$1899 (CPS Discount $100)


Canon Explorer of Light Rick Sammon has been photographing and leading photo workshops in Miami, Florida for 10 years. He can’t wait to show you how to capture the colors and magic of Miami. This is principally a digital start-to-finish photo workshop. You will learn how to capture the best possible in-camera image, process that image to the fullest, and walk away with a professional quality print. 

We’ll be based at The Hotel of South Beach, just minutes away from the beach and Art Deco hotels. We’ll shoot in and around South Beach, and we will also photograph at Vizcaya and Wynwood Walls. 


South Beach and surrounding locations include:

  • Historical Art Deco hotels

  • Nighttime scenes with streaking lights

  • Sunrises at the beach, Art Deco lifeguard stands
