The Summer Photography Workshop with Alex Strohl

    Alex has always let his lens be his guide, capturing intentional, yet authentic storylines and photo sets as events unfold, rather than orchestrating scenes. Join him for over 2.5 hours as he takes you through the cerulean waters of Mexico, shooting in harsh light and underwater, and then as you head to the mountains of Montana to perfect your experiential photography. Through it all, he'll walk you through organizing your photo catalog, creating and using a preset, editing and building a consistent body of work, and curating an incredible photo set.
