Go Photo Workshops
Our goal in traveling and photographing is to educate the mind, challenge the spirit, and refresh our creativity as we journey through places and visit the spaces and places humanity has cherished, and photograph these with a wide array of image making equipment.
Each Go Photo workshop is held at a stunning location where you will be presented with incredible photo opportunities everywhere you turn. You will be in a small group situation, where you can shoot your own camera or one of our extraordinary state-of-the-art Hasselblad or Fuji systems with an instructor working with your group to help you produce simply amazing images for your portfolios.
Class size is limited to no more that 16 attendees and positions fill very fast.
The Go Photo Workshops on-location workshops are designed for one simple purpose: to enable you to take the best possible photos, with the best equipment, in the world’s most unique visual environments.
For even more individualized, portfolio building image making workshops, you can visit us in Colorado for one-on-one fashion/glamour/beauty shooting with your own gear or with a Hasselblad or Fuji system in one of the highest-end studios in the country with Profoto and/or Bron lighting, models, hair, makeup and wardrobe all supplied, or, go out into the Rocky Mountains for landscape shooting.

Go Photo has a goal to deliver the best educational experiences possible. You will be kept busy from the first day up until you return to the airport. Instructors will help you learn to see the shot and how to accomplish the best image capture possible. In addition you will learn tips and techniques for digital workflow, and new retouching skills. Once you have the image fully captured, processed and retouched, we will spend time learning what to do with it: how to print the image, publish it on the web, presenting the image in self-publishing of books, albums and display methods including mounting and framing.
Each day you will experience photographic excursions starting with sunrise and ending with sunset. During the day and evening there will be presentations by the instructors, one on one tutoring and review of images and portfolios. Workshops are held in some of the most beautiful locations in the world. These locations will offer magnificent opportunities to capture beautiful images.
Usually, there is a sunrise/morning shoot and a late afternoon/sunset shoot that are pre-scheduled at specific locations. Normally we will venture out before sunrise to arrive at specific locations by sunrise. The attendees are split into small groups and usually groups go to different locations so as not to be crowded at any one location. We will normally travel in vans that will allow one staff person and an instructor to 5 student – attendees. After sunrise we will have breakfast and this is usually followed by a morning workshop session by one of the instructors. Lunch is usually followed by an afternoon session before heading out to catch the sunset. Some workshops may have all day shoots depending on locations. After dinner we will normally hold an evening workshop and or free time to work on your images. Instructors and staff will be available to help with software related questions or image enhancement.
A laptop computer is a must. And if you choose to use one of the Hasselblad systems for some of your images, you will be working with large size digital files. We also recommend that you bring an external hard drive to back up your files.
Most Go Photo workshops are limited to no more than 16 attendees, some are even less. But during the day, you will be broken into much smaller groups for more individual attention.
Dan, the owner of Go Photo, is one of the main instructors on every workshop. For some workshops, we have partnered with talented and sought after specialist instructors to teach these workshops, who each bring a unique talent and teaching skill to each workshop. You’ll learn from different points of view allowing you to blend all ideas into your own.
The cost for each workshop is dependent on the location and lodging and meals of that location.
If you are looking for a workshop that will allow you to take your photography to the next level ten this si the workshop for you. Other workshops are small and less organized.

Beauty can be seen in all things. Learning to see and compose the beauty is what separates the travel snapshot from the photograph.Dan Jahn, owner, Go Photo
