Open Studio Series

With the advent of digital imaging, photographers have unprecedented creative control at all stages: capture, development and print. Yes, that’s right – print! Despite the ease and reach of electronic image sharing, print has never been a more vital way to present photography. At Resolve Photo, we’re passionate about print and our goal is to help you produce expressive prints of your work.

There are crucial differences between the digital part of the photography process and the physical part, pixels rendered to ink on paper. To get the best results in print, it’s important to master the move between the digital and the physical. This is a creative process, involving both artistic and technical decisions. Expressive prints don’t come from the simple push of a button.

The Resolve Photo team has mastered the digital print process, and we can help you understand what you need to make your images shine in print. Bringing photographs out of the digital black box into the real world as expressive prints is a powerful way to infuse your photography with life.

If you’d like to learn more about developing your photographs into the best prints they can be, join us in the Open Studio Series. In these workshops, we open the Resolve Photo print studio for in-depth coverage of essential topics of theory and practice.








“A photograph that has not been shared or at least printed is almost an unexistent photograph, is almost an untaken picture.”
— Sergio Garibay

Improving Your Prints by Printing

If you’re interested in a topic and don’t see it listed here, contact us and ask. We may be able to put something together to meet your area of interest. If it doesn’t work as a small group workshop session, ask us instead about booking a one–on–one consultation at the Resolve Photo print studio, or at your own location.

Pricing

We offer one-on-one consults with someone from the Resolve Photo team at a rate of $100/hr. We also offer a test strip printing service at a fee of $20 per test strip. Compared to these standard offerings, our Open Studio Series offers the opportunity to improve your printing expertise in a small group format at a cost reduction of more than 50%.

$125: Each theory session: 3 hours of studio time (seminar & examples)

$200: Each practice session: 3 hours of workshop time (including printing supplies)

Schedule

You can register for one or more theory sessions, or just for a practice session, or any combination. Some attendees come only for the theory. Others skip the theory and come more than once for the hands-on practice. You can pick the combination that’s right for where you’re at and your needs.

Contact us for more information on upcoming classes.

Registration

Registration is limited to 3–4 participants per session. We will hold a scheduled event even if only one person has signed up.
