Recently awarded a 2010 Hot One Award from Professional Photographer magazine, Bootcamp, taught by renowned photographer Kevin Kubota, is a 5-day hands-on workshop for professional photographers designed to supply all of the technical know-how to run a successful digital portrait/wedding studio; at the same time, it encourages continued development of a photographer’s unique style and creativity.

“If a photographer is just making the transition to digital or needs to move their existing digital system into full-efficient swing, the Digital Photography Bootcamp provides one of the best investments they can make for their photography career,” said Kevin Kubota, Idea Man of Kubota Image Tools. “Bootcamp is designed to take photographers from start to finish and include everything in-between. In addition to having an action-packed schedule, we include ample time to answer every burning question. This workshop is loaded with techno, creative, and artistic fun.”

A few of the many topics that are covered during Bootcamp include:

  1. The RAW shoot and camera and subject techniques

  5. Printing and tips and techniques to get the best prints
  6. Presentation and creating slideshows and DVDs

No two Bootcamps are the same, that’s why many “bootcampers” attend over and over again! Space is limited to 21 participants to offer personalized, hands-on training. Bootcamp is the only workshop of its kind that has a money-back guarantee because Kubota Image Tools is confident that the experience will significantly improve the workflow of beginning/intermediate digital photographers. Interested photographers can find additional information about Bootcamp at www.kubotaimagetools.com/workshops.html

Here’s what some past bootcampers have to say about their experience:
