Not all that long ago, flying with camera gear to a location for a shoot was fairly painless and could even be considered fun most of the time. Flash a business card or a photo organization membership card, and you were easily able to skirt the baggage limits. Slip the curbside baggage handler a $20 bill, and you could get all the bags you wanted on for free. Sadly, those days have disappeared with the advent of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), baggage fees and oversold flights.

(note: This is the original long version that I wrote on the plane coming home from the workshop. A shorter version has been published elsewhere. I’m posting it here in it’s entirety in hopes that you’ll get the full experience of what it was like to spend 3 days learning from the Master)
What would it take to get you out of the house the day after Christmas, fight the crowds at the airports and fly to LA? Would a chance to attend a 3 day HDslr workshop do it? Would you pay $1,200.00 plus expenses for the privilege? Would it matter if the instructor was Gale Tattersall the DP of House MD and the first person to use all HDslrs to film an entire episode of a major network show? Well for 15 emerging and Pro photographers the answer was a definite YES.
