Photography workshops typically consist of a one to three-week intensive series of classes where students learn the basics of photographic composition and printmaking. The intensive culminates in a gallery exhibition of students’ work including black and white or color photography, using traditional film cameras or digital equipment. Workshops take place all over the world on a variety of subjects.

Workshops are custom-designed to accommodate the interests of the host institution, its student population and its locale. Workshops could be a regional study, focusing on an educational theme – or project-oriented – creating a local calendar, postcards, or prints for sale by the students. Students are taught to see the visual composition of their everyday environment and the patience required to create unique, artistic, and compelling images.

Workshop costs are flexible. Each program can be custom-designed to fit budgets and schedules with straight-forward expenses: stipend, supplies, mileage, lodging and food. All materials necessary for a workshop are provided wholesale. This includes film, paper, chemistry, mats, frames and other supplies. In addition to designing, Robert Campagna is also available to assist in scheduling, budgeting and grant writing.
