Private Gigapixel Panoramic Photography Training

"One on One" private training is available. I realize that the 5 day annual workshop dates may not work for everyone. I offer individual One Day Mini-Workshops that cover the essentials needed to get started doing Gigapixel Panoramic Photography. I can custom tailor the instruction based on the individual's level of experience. In general, the curriculum will consist of the class room portion of days 1 to 3 of my Gigapixel Panoramic Photography Workshop held in Ouray, CO, Sept 28- Oct. 2, 2018.
