The response to the Tech Series Workshops have been overwhelming, and I am proud to offer this series designed to enhance both your technical ability and visual sense. The STL Technical Workshop Series is without a doubt the definitive learning medium for those photographers who wish to take their imagery to the next level. This series will consist of both comprehensive classroom, and in field session instruction.
"For anyone wanting to hone their photographic skills, Shoot the Light’s Technical Workshop in St. Augustine, Florida is a must. Thanks Chaz for a great 4-day workshop at the Alligator Farm May 6-9. Though at the end of each day I was exhausted, the combination of classroom and field time was perfect. I have attended many photography workshops and classroom technical sessions, and I can say without a doubt this workshop was the best I have attended to date. What made it so special was your 30+ years of photographic knowledge and your down to earth ability to express that knowledge in a way that made it easy to understand and fun. Your story telling was outstanding and a highlight of each day’s classroom session. Couple that with your teaching style and I had blast. Your teaching style was practical and down to earth allowing participants to be very comfortable with you and ask questions they may have been hesitant to ask. Your approach to metering and to the use of flash took complicated subjects broke the techniques down to their lowest common denominators, allowing me to walk away at the end of the session with a new set of tools for my photo toolkit. The final day session on post processing gave me new insights on how to use Photo Shop effectively and Dave Kelly’s presentation on the use of Lightroom opened many new ideas for me to explore. Thanks for the experience!”
"What a blast we had this April at the Shoot the Light Workshop in St. Augustine! It was not only fun but the lectures and field sessions were fantastic. Thanks for the best photo learning experience of my life! I was pushed to think and photograph like never before, and my head is still spinning. With 4 instructors milling around about 20 students it was easy to get all of my questions answered. I have been telling everyone how much I learned, now all I have to do is put this knowledge to work. Margaret and I cannot wait to go on a photo workshop with you in the future."

"I recently returned from a four day Technical Workshop with Shoot the Light wow!! I had no idea how little I knew until Chas started explaining metering, flash, postproduction and visualization. We worked both in the classroom and in the field from dawn to dark and I learned more in four days than I would have on my own in years."
On the recommendation of a good photographer friend I attended a four day Technical Series Workshop conducted by "Shoot The Light" (known as
"STL") in St. Augustine FL. The format was awesome.
I knew that Charles (Chas) Glatzer was the guy running the whole affair. The 7am field shoot at the Alligator Farm brought another surprise. Chas left his
cameras behind. He was 100% dedicated to helping us students.
Before attending the workshop I thought I was a pretty good photographer. After all, some of my images have won awards. The workshop was a real eye opener. Many times during the classroom sessions we would interrupt and ask for a second explanation (sometimes even a third explanation). Chas was very patient and helpful; never a hint of arrogance or condescension. He really wanted us to grasp the concepts and become better photographers. Many concepts are simple (once you get it), but require breaking bad habits. The insights, techniques and skills I learned lifted my photography to a higher level. Now my images are much improved, and I got some great bird shots at the Alligator Farm. Chas and crew are very personable and fun to be around. The students were both accomplished and congenial. I made several new friends. The whole experience was very enjoyable.
I highly recommend STL, and look forward to joining them again sometime in the future.
