Ottawa One Day Workshop

This past Saturday we had an incredible one day workshop in downtown and Byward Market areas Ottawa. We photographed everything from architecture, street scenes, panning shots of the Governor General’s Foot Guards, Melody our wonderful model and ended the day with a twilight shoot at the Congress Centre/NAC/Rideau Canal/Parliament Buildings. Already I am looking forward to running this workshop again next summer, what a fantastic day….it was over far too fast!

Here are some quotes from a couple of the participants:

Karen – “WOW!! What a splendid way to spend a Saturday! A leisurely stroll with old and new friends revisiting photographic principles through play….my idea of a great time. And btw, this pic’s a keeper! It’s a 10 (as is Melody). Thanks again for leading a stellar workshop. It was one of the very best. Let’s do it again!”

Alice – “Thanks for a fabulous 12 hours of workshop, Garry.”

    I think one of the reasons that I like your blog so much is that your posts resonate with me. Not only are you an incredibly accomplished photographer and one of the best workshop instructors anywhere, you are also one of the most down to earth people I know.

    Garry you have to be one of the best workshop and photo tour instructors anywhere in the world. I feel privileged to have learned from the “BEST”! Looking forward to our next adventure.

    Earlier this year I attended Garry’s “Basics and Beyond” workshop and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photography instructor. Garry’s patience seemed to have no end for a novice such as myself. His teaching style was very informative, yet delivered in a relaxing, easy to digest manner, without leaving one feeling confused by the technical side of photography. I left having gained a better understanding of my camera and how to use it to the best of its ability. The best part was the move from being in awe of the images that professional photographers produce, to feeling that with a bit more practice, I could achieve those too. Garry gave me the confidence to believe I could achieve this.
