Important Dates

 Clayton Spangler, Owner of Clayton Spangler Photographic Design will lead the session that cater to shutterbugs of all ages, all skill levels, and having diverse interests. His goal during this is to show you how to create compelling photography that tells the story of your travels through YOUR visual point of view. What you learn from Clayton's 30+ years as a professional photographer will help you achieve better photographs by passing on the skills he's acquired over his career. His approach is very hands-on, and we're sure you'll enjoy the learning experience. In addition to his busy life as a professional photographer, Clayton is currently the Photography Editor for Wonderful West Virginia Magazine as well. “I’ve been really fortunate to be able to travel, see and meet so many wonderful people, photography has given me access to places and things I wouldn’t have gotten to see otherwise”, Clayton says, and “I can’t imagine doing anything else.” In addition to the workshop sessions, there will be informational get-togethers and a farewell slide show on the last evening.  Workshop Cost is $732.00
