DBP is pleased to offer selected instructional nature and landscape photographic workshops several times each year. If you'd like further information on an event, don't hesitate to ask!

Danny is uniquely experienced with many types and formats of cameras and will be happy to introduce you to this equipment, which is often difficult to see first-hand. For digital and 35mm shooters, Danny is familiar with Canon equipment in both film and digital formats.  For his own shooting, Danny uses large format, 617 panoramic, and 6 x 8 medium format with a Fuji GX680III, and is intimately familiar with use of this equipment. Thanks  to sponsorship by Ebony Camera, workshop participants are treated to hands-on trial and instruction with an Ebony RW45 4x5 field camera. You can be introduced to important information such as tilt/shift and other camera movements, the advantages of shooting larger formats, and much more.  If you're thinking of moving to medium or large format, or would like to increase your knowledge in using the equipment that you already have, you've come to the right place! Of course, ALL types and formats of cameras are always welcome at any events. In addition, if you participate in the digital aspects of photography, Danny can assist you with its many aspects from selection and use of equipment to advanced post-processing techniques.
