Workshops Committee:

See the Club Calendar for the schedule. A sample workshop slideshow is below: 

Currently, due to the Covid 2019 situation, all workshops are by Zoom and are limited to members only.

With Jacques Woods taking the role of Vice President, he has asked me to step up and lead the workshop committee. He set an example that will be  difficult to match, but I will try my best.

Currently the workshop committee consists of just me. We could definitely use some additional help. If you have a desire to help plan, execute and perhaps even lead a workshop, please contact me via email.

As we still must content with COVID and its restrictions, we will attempt to hold workshops online until we can safely meet in person. When practical the workshop will be 2 parts. A classroom portion, followed in a few weeks a “presentation” portion, where the attendees will show off what they managed to accomplish with the new skills.

Flash Photography Workshop

Presented by Brian Osborne

Brian Osborne is the owner and lead instructor of the Photo Classroom. He is also the founder of the Professional Photography Group, Charlotte’s largest photography team.


This two-part class will help you understand using your flash for both inside and outdoor photos.  We will also talk in-depth about how to get soft lighting, what are the main controls on the flash, the importance of fill flash and much more in the first session.   Then the second session will allow participants to share some of their own images created with and without the flash both for critique and in order to learn more from the discussion.  Brian will provide some suggested practice exercises at the end of the first session to guide the types of images that participants might work on before the second session.



Session 1:  February 8, 9-10:30 am

Session 2:  February 22, 9-10:30am
