Photo Workshops

MAPS offers free workshops in an effort to expand our members’ educational opportunities.  These workshops are presented by MAPS members who are generously donating their time and expertise.  All MAPS members in good standing can sign up for any of these workshops.

  • To make a suggestion on how we can improve this effort, please click here.
  • You don’t need to be an expert to present at a workshop, just have a willingness to share some knowledge.  If you are interested in doing so, please contact Bob Duke.

We make various handouts/notes from the workshops available to all MAPS members.  Please click here.
