Jason Hahn is a professional nature photographer, certified Florida Master Naturalist, and an author for Photofocus Magazine. His work has been widely published in books, websites, and magazines. He is familiar with every part of photography from the beginning (a.k.a. the part where you are standing knee-deep in who-knows-what in order to get that perfect photo) to the end (the part where you are staring proudly at your photos under the glossy sheen of a magazine page), and knows all the tricks, mechanics, and hacks used in between. If you sign up for this workshop, he will give you reliable, real-world advice on how to become a published, professional photographer.
