Free Event: Walkabout Journey – June 10

Walkabout Journey
San Mateo County Art Fair
With Richard Dischler Photo Workshop (RDPW)

Edward Weston stated, “If you can see your feet, you can see a photograph.” If you really open your eyes and observe your surroundings, you will discover exciting and unique images right where you walk.

We invite you to experience a Walkabout adventure at the San Mateo County Arts Fair during a one-day workshop. Bring one camera—or a cell phone—and a healthy dose of enthusiasm and curiosity.

Richard Dischler will serve as a guide, and other members of the original RDPW will be available for one-on-one coaching. Afterward, there will be an image review and critique.

So come have some fun, and see where this journey takes you.
Saturday June 10, 10:30 AM, San Mateo County Fair
