Western NC, Fall Tech Series. 2024
Western NC, Fall Foliage Tech Workshop
Oct, 9-12, 2024 [4 days]
Oct 13-14 Video Seminar [optional 2 day]
I am proud to offer this series designed to enhance both your technical ability and visual sense. The STL NC Workshop is for those photographers who wish to take their imagery to the next level. This series will consist of both in field sessions and comprehensive classroom instruction.
Join Charles (Chas) Glatzer M.Photog, Canon EOL this Fall in the beautiful mountains of western NC. The Blue Ridge Parkway with spectacular foliage views above 5,000 ft are nearby. The area hosts more waterfalls than any other county in the US, with stunning rivers, farm fields, and nearby Pisgah National Forest and State forest lands. The quaint town Brevard is only minutes away from our hotel. Hendersonville is also close by, with a beautiful main street offering excellent dining and shopping opportunities for all.
This will be primarily an all day in the field workshop to include Catalooche for rutting elk, sunrise/sunset and twilight milkyway/star vistas from atop the Blue Ridge Parkway, with vists to the areas stunning waterfalls, rivers, and more. A classroom is reserved each day for mid-day technical and postproduction instruction, and/or use in case of inclement weather. This is one you will not want to miss!
For anyone wanting to hone their photographic skills, Shoot the Light’s Workshops are a must. Thanks Chas for a great workshop. 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 at the STL Workshop! 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. 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.

The goal of the STL Workshops are to provide you, the photographer, with tools that will enable you to capture a more satisfying image, whatever your vision! Yes, they are all about you and improving your fundamental knowledge and skills. Its not about Chas Glatzer. Chas brings his knowledge and skills as a photographer and naturalist gained over 34 years of diverse experience and offers it to you in a friendly, amusing, and memorable fashion. Chas and his team mentor you constantly, and clearly delight in your achievements. They are there to teach, and it doesn’t matter whether you are a participant, or just another photographer on the boardwalk struggling with your gear, you will get the same kind of patient attention. This old fart learned so much in those four days he was exhausted. But, it was a wonderful experience. Thank you Chas.
I want to let you know the impact you have had on my life, photography is a passion for me, I spend a huge amount of my spare time with my camera and after your workshop my skill level has been elevated to a point I am ecstatic with. Your workshop was the 4th I had taken all with different professional photographers and although I learned something from each professional, I also learned that not all workshops are the same and not all professionals have the ability to teach. Now in fairness to those other workshops, I have taken something different from each one; however, your workshop was head and shoulders above all others I have attended. I made huge progress in such a short period of time and above all it was apparent you care about why people are there.
