Tired of coming home with blurry photos? Wondering what all those settings on the dial are? Hoping to put that fancy new lens or camera to use in the field? College Grants For Hispanics

Then join the Ancient Forest Alliance’s award-winning photographer TJ Watt for a fun, hands-on photography workshop intended for novices and amateurs in the incredible old-growth forests of Goldstream Park! Surrounded by 500+ year old trees, the gorgeous river, and wildlife, there will be no shortage of photo opportunities!

Born and raised in Metchosin, TJ has been shooting for nearly a decade and has a professional photography diploma from the Western Academy of Photography.
His images of BC’s biggest trees and giant stumps, for which he is best known, have been published in provincial and national magazines, books, posters, news media articles, and museums.

This outdoor workshop will cover tips and tools for beginner and intermediate level photographers as well as provide time for questions and answers.

We will learn:

- What’s on that dial? Understanding the different camera modes
- Shutter speed & Aperture
- What is ISO?
- The art of seeing. Creative visualization!
- Conscious framing. Composing the image
- The use of different lenses and filters
- How to not chop off heads
- How to have fun! (even with mosquitoes)

Items to bring:

- Your camera! Pocket digitals, digital SLRs, and film cameras are all fine!
- Memory card / Film
- Notebook
- A tripod if you have one
- A lunch & proper outdoor shoes/clothes
- A willingness to laugh, listen and learn!
