Jennifer George Walker – M. Photog.Cr., of San Diego, views photography as a conveyance of spiritual communication.

Jennifer will help you make the connection in her program “The Creative Journey.”

Tony Corbell – Cr. Photog., API, of San Diego, has often been referred to as “the lighting guy” in the photo magazines. He will lead attendees on a journey through complete understanding of light control on location as he takes the group out into the beautiful vineyards of Napa to photograph prominent local citizens.

Having room for only 40 students (currently only 16 spaces are available), the two-day workshop will feature two instructors each day. The event starts off with a Wine & Cheese Reception at the River Terrace Inn on Sunday evening. The two-day workshop begins on Monday, January 30th.

The event is reasonably priced at $250 for two full-days with each instructor for Professional Photographers of California and Professional Photographers of America members. “We want to make this program affordable for all photographers and their staff,” says School Director, Tony Corbell. “If they’ve made an investment in a membership with PPA or PPC, they get a discounted price on this workshop.” Non-members pay only a small amount more ($350 for the two-day workshop), but the discounted price gives a nod to the benefits of being a member of a professional association.
