Andrew’s seminar will provide ample time for participants to ask questions throughout the day and for one-on-one interactions with Andrew to help you get the most out of the sessions.

Morning Session
Ontario & Beyond is an overview of landscapes found in Ontario and throughout the world. Andrew will share his photographic tips, digital darkroom techniques, as well as in-the-field experiences and observations that influenced his compositions at the time of capture.

A Photographer’s Guide to the Ontario Landscape presentation takes an in-depth look at the many outstanding photo destinations in the vast and varied terrain of Ontario. Become inspired, gain knowledge, and create stunning imagery in your own backyard. This presentation is based on Andrew’s first eBook “A Photographer’s Guide to the Ontario Landscape”. In this e-book, he covers many of the best locations; from the remote Abitibi Canyon to Point Pelee, the Ottawa Valley to the Algoma Highlands and beyond, in an easy-to-read, easy-to-follow guide, complete with driving directions to each destination. The e-book will be available at special presentation rates $20

Afternoon session
Wild Places Wild Faces will cover wildlife in Ontario and beyond. High-quality and dramatic imagery throughout the presentation will inspire and educate the audience on various tips and techniques that Andrew uses in the field, on a daily basis, to create inspiring photographs. Finding Inspiration will take a look at our habits as photographers and discuss new ways to approach our photography and ways to get out of creative ruts.

Door prizes from Wimberley and Singh Ray Filters. Coffee, tea and cookies provided in morning and afternoon breaks.
