Free Seminar

I'm happy to announce that I will be offering a FREE seminar at the Orange County Great Park on Sunday, May 16th from 10:00am-11:30am! That's's FREE!

I will be covering the photography basics of shutter speed, aperture and ISO in a beginner-oriented class. If you've previously received private lessons from me or you've attended my class at the Irvine Fine Arts Center or my seminar at Shutterstories, then this will simply be review for you. But to anyone who wants to learn shutter speed, aperture and ISO for the first time or anyone who wants to brush up on it, this class is for you!

Space is very limited and seats must be reserved. Click here for more information.

Back Again at Shutterstories!

Don't forget that I'm back at Shutterstories in Riverside on May 2nd to give my "Manual Exposure and Filtration for Nature Photography" seminar! Honestly, Shutterstories is one of my very favorite places to teach and this seminar is one of my best. The facility is fantastic - very nice - and the seminar is really the most information for your money. You won't be disappointed!

What is it?
Learn how to manually expose and get the pictures you envisioned in the "Manual Exposure and Filtration for Nature Photography" seminar led by Outdoor Photographer published writer and photographer Nick Carver. This seminar is sure to demystify the seemingly complex craft of manual exposure and how to get the correct exposure from the start. Nick Carver will teach you his easy-to-understand and fun-to-use technique for manual exposure so you'll never have to guess at exposure again! You'll also learn how to use the must-have filters of all the great landscape photographers along with pro field techniques that will take your images from amateur to pro in record time!

Who's it for?
Photographers of all skill levels

When is it?
Sunday, May 2, 2010 from 1:00pm - 4:00pm

Seminar Ideas

In lieu of my on-location photography workshops, I'm cooking up some new classroom-setting seminars throughout OC, San Diego County and Riverside County. Before I set them in stone, though, I'd like to know what you'd like to learn!

For a class that's maybe 2-3 hours at around $40-$50 a head, what would you like to learn? Manual exposure, filters, advanced composition, something else...what? I'd love to hear!

Please send an email to info [at] nickcarverphotography [dot] com if you'd like to be heard!

Thank you!
