workshops, there is no one to judge you and there are no stupid questions... unless they come from me. I promise you that whatever questions you have, I had at some point too.
I reached out to my friend and workshop attendant, Glynis Morse, to see if she would be kind enough to send me a short testimonial for her time with me. Well, what she sent back made me blush a little, but I think it sums up what you will experience well.
"For a year or so Charlie Widdis had been in my consciousness. I watched his travels on Facebook and marveled at the beautiful images he was making and then happened to meet him at an Art In the Park. Then months later I noticed he was offering a workshop which I really wanted to attend but I live in Texas most of the year so I wrote him and asked if he would consider giving me a one-on-one workshop when I was in Maine and he agreed. I wanted to learn to photograph the milky way and sunrise so he tailor-made a workshop for me and even threw in a third location because I mentioned I'd like to photograph the skyline of Portland. He researched the best time and date for the Milky Way. He is so knowledgeable about photography: the workings of the camera, and, as far as I know, how to photograph just about anything. He had an answer for every question I asked. He shoots Canon. I shoot Nikon, but he knew how to find the settings I needed. He is a perfectionist and works hard to capture the image correctly in camera. He's super creative and he was always suggesting another way to look at the scene and it was always better than I saw it. If you get a chance to attend one of his workshops do it. You will not be disappointed. Then after the workshop you have a new friend which I just love. Since my workshop I have sent him a couple of questions on how he might shoot something I was considering and he gave me a lengthy and thoughtful answer. I look forward to shooting with him again."
Thank you, Glynis! If you want to know more, please, leave a comment or shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
