Since it's conception in 1975 The Cole/Marr Photography Workshops have always tried to impress upon it's students that knowledge without practical application was and is meaningless. With this in mind, we design and execute in the field workshops that allow small groups to observe and engage in photographic studies along side of working professionals.
These workshops allow the students to see problem solving and creative image making under true working conditions, while enjoying the great outdoors in some of North America's most beautiful destinations. Some of our upcoming "In the field workshops" are listed below. Come let us show you great photo opportunities.
