David has led photography workshops for over 10 years, helping participants expand their photographic potential. Workshops have ranged from half day outings to week-long immersive experiences. David has also led groups in larger photography projects like the 2012 Chatham Conservation Partnership workshop and exhibit.

“Spending a day with David Blevins is a thrilling eye-opener. His thoughtful, kind, generous and almost spiritual mentoring style enabled us to ask dumb questions, take photographic risks, expand our comfort zone, and actually end up taking great pictures. Not only did I manage to create some extraordinary (for me) images, I also learned the many steps that take one from an idea of a picture to actually acquiring it."
- Don Adams, participant in the 2012 Bald Head Island Photography Workshop

In addition to the public workshops listed below, David also offers private workshops for individuals or groups. The standard rate is $500/day plus travel expenses. Contact David to arrange a workshop tailored to your interests.

Chatham County Nature Photography Workshop

March 21, 2015

registration is closed

Join David Blevins on the second day of spring (March 21, 2015) for a nature photography workshop in eastern Chatham County, North Carolina.

We will create images in the field together from dawn to mid-day, and we will spend the afternoon in a classroom at Chatham County Community College reviewing our results and working on image processing.

During the field portion of the day, David will work with you to help improve your photography by showing you how to take control of your camera and discussing the the art of seeing. During the classroom portion of the day, David will review your images and work through image processing examples.

This workshop is open to photographers of all skill levels. Bring your own camera and your camera’s instructions if you have any doubts about how to operate your camera. A tripod is recommended if you have one, but is not essential. Pack a lunch, wear sturdy shoes, and bring sunscreen and anything else that will help you remain comfortable during a morning of photography outdoors.

Registration is limited to six participants. You will recieve additional information like meeting location and time after your registration is complete.
