Welcome to Dan Ballard Photography Workshops.  I offer private & small group workshops almost anywhere in the world.   Combining my love of photography & my love of traveling will help to make your workshop an unforgettable experience.  I have traveled to over 50 different countries on 5 continents - immersing myself in the cultures of the countries I visit & photograph.

During a workshop with me you will experience how I actually scout, shoot and process my images.  Workshops are structured to fit your needs & we will spend time working on the exact things that you feel are important & that are needed to take your photography to the next level.  That may be camera skills or it may be very advanced composition and photographic concepts.  Usually we will spend sunrises & sunsets shooting & will have time during the day to process your images using lightroom.  Time will also be spent working on the best way to showcase your images for display and on idea's for making money with your work.

These workshops can be as easy or intense as you choose.   I have given private workshops where we slept in the car and worked our butts off the entire time, basically without rest,  chasing the light for a chance at an incredible image.   Others are very low key and relaxed with focus more on learning and going over ideas and concepts.    Where a group workshop must have some sort of a plan, a private workshop allows us more spontaneity to shoot exactly like I do when I am alone.
