Zoom Workshop with Lisa Langell

Our club has been lucky enough to secure Lisa for an online workshop! Who is Lisa Langell? Lisa is based in the USA and is a member of the PSA. She is a professional wildlife and nature photographer and recognised online presenter. Her workshop is titled “An artistic photographer lies in all of us” and will be presented on Friday September 25th at 11.30am. (The early time is because of the 17hr time difference!)

HOW TO JOIN IN – I will send an email to all members. Simply follow the link to read all about Lisa and the details of the workshop she will present. Then follow the link to register. Register ASAP and then closer to the presentation date you will be sent an online Zoom link to follow to join in the workshop. SIMPLE!

All registered members will have access to a video of the workshop even if you you cannot attend, so it is best to register and then you will not miss out!

Lisa is giving her time free of charge to camera clubs all around the world. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to engage with a professional photographer who can help with your creative photography.
