Greg Gorman’s Digital Workshop in Mendocino, California
After 30 years of taking photographs with various medium format analog cameras, Greg
Gorman has now fully transitioned his photo studio into the world of digital photography.
Throughout this transition, Greg has encountered and befriended many of the top experts
from all aspects of digital photography. Practicing his digital skills on a daily basis, Greg
quickly became so adept with his digital knowledge that he became a beta tester and a
speaker at digital conferences worldwide.
Greg has now decided to share his knowledge of digital photography in a more intimate
setting by conducting quarterly workshops. Having built a studio adjacent to his home in
the Northern California town of Mendocino*, Greg has the perfect venue for teaching these
workshops. The picturesque coast, the redwood forests, the vineyards, and the local sites
offer an amazing backdrop for photography students.
Greg’s workshop features a guest speaker of the week and gifts from many of his digital
sponsors. The week begins on a Sunday evening with a “meet and greet” dinner at Greg’s
home, cooked by Greg himself. During this time Greg becomes acquainted with his students
by reviewing their portfolios and familiarizing himself with the focus and needs of the
The weekday sessions consist of camera demos including setup and download, color
management, editing techniques, Photoshop lessons, fine art printing techniques and actual
printing of images for all students. The workshop provides two models and the students
have the opportunity to shoot both in studio and on location at one of the many locales
nearby. The students can choose to shoot portraits, nudes or landscapes.
For evening entertainment, Greg provides two wine tastings during the week. Being a wine
enthusiast, Greg invites one of his winemaking friends to pour the class some excellent
vintages. During the week there is a group dinner at The Albion River Inn, a famed local
restaurant. To wrap up the week on Friday evening, there is a slideshow of the student’s
images from throughout the week along with dinner and a presentation of gifts for certain
achievements. A final review on Saturday closes the workshop.
The workshop provides: two models, paper and ink, printers, daily lunches and beverages,
color management tools to calibrate monitors, two dinners and two wine tastings..
The students are required to bring: their portfolio, digital camera (power supply and battery),
flashcards, and a lap top computer with OSX or PC equivalent and a mouse.
