Architectural Photography Course

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
Note: This is a new Workshop offering!

Two of the fastest growing photographic techniques today include High Dynamic Range Photography and Panorama Photography. This is largely due to the fact that Software Programs like Lightroom have now made it relatively effortless to achieve great images.

All you need to bring to learn the basics of High Dynamic Range and Panorama Photography is yourself … and a mind and an attitude eager to learn … along with a desire to have fun.

Rick Hulbert will help you though all the steps necessary to create great images that will be the envy of your friends and family and will impress your clients.
You will be treated to a combination of lectures, hardware demonstrations, hands-on shooting, and software demonstrations using selected class images.

The beauty of this workshop is that no special gear is required.
Rick is going to use Lightroom Software as a hub for post processing your images, but at your personal request, he will also demonstrate other popular software options including Photomatix Pro, HDR Efex Pro, Aurora HDR Pro, and Photoshop.
Whether you want to create “realistic” or “surrealistic” images, Rick will show you the way.

You will learn how to set up your camera to obtain the best results.
You will learn the best techniques for achieving the look you want.
You will learn though demonstrations and though hands-on field photography.
If you so desire, Rick Hulbert will be with you on location and will show you how to set up your own camera for best results in achieving HDR and/or Panoramic images.

The best part of this workshop is that it will guarantee that acquiring an understanding how to create Panoramic images and High Dynamic Range images will improve your traditional still photography.

Knowledge is power. Rick’s aim is to provide you with an understanding of photography that can’t be found in photography books . . . not yet, anyway!

I must say that there was considerable information passed along to us. It will take some time to absorb all the excellent tips and techniques. And thanks for sending along the notes.”
— John Sarembas

“I have just finished the second Vancouver Photography Workshop this year with Rick Hulbert and I wanted to pass on my thanks to you for offering courses with such a capable instructor. His expertise in photography, combined with his professional experience in architecture and urban planning, gives him a unique background, but almost more important to a student is his enthusiasm that each individual benefit from his knowledge. He was able to help every student progress in whatever direction he or she wanted to pursue and that has to be a testimonial to his expertise as a communicator and teacher. I learned a great deal and will be back for more.”
— Ellen Williams

“I just wanted to thank you again for another brilliant course. I can’t believe how much my eye and skill has improved. My clients even notice a difference after each session you and I have together. Your creative touch is second to none! You are an absolutely brilliant teacher and I just can’t thank you enough for all of your time and expertise. You have made me feel incredibly proud to show off my hard work. Thanks to you my photography has reached a level that I had only dreamed about. The advice you have given me on the business of photography and marketing myself has been outstanding and has produced great results already. I am waiting with great anticipation for our next course.”
