Leica Akademie Presents: Leica SL – Two Day Intensive Workshops

Join Leica Professional Imaging Specialist, John Kreidler as he steps you through the process of understanding and using the SL to its full potential. The SL is designed to give the photographer the ability to customize the camera for any shooting situation. The goal of this program is to take the guesswork and trial and error out of figuring out how to best customize the camera for your way of shooting.

Event Program Dates & Times:

  • Washington D.C. on June 24 – 25 , 2017
  • New York on September 23 – 24, 2017
  • Boston on October 7 – 8, 2017

All events are from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. 
Tuition is $599. Enrollment is limited to 12 participants.

Topics Covered

  • Camera Layout & Menu Overview
  • Focusing Options
  • Customizing Controls
  • Setting User Profiles for specific situations.
  • WiFi Set Up
  • Understanding Video settings
  • Recommended Accessories and Product Road Map
  • Image review and Lightroom Settings

All Leica Akademie workshops provide a combination of lecture and hands-on experiential learning and the SL Intensive is no different. Following a comprehensive overview of the controls of the SL and review of recommended settings, we will put theory into practice by venturing out on a shoot in the local area, giving you the chance to acquire expert advice while in the field – expanding your skills, working techniques and confidence while shooting.


This event is ideal for current owners of the Leica SL. While you do not need to be a professional or experienced photographer to gain much from this program, you are expected to be familiar with and have a basic understanding of photographic concepts including Metering, ISO, aperture and shutter speed. This is not a photo fundamentals course.

While this workshop is geared to SL owners, we will have several SL cameras available for those considering purchasing one. We will have examples of auxiliary lenses and accessories for you to try. Also please let us know if you need to borrow a camera, so we can reserve it for you.


Coffee & lunch is included both days of the workshop, please notify us of any dietary restrictions.
