Saturday October 21 2017 - The Inn and Spa at Cedar Falls | Hocking Hills, Ohio
October in the Hocking Hills of Southeastern Ohio can be spectacular. Join Pro Photographer and Photography Instructor Jim Crotty as he leads this group workshop along his favorite trails and to the best locations for fall landscape photography in Hocking Hills State Park, including the new trail to Whispering Cave. For eight years Jim has been leading and teaching photography workshops in this, the home of his love for nature and landscape photography. Jim's workshops are a good balance of both classroom and field instruction (with a bit more emphasis put on field instruction).
From the technical to the artistic vision, Jim helps photographers of all levels of skill and experience explore their creative vision and learn to master the camera and lenses for results that stand-out from the mere snapshop. Jim brings out the artist in all of his workshop students in a way that is fun and rewarding. This particular workshop Jim will be demonstrating and teaching best techniques for fall landscape imagery as well as macro/close-up subjects found along the breathtaking trails and woods of Ohio's legendary Hocking Hills.
The base location is the beautiful and historic Inn and Spa at Cedar Falls, centrally located within Hocking Hills State Park. The classroom portions of the program will be held in the Gathering Space conference facility at The Inn. Fee includes a gourmet lunch prepared exclusively for the group by the outstanding dining staff as well as all handout materials. Lodging and transportation is not included although once the workshop begins car pooling is organized for transportation to and from the field locations.
Come join this exciting opportunity to become fully immersed in the beauty of autumn in Ohio's most scenic location and share in the passion and fun of nature and landscape photography with Jim Crotty.

Presentations to Schools, Clubs and Corporate Organizations
I've presented my work and my creative vision to various groups over the last four years, including many schools, camera clubs and professional organizations. I have a very relaxed style, incorporating a fair amount of story telling about my many experiences photographing in the field and for a wide variety of clients as well as what it took to overcome some personal obstacles and challenges to finally being on the right path with my life and my artistic vision.
I like to have fun with my presentations, but most important of all, I like to inspire and motivate my audience to follow their own dreams and goals in life as well as develop and integrate creative vision in all that they do. Obviously my presentations are geared toward the showing of my photographic images. I use select photographs, via both large format, mounted prints as well as audio-visual digital slide presentations through a MacBook Pro and projector, that best illustrate a particular photographic technique as well as those that communicate my unique creative vision and approach toward life.
I adjust my presentation style and material according to the select audience I'm scheduled to speak to, such as "how I got involved with photography" for school groups or "Finding the Light: More Than Just a Photographer" for social and corporate organizations.
Fees for presentations are based on intended audience, time required, travel and hand-out materials. Fees can vary based on whether the organization is a non-profit or profit. I retain the right to donate presentation time to select non-profit and educational organizations. Please call 937-477-9324 or email to learn more about how my presentations can enhance your classroom or organizational meeting. Please schedule at least three months in advance.
