After the Workshop:
Once you participate in the DSLR workshop you will be given access to
all of the course material for review whenever you need it. Plus, you
will become part of the mentorship program which means that if you have
any follow up questions related to DSLR photography you can contact me
If this sounds like the course you've been looking
for, give me a call to find out when the next one is going to be held.
Or, if you can't get to one of the scheduled workshops, suggest
to your local dive shop that they host one. I can usually schedule a
workshop at your local shop if I have a minimum of 6 participants.
I look forward to hearing from you!
