DEVELOPING YOUR CREATIVE EDGE in TUCSON 2006
Thursday, Friday, Saturday and half-day Sunday, March 23-26, 2006

We're taking our "Developing Your Creative Edge" concept on the road, and this time it's in Tucson, Arizona in March of 2006. We'll be photographing:

Prior to our workshop you'll receive three different tutorials:

Throughout the course of our workshop, we'll be keeping these tutorials in mind as we move from place to place. Each tutorial comes with a set of assignments, so there's a method to our photographing madness throughout the workshop. And since we'll all be seeing similar things with similar goals in mind but with completely different eyes and styles, what we all come up with at the end of the trip will be quite illuminating.

I've set up an online group where, prior to our workshop, we can introduce one another, perhaps arrange in advance for carpooling, sharing of accommodations, ask and answer questions, etc. Once you've registered for the trip, I'll send you the group Internet address so that you can access all the information you'll need and can participate in our pre-workshop discussions. Naturally, you'll receive all this information in the mail as well, so if you don't have Internet access, you won't be left out of the mix.

Registration fee: $525 per person; a $200 deposit reserves your spot; balance due 60 days prior to the workshop date. Your registration fee includes instruction prior to the workshop in the form of tutorials, instruction throughout the workshop, as well as a follow-up critique after the workshop is over. In addition, it includes a group dinner during the course of the workshop. Transportation, admission fees, and accommodations are not included. Reasonably priced motel recommendations will be sent to you upon registration. Limited to 8 photographers. To register, call Carol Leigh at (800) 497-4686. This class is not yet included in our online store.

Who We Are
"We" consists of me (Carol Leigh) and my husband Chris Smith. I've been shooting since around 1978 and have had my pictures published over the years as greeting cards, in magazines, on plaques, brochures, and school notebook covers. I write guidebooks for photographers, publish California Photographer newsletter, and have been leading photo tours since the early '80s. Chris and I met in 1985 and he's been working with me ever since. We're both friendly, enthusiastic, outgoing, visually oriented, and work hard to make sure that everyone in our group receives personalized attention.
