How is the workshop structured?

Attendees will arrive on Sunday evening at 7pm for drinks & an introduction at the A Bryan Photo studio. We will spend our mornings in studio learning from the A Bryan Photo team. In the afternoons you will have the chance to learn new film cameras while photographing families & couples. Each evening we will all enjoy dinner together at great local restaurants and dialogue about the day. By the conclusion of the workshop, we will also offer personalized sessions with each of our team members. This is a great time to go over any specific questions about each individual's business.

What are the accommodations?

We are recommend booking a room at either the Tutweiler or the Westin. Both are downtown and we will be picking up attendees each morning from these hotels should you choose to not rent a car. The studio is about a mile from the Tutwiler and a 1 1/2 miles from the Westin should you choose to walk.
Let us know if are interested in sharing a room and we may be able to connect you with a fellow attendee.
