Workshop with Photographer Dan Dreyfus

Saturday, May 14th, 2022

8:30am – 4pm CST

Visitor Center in Forest Park, St. Louis, MO

 

Macro photography can transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. Through a macro lens, frost patterns can appear as intricate sculptures and the veins of leaves as cellular mosaics of color and shape. This workshop will be an in-depth look into macro photography. Presentations will precede shooting photo exercises in the park throughout the day.

A critique of participant work will take place the following Wednesday, May 18th from 5:30-7:30pm CST via zoom.

Dan is a professional photographer and photo educator with over 35 years experience. His work ranges for fine art to advertising. In 2014, Dan was one of ten American photographers invited by the Nanjing Photographic Association as part of the Sister Cities exchange program and IPHF to participate in a trip to China where their photography was exhibited in the Nanjing Hall of Science. In addition to his commercial work, he has produced three photo art books, the latest, Stillness In Light And Shadow, was printed in 2020.

“I’ve taken a ton of random photography classes and workshops over the years and Dan is the best teacher I’ve had. Dan is humble, and kind, which makes it very easy to be open and honest in his workshops.” – Becca Francis, Art Director, Photographer
