Our Photography Workshops are a unique and fun experience for creative people. We are proud to host the only Seascape Photography Workshop in Puerto Vallarta and include hands-on assignments such as shooting long exposures, using filters, composition tips, camera-specific lessons and more!
In this 90 min course, we will discuss and demonstrate how to identify the quality of light and find the best lighting for your subjects. Our composition assignments will get you in the habit of combining the right lenses and angles for the perfect photo. You will also learn how to get drastically different effects from using different apertures and shutter speeds. This course is designed to teach you the fundamentals of landscape photography and how you can apply that to any scene. We will cover documenting vast land and seascapes as well as capturing details of our location.
All skill levels and camera types can benefit from our courses as we tailor our workshops to each individual student’s needs, interests, and skill levels. You can expect to have a better knowledge of exposure and your own camera by the end of the workshop. If you are planning on using a camera phone, please advise us beforehand so we can recommend photography apps to use during the course.
We will meet at Calle Easy 121, Conchas Chinas, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. (Make sure you take Calle Easy, not Calle Sagitario)

About the lesson: Our workshops are group learning environments with a demonstration and verbal presentation, but each student will receive personal one-on-one attention during the hands-on portion of the course. We will begin our lesson with a discussion on land and seascape photography as well as basics on exposure. We will then practice shooting fast shutter speed images to stop action and then using tripods and potentially filters to create long exposures to capture motion. We will be practicing different compositions as well as shooting details of the beach.
