Is there a thread somewhere on the forum that's dedicated to this topic? If not, I think we should have one. I've never been to a photography workshop, but I've been thinking about giving it a try in the next year or so. My photography has been a sideline activity in all of my traveling and I'm wondering what I can produce if I actually concentrate on it. It also seems enjoyable from a social perspective to hang out with some other photographers and get some "expert" input. It may also be an excuse to travel somewhere that I normally wouldn't go and see some new things...grizzly bear photography in northern BC or Yellowstone National Park in winter as a couple examples. In doing some research, there are a LOT of seemingly talented photographers out there leading many different tours and workshops--I'm mostly interested in the landscape/nature/wildlife genre. A lot of them are also VERY expensive. How do you choose? Any good or bad experiences? Is it worth the money, realizing that is a very subjective question? I'd love to see some reviews and get some first-hand feedback--good and bad--on specific workshops/tours you've taken.
