    The company I work for has said they would be willing to pay for me to take a photography workshop this year. I've been doing a little research but I would like some input from everyone here too to see if you guys have heard of a good one or attended one you were happy with.

    They'll fly me where I need to go, so I believe any location will be fine.

    Thanks!

    What type of photography do you do?

    I was going to suggest one of Michael Reichmann's workshops...but he's taking the year off. He does have a list of other photographer's workshops though....

    Thanks Big Mike. I should've mentioned what type of photography in my first post lol.

    Currently I do mostly commercial focusing on restaurants (menus, website etc.), lawfirms (mostly websites), agriculture (magazine articles, websites). So some techniques I would be interested in learning more about would be lighting with on/off camera flashes, maybe some posing of people, and overall technique when it comes to commercial photography.

    I also have started doing some portraits in my own time and have booked a wedding for later this year, so if there are any workshops that would benefit those along with commercial photography that would be excellent. Thanks.

    Thanks, those look like great workshops. Do you know of any that would cover a larger commercial shoot? Such as a wider view of a setup of food in a restaurant...or people in a restaurant setting?
