Update: All regular and auditing seats are full. The next registration will be held on February 21st, 2011 at 6pm pacific time for a class that starts in April.
And I used a random number generator to pick the winner of an auditing seat in The Photographers' Workshop...Congrats Liz, I just emailed you!
I'm going to give away an auditing spot in my next workshop so if you're interested, keep reading...
Registration for the next Photographers' Workshop starts tonight (Monday, Nov. 1st) at 6pm Pacific time. (I'm in Oregon if you need to use a time converter.)
I've kept everyone on the wait list updated but never managed to get any info. posted about it here. (So I apologize for posting this just a couple of hours before registration.)
Registration is for a class starting on January 24th, 2011 and you need to be on the wait list in order to register for the class. (You can get on the wait list here.)
I'm totally revamping the website and my branding in the next few months so I'm really excited about this January 2011 class!!!
I have no way of knowing how quickly the class will fill up but in the past, classes have filled up within a matter of minutes. So if you're planning on registering, be sure to log in at exactly 6pm Pacific time (not early because if you keep refreshing the page prior to 6pm Pacific time, you will be blocked from the site - something the web guy had to implement to prevent the site from crashing) and you have to type quickly.
You can register as a 'regular student' or as an 'auditor'. (The ONLY difference between a 'regular student' and an 'auditor' is that I do NOT evaluate assignments or photo critiques for auditing students.)
The benefit to registering at a 'regular student' is that I provide written evaluations for your assignments and photo critiques. ($395)
The benefit to registering as an 'auditor' is that you can work at your own pace ($245) and if you decide that you want me to evaluate your work anytime after you have completed the class, you can schedule a telephone consult with me ($150 per hour) and as you can see the price to audit + the price of a telephone consult is the same price you would have paid to register as a 'regular' student.
So the decision to register as a 'regular student' or as an 'auditor' should just be based on how much time you have to devote to the class. If you feel like you can devote 5+ hours a week to the class, then I'd recommend registering as a regular student. However, if you want to work at your own pace, I'd recommend registering as an auditor.
Registration will remain open until both the 'regular seats' and the 'auditing seats' fill up.
I'm working hard to get my priorities in order and because of that, I'm taking fewer students than I've taken in the past and am going to teach fewer classes also (Three classes per year rather than four.) and will be limiting the number of auditing students. (Since auditing students can post questions on the Q&A board, I have to limit the number of auditors.) I know this makes it harder to get into the classes, but please know that I'm going to keep teaching these classes for a long time...
In addition to the January 2011 class, I'll also be teaching a class in April and another in July.
If you'd like to enter to win an auditing spot in the class, just post a comment (or a question if you have one) and I'll draw the winner on Wednesday, Nov. 3rd. (If you register as an auditor during registration and then happen to be the winner, I will refund you the amount you paid during registration or you can give the spot away to a friend.)
And if you email me with any registration questions tonight or tomorrow, please be patient with my response since registration day is usually crazy for me.
And becaue I hate to post without a photo, I'll leave you with a shot I took of Annie the other night. (She won a coloring contest at Bella Union so we went there to claim her free pizza.)
