New to photography? Stuck in “Auto” mode? Maybe you just can’t seem to get your pictures to look right? Come join professional photographer Andrew Pielage for his Introduction to Photography Workshop. Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece Taliesin and the surrounding estate will be the backdrop for the weekend photographic journey. During the session, you will learn the tools you need to take control of your camera, including aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. Learning the rules of composition and consideration of light and shadow will help participants continue to grow in their creativity and skill at photography.

Participants provide their own fully manual camera/lenses, tripod, flashlight or headlamp, good walking shoes.


Friday: 5:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Saturday: 5:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. (light breakfast & lunch served)
Sunday: 5:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. (light breakfast & lunch served)


COVID-19 health and safety protocols meeting or exceeding local, state, and federal guidelines will be followed throughout the weekend. Masks covering the face and nose will be required for all participants and staff. Hand sanitizing stations will be located throughout the estate. Classroom instruction will now be held in the Hillside Drafting Studio, allowing for social distancing to be practiced in both interior and exterior spaces.

You must be symptom-free in order to participate.

Should a resurgence of COVID-19 make in-person gatherings once again unsafe, Taliesin Preservation reserves the right to cancel the event out of an abundance of caution.  In the unfortunate event this occurs, guests will be notified in advance and offered a full refund to the original payment method.
