Grey Partridge Films - Photography and Film Production House

Here is a practical, comprehensive photography workshop for the aspiring and also a proficient nature photographer. To find a friendly and comprehensive workshop that can help you learn nature photography has been difficult, except for the technological kind. There has always been a lot of anecdotal material – better known as war stories – but almost nothing perspective, practical and encouraging. Here is a workshop that explains the procedures using analogies, exercises and illuminating mentor-ship. Like none other, this workshop prepares you for the thought processes, feelings, judgments, and techniques that a photographer needs throughout the demanding and fascinating experience of photographing nature.
