Photographer Bill Braden, and Sundog Adventures owner, Richard McIntosh, launched the partnership and workshops during the winter of 2018. Due to positive response and request to continue the workshops they have decided to run regularly scheduled workshops each Tuesday and Friday evening until the end of October which will continue again in December.
