Workshops

I’ve got three workshops coming up, in addition to my final Nikon School of this season May 31 and June 1 in Washington DC.

Very excited about the Atlanta Botanical Gardens Workshop that I’m doing with Bill Durrence June 28-29, 2014.  Please let me know as soon as possible if you plan on attending this workshop as it will be cancelled if we don’t have enough people registered by June 1.  http://michaeltraining.com/workshops/abg2014/
