Join photographer Ibarionex Perello and explore locations and events in Southern California. Discover iconic and photogenic locations and events, while learning how to improve your photographic skills. 

You’ll explore distinct communities such as Downtown Los Angeles, Venice Beach, East Los Angeles, San Diego, Hollywood and Santa Monica. You will also attend cultural festivals and events that provide a wealth of opportunities for great photographs including portraits, urban and natural landscapes, street photography, still lifes, food photography and much more.


Because each session is limited to a small size of 4-5 students, you will enjoy a level of personal attention not available in larger photographic workshops. This will allow you regardless of your skill level to benefit both in experience and and insightful and personal feedback. 

The limited size of each session along with an emphasis on working in the field making photographs allows ample time for you to make photographs under Ibarionex’s personal guidance. You will have the benefit of carefully observing Ibarionex as he walks the group through his personal process for creating photographs. 

You will learn:

  • How to setup your camera for best results

  • How to observe and use light and shadow

  • How to carefully compose photograph

  • How to approach and photograph strangers

  • How to tell a story in a series of photograph

  • How to create striking black and white and color images

  • The secrets of allowing a scene to evolve and play out into a great photograph

Sessions will be scheduled to provide the best opportunities for the best photographs including lighting, activity level and access. They are each scheduled for between 5-6 hours. 


Because spaces are limited it is recommended that you book a spot as early as possible. Once an event is booked, you will be placed on a waiting list should cancellations occur. 

The fee for each session is $325.00 and does not include entrance fees for some cultural events. There will be a 50% fee for cancellations made within 10 days of the session.
