My friend Rick LePage and I have been printing photographs for more than 20 years and we are passionate about the art of printing. We are super excited to announce our next round of printing workshops, to be held in my Portland studio in early 2024.
For us, there is no greater feeling for a photographer than holding a print you’ve captured, edited and run through a printer yourself. Whether you have never printed before and want an introduction to the process or you have some experience printing and would like to further hone your skills, we are excited to have you join us.
Course Description Limited to a maximum of six participants, these two identical workshops will include ample one-on-one and group classroom time. In the studio, we’ll have a number of photo printers of all sizes — from letter-size printers to large-format printers capable of printing up to 44 inches wide. We’ll talk about the differences between printers, discuss paper types and print longevity, and give you tips and techniques for optimizing your editing to achieve great prints. Over the course of the workshop, you’ll have time to work on your own prints in the studio, and will take home up to five prints that you’ve worked on during our time together.
These workshops are designed for photographers of all levels, and the small class size will let you learn at your own pace, and with your own goals in mind. Maybe you have long wanted to print your photos, but haven’t done much, if any, printing at all. Maybe you have a photo printer or some limited printing experience, but want to get better prints. Or you’re an old hand who wants to fine tune your workflow and expand your media horizons — or you want to start printing BIG.
Regardless of your printing or editing level, our goal is to inspire you to add the print to your photographic repertoire. And, with the small class size, you’ll be guaranteed to get plenty of hands-on instruction from me and Rick, as well as lots of time with the group to chat about printing and pore over each other’s prints during the process.
What’s Included Each workshop is priced at $1,695, which includes a $200 lab fee that covers media supplies; a welcome dinner the night before the workshop; two-and-a-half days of classroom instruction; and lots of open lab time in my studio, where you can work with Rick and me on prints and editing.
Payment Terms You can reserve a spot in either of the workshops by placing an $800 deposit. We will send an invoice for the remaining balance approximately 90 days prior to the workshop. The balance must be paid in full 60 days prior to the workshop to hold your place.
Workshop payments are fully refundable less a 10% fee up to 60 days prior to the first day of the workshop. If you cancel anywhere from 59 to 30 days prior to the workshop, we will make every effort to find a replacement. If we can fill your spot, 90% of your workshop fee will be refunded; if we cannot find a replacement, we will refund 50% of your workshop fee. Any cancellation within 30 days is non-refundable.
