How this works: One on one workshops are designed to be private and intensive. With years of experience organizing and producing workshops for hundreds of students, I can help you choose a great workshop!
Frequently asked questions:
How do I choose a workshop? There are two sections to choose from, One on One Workshops and Group Workshops. What do you want to learn? Is there anything that you’re struggling with, like flash photography or composition? You can choose a specific subject or a Bootcamp Workshop which covers all the subjects you need in order to improve your skills and make better photos.
How do I reserve my workshop? Just go to the Reserve tab and fill out the form. You can also write to email@example.com or look me up on Facebook or Instagram. Reserving is easy. Just let me know which workshop you want to reserve, when and where. It's that easy! Leave a deposit through Paypal, Venmo or ATH Móvil. You can also send a personal check in the mail (email me for the address).
I don't want to take a workshop by my self, can I invite a friend? Yes you can! Friends and family get special discounts, just make sure they're as serious about learning as you are! Alternatively, you can sign up for a group workshop instead of a One on One.
How many people can be in a private group workshop? I prefer to work with small groups, anywhere from 2 to 8 people is great for a one on one workshop. If you have friends who are interested in learning something new in photography sign them up!
Where will the workshop be? One on one workshops are held anywhere the students want. Yup, that's right! Some students prefer to have me go to their house, work place or studio and give the workshop there. Other students let me decide where to give the workshop. My studio in Puerto Rico is equipped with editing tables and other amenities for a comfortable workshop experience. Also, depending on the workshop, we will be mostly shooting outdoors.
Can you travel to my country?
I am a destination wedding photographer and also a documentary photographer, I am used to traveling to get to work and complete assignments. I will design your workshop, travel to your country and teach for you and your friends. If you want the workshop to be one on one, you might have to be patient and wait for other confirmations in order to cover my traveling costs.
Can I travel to Puerto Rico and take a One on one workshop? Yes you can! Depending on the workshop length, I can include room and board for my students either in a villa, hotel or you can stay in my own workshop/studio lodge.
What is the difference between a One on one Workshop and a Group Workshop?
One on one workshops are given to one person individually. The material given to each student is different as it depends greatly on their level in photography. If you are just learning to work your camera on manual mode or if you already have twenty years of experience taking photos, there is always something to learn. Alicia makes sure to design the workshop according to each participant. Also, in one on one workshops the participant decides the time and place of the workshop. There have been students who organize a group of friends interested in the subject. That's a great idea too! Also will design the workshop according to everyone's level, gear and experience. Sometimes in groups certain people feel intimidated to scared to ask, taking a workshop by your self or with friends you feel comfortable around makes it easier for allot of participants.
Group workshops are a great alternative to meet new people. Sometimes schools and companies organize seminars and workshops for me. I have no control on who comes to the workshop, so if you have any specific questions on a particular workshop make sure to contact the organizers. I also organize group workshops to either fund rase for cultural centers or offer a workshop experience you simply wont find anywhere else. These Workshops will be announced at least three months before the workshop date and, you can sign up by clicking on the workshop tab and filling out the form. A deposit is required to reserve your seat in the workshop. Group Workshops have specific dates, which you cannot postpone and a specific location. If you would rather choose your own day, your own location or have the workshop in the privacy of your home, you want to take a One on one Workshop.
Pricing, how do you price your workshops?
Prices for these One on one workshops have not changed since 2009. Even though gas, food, travel and other expenses keep getting higher, I vowed to never change the price of my workshops in order to keep them accessible to students, beginners on a budget, serious amateurs and professionals alike. It is an investment. Workshops should always be on your list of most important things to invest in. A new camera isn't really worth spending on if you don't know how to use it!
