From the Heart to the Lens Workshop: Photographing Camellias at Bok Tower Gardens
I will be holding a Camilla Photography Workshop at Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales, Florida, January 13, 14, 15 of 2020 and January 21, 22, 23 of 2020. Each day we will photograph from 9:00 AM to Noon and 1:15 PM to 4:15 PM. There are a variety of different Camellias and one day is just not enough to aptly capture their beauty. It is not mandatory to attend the Workshop each day, you may choose one, two or two-and-a-half days of attendance.
I will be teaching “best practices” for capturing these amazing flowers with a variety of different lenses along with elements of photography like f/stop, depth-of-field, shoot-thru, in-camera effects as well as using reflectors/diffusers and photo umbrellas. You will also have the opportunity to use a Lensbaby lens during the afternoon shoot if you so desire.
Lunch will be at the Bok Tower Gardens Cafeteria. You will have the opportunity to pre-order your lunch so that the food will be ready when we arrive, giving us ample time to relax and enjoy each other’s company.
Our Wednesday shoot will conclude at Noon; however, there is an option to signup for personal one-on-one time with me in the afternoon. The time can be spent photographing together or working on your images in the computer.
Evening Photo Review
On Monday and Tuesday evening, I will spend time with each attendee reviewing 10 images of their choice. This will also help me to pinpoint areas where you may need a little extra help if you will be attending the Workshop the next day.
When you sign-up you will be able to choose the day(s) you want to attend. The full day Workshop sessions are $175 and the Wednesday half-day session is $87.50. The choice is yours and I encourage you to choose what fits best with your comfort level and budget. There is a fee to enter Bok Towers Garden and more information on by the end of October. Since the Workshop is being held Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, I am trying to workout a discounted admission fee.
Payment in full is required upon sign-up to ensure your participation in this Photography Workshop. I do have a cancellation policy: if you must cancel, I will do my best to find a replacement for you. If I am able to find a replacement, your fee will be refunded less a $50 administration expense. If this Workshop is cancelled for any reason, you will receive 100% of your fees paid.

Hotels and Other Costs
Hotels in Orlando are in high demand no matter what time of year you visit. I have shopped diligently and found 3 different, highly rated hotels ranging from $125 – $149 per night plus tax and they are all centrally located near I-4 and Disney. These prices will not last so if you are interested in this trip, please book now and let me know that you will need hotel accommodations. You will want to arrive the night before the Workshop you will be attending.
The travel time to Bok Tower is approximately 40 minutes from just about anywhere in Orlando. If you prefer not to drive your vehicle, or if you will not have a vehicle, you are welcome to travel with my Team and I in our van. The cost is $10/day to van pool with us.
If you are flying, you will want to make arrangements to arrive/depart Orlando International Airport (MCO). Car rental is available at the airport or we can make arrangements to pick you up.
Please remember that hotel, transportation, admission into Bok Tower Gardens, food and other personal spending is not included in the cost of the Workshop.
