Davies Creative Workshop Announcements
PPA Super Monday
On October 14th and 15th at 9 am I will be helping you learn all about flash photography and how to setup a home based photography studio. My classes, â€śHow to Create a Home Studioâ€ť and â€śFlash Made Easy: A Class for Beginners and Natural Light Photographersâ€ť, are part of a nationwide educational event by Professional Photographers of America (PPA). Called Super Mondayâ€”as the majority are held on Mondaysâ€”these classes have been a huge success each year. Known for individual and focused attention, Super Monday features educational classes on diverse topics around the country, hosted by professional photographers.
You can learn more and register at http://www.ppa.com/education-events/sm/states/sm_states_co.php where you will receive early bird pricing of $99 (normally $120) until October 3rd.
