Turnley will lead participants through a very exciting weekend of visual presentation, lecture, discussion as well as a day of hands- on shooting sessions. The weekend will kick off with a presentation and reception of Turnley’s life’s work from over 90 countries around the world.

Aside from his career in photography, Peter Turnley has vast experience teaching workshops and will discuss and give participants important tips on how to overcome timidity and anxiety photographing people.
