Hey guys! I am a children's photographer in Florida (http://www.ashleyritaphotography.com/) and have recently started offering workshops for photogs who are just starting out.
The only necessary item needed to take the courses is an SLR camera. :)
Check out http://ashleyritaphotolove.blogspot.com/2012/11/sugar-snap-photography-now-offering.html for all the info about the classes.
I hope to work with you guys soon!
