      Since we would love to focus on delivering our promise, we will not provide transportation during the workshop due to logistics complexity. We, therefore, request all participants to plan earlier and suggest liaising with others for carpooling deals. Also, since we expect to have a multi-diverse group of film and digital photography attending the workshop, we will not provide the films. You can plan to carry an average of 20-35 rolls for use at the Cannon beach photography. 

      Participants will be provided with lunch, dinner and snacks at no extra cost. We will also have a full kitchen available for use to all. 

      Cannon Beach has a brilliant allure that is perfect for photography, in rain or sunshine. Come prepared to have fun in either a cold or warm weather.
