Upcoming Workshops

No workshops currently scheduled

Have you admired the architecture, landscaping, design and lighting of the AT&T Performing Arts Center and the Winspear? Have you wanted to be able to photograph inside & out and maybe see what the backstage area is like at one of the premiere performance halls in the world? So have we!

Through special arrangement we’ve gotten permission to bring a small group of photographers through the Winspear to shoot the public and backstage areas. We’ll spend the morning shooting and then meet back at DCP to download, edit and share everyone’s photos.

If you’ve attended a show at the Winspear you know what an exciting and beautiful space it is. Comparable in scale to the  Lincoln Center in NY and the Kennedy Center in D.C., it’s a world class venue with modern, inspiring and highly photogenic architecture and light. Visiting and photographing it when it’s empty is a unique experience.

  • Cost per person is $220 early registration, $250 late registration.
  • We will meet at 9:00am at the Winspear Opera House at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.
  • After shooting we’ll gather for lunch (cost not included).
  • After lunch we’ll meet back at DCP to download, edit and share our photos.
  • The workshop will end by 5pm.
  • Advance registration and payment is required.
  • Maximum number of students is 12, minimum number to make a class is 6.
  • Please note cost of lunch and parking in the Arts District is not included in workshop registration fee.
  • Photographs taken inside the building are for your personal, artistic use and enjoyment only and may not be used commercially without the prior written permission of ATTPAC.

  • A digital camera (any type!) with a full battery, plenty of memory card space and a basic understanding of how to take pictures. Taking one of our evening classes or beginner DSLR workshop first would be helpful but not necessary.
  • Any lenses or accessories you want to use.
  • An umbrella if it looks like rain.
  • A laptop with a recent version of Lightroom loaded.  You should have a basic understanding of how to get images into Lightroom  and taking the Lightroom 101 and/or 102 class first can be helpful. You could also spend some time viewing a few of the many free online tutorials for getting started with Lightroom. Try YouTube, the Adobe site or Lynda.com.
