We spend an entire day learning D300/D300s operation, setups, and menus. Our goal is to help you learn the camera system so that you can create beautiful images when inspiration strikes! We’ll go through various camera setups that help optimize the settings for high-end portraits, colorful travel photography, dazzling night photography and nature photography. By the end of the day, you will feel very comfortable with this amazing digital camera system.

This course is packed with information that you can use immediately. We guarantee that you'll not only learn how to better use your Nikon D300/D300s, but you'll also learn to be a better photographer.

Our workshops are small (15 or less) so that we can spend a significant amount of time learning the cameras as well as answering individual questions. We guarantee that you'll learn more about your D300/D300s in this workshop than you ever thought was possible.

In our workshops, you will "Hear it. See it. Do it." so that you come away from the day with the most incredible learning experience you've ever encountered.
