"Picture Perfect Weekend Workshops" by Todd & Brad Reed Photography
Located at the Cartier Mansion in Ludington, Michigan
Mission Statement for Workshops
The workshops are designed to teach you how to “see the world in photographs”. Todd and Brad Reed cover many technical aspects of photography (include shutter speed, F-stops and aperture, ISO, depth of field, etc.) and we teach you how to make better choices with your own camera. Todd and Brad also spend a lot of time teaching you how to break down a photograph into all of its technical and artistic elements. The workshops will also focus on the art/vision side of photography and to provide you with more choices/building blocks to create great art. Todd and Brad will teach you the 20 artistic elements they use when they are in the field "making" their photographs. The weekend workshops are great for a beginner with a new camera or a seasoned professional who is looking for a different perspective. All ages and abilities are welcomed. We will share all of our secrets on every aspect of our photography business and our secrets on how we shoot. We prefer you have a digital SLR. If you don’t, please have a camera that has a full manual mode so you can change the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. “Point and shoot” cameras that only have full auto or only have limited manual modes will not work for this workshop.
The price of the Picture Perfect Weekend Workshops, including food and refreshments is $400. Lodging is not included. You may stay at the Cartier Mansion at their nightly rates if rooms are available or you may stay elsewhere. The Mansion fills up fast during these weekend workshops so the sooner you register the better your chances of getting the room you want.
All registration and reservations are made through the Todd and Brad Reed Photography. Please call the gallery at 231-843-0777 to reserve your spot today. Payment for the workshop portion of the registration is expected at the time of reservation. Cancellations must be made at least two weeks in advance of the workshop weekend to receive a refund. Each workshop is limited to the first 15 people to sign up and must have a 10-person minimum. This 10-person minimum must be reached two weeks prior to the workshop.

We have photographed bald eagles, owls, hawks, song birds, swans, turkeys and woodpeckers to name just a few. You will be able to photograph the animals out of one of Legends Ranch’s many easily accessible blinds.
