Workshop Description:

We will talk about and practice composition, lighting, exposure, group shots, portraits, storytelling, all important editing and the very best way to share your photographs, which after all, is what this is all about.

Also, the iPhone is probably the most fun camera ever invented which is one of the reasons that this workshop is so much, well, FUN!

Thirty minute one-on-one sessions with Nick: these are by appointment only – Nick will talk about anything related to photography you wish to further explore.

And yes, you can bring your big girl / big boy camera and spend the whole time talking about f-stops, shutter speeds, and ISO settings. If there’s a better way to learn the basics I haven’t seen it, he said modestly.

Very simply, you will be a better photographer at the end of this weekend.

Su Yates was born in Buffalo, N.Y., but managed to overcome that adversity to rise to stellar heights of mediocrity in writing, performing, dancing and comedy. She has appeared in comedy clubs around the country first doing improvisational comedy and then stand-up comedy. She began her underwhelming career by writing and performing solo and ensemble comedy sketch pieces, her preferred comedy style. More recently, Su has been writing and performing stories and Spoken Word pieces.  She is working on her autobiography, “Memoirs of an Insignificant Baby Boomer.” She performed improv and stand-up comedy in Honolulu, Hawaii, for several years and in another international hub, the Oneonta and Delaware County area of New York State. She has attempted to dazzle crowds in Palm Springs, Berkeley and Bishop, California; Sarasota, Florida; Portland, Oregon and a slew of misbegotten locations. Su has also studied and performed Brazilian dance, clog dancing, Irish dancing, taiko drumming and hula. In addition to a fitness regimen, this allowed her to develop a physical style of comedy embellished by accents and physical characteristics from different cultures. Su attributes much of her skill to studying character development with Lanny Harrison of West Kortright Centre. Incredibly, Su has a master’s degree in Public Health and a Bachelor’s degree in Community Health Education. She has worked seriously in this field in Hawaii and New York.  Most recently, she is developing her own grant writing business.
