Moose Peterson Workshops
Short Lens Wildlife Photography Course is for anybody with any brand and any focal length lens. But the goal is to teach basic and advance wildlife photography techniques and strategies using lenses no longer than 400mm. Just how do you fill the frame with your subject with just a 200mm or 300mm lens? That's one question we'll answer in this two day class. In that answer is such information like finding the critter, light, flash, biology, approach and a few other essential pieces of the puzzle. August 18-19

Photography Biz Course - The business of photography, it seems to mystify, frustrate and baffle most. I can understand why, there is a ton of really bad information out there! For a long time, we held a business course in our office but the response died so it stopped. Then with the web getting hot, the "need" seemed great again so we offered a class but it too soon died off. Now in the first half of this year we've been pounded with the question, "DO you offer a photography business course?"  November 17-18

To register, call 760.924.8632, and leave a comment for your chance to win a copy of Moose’s book, Captured!
