  • Why should I choose a 319 Photography UNIQUE / Workshop?
    Tony Hebert, Lead Photographer, Lead Instructor, and owner of 319 Photography, has developed a workshop curriculum based on his twenty-five year career as a photographer – the past fifteen years spent as a professional photographer in the industry. Tony has assembled a small team that is just as passionate about photography and teaching others as he is. Tony and his team have poured their heart and souls into building these UNIQUE / Workshops and we want to share our passion with you! Our goal is to provide YOU with an amazing experience and to teach YOU techniques that will allow you to capture amazing astro-landscape images. In short, all of our workshops are about YOU, not us. Tony and his associate instructors may have their camera gear with them during in-field shooting portions of a workshop, but they will not be shooting alongside you; rather, their camera’s stay in their bags and they pay attention to YOU! Also, we have a focused classroom curriculum that we teach during our workshops that is designed to provide you with skills ranging from camera operations to post-processing techniques using software such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, Starry Landscape Stacker, and Sequator. We focus on your experience and education during a 319 Photography UNIQUE / Workshop, but it doesn’t stop there! We are building a growing community of 319 Photography UNIQUE / Workshop alumni and we offer continued support to alumni well after they complete a workshop!
  • What is included in my tuition fee?
    Your 319 Photography UNIQUE / Workshops tuition fee covers the time and talent of Tony and his associate instructors, personalized in-field instruction, guide service through the workshop location, in-depth classroom instruction including post-processing skills, classroom materials, and continued support after the workshop is over! Depending on the workshop, your tuition may also cover lodging and meals. Check the description page of the workshop that you are interested in! If you have questions, feel free to email Tony at
  • What is NOT included in my tuition fee?
    Unless otherwise expressly noted, your 319 Photography UNIQUE / Workshop tuition fee DOES NOT cover your travel to the workshop destination, travel insurance, equipment insurance, alcohol, incidentals, or anything not expressly listed on the workshop description page as "Included". Depending on the workshop, your tuition may or may not cover lodging, meals, or transportation during the workshop. If this is the case, it will be expressly noted in the workshop description page. For some workshops, your tuition may only cover 1 or 2 meals a day. If this is the case, your tuition will not cover meals or snacks outside of that. Please check the description page of the workshop you are interested in.
  • What is the difference between a "Photo Tour" and a "Photography Workshop"?"
    On a Photo Tour, tour guides generally take people to several areas for short amounts of time and there is no real instruction offered by the guides, if any at all. Photo Tours are often fast paced and give participants only minimal time in certain areas. A 319 Photography UNIQUE Photography Workshop is an immersive educational experience driven by passionate instructors. Our goal is to teach and inspire our workshop participants and always put their needs first.

  • What is the student to instructor ratio?
    At all workshops, there will be a minimum of two instructors. With each workshop capped at 10 participants, the student to instructor ratio will be at least one instructor to five students.

  • Can my spouse / significant other / family member / travel companion attend?
    For domestic, continental United States based workshops, the answer is absolutely yes! We understand that a lot of people do not enjoy traveling alone and outside of a meal supplement, we do not believe in charging outrages supplemental fees for guests. Unfortunately, due to logistics and other necessary commitments required for non-continental United States and/or International based workshops, if you wish a guest to attend they will have to reserve a space at full fare for that given workshop That said, we do have a few rules regarding guests: Guests may not join in the classroom portions of a 319 Photography UNIQUE / Workshop. Guests may not operate a camera during in-field shooting during a 319 Photography UNIQUE / Workshop. Guests must stay in the same room as the primary workshop student (if lodging space is available and they desire their own room, we will charge a supplement to cover the extra lodging room). For workshops where we provide transportation during the workshop: If room is limited in our transportation vehicles, guests may have to follow us in their own vehicles during in-field portions. Guests are more than welcome to accompany you during in-field shooting and enjoy the scenery and stunning views. Guests will be expected to sign appropriate liability waivers and should understand that our attention will be focused on workshop participants during the workshop. **Additional fees may apply for guests in regards to lodging and meals for workshops that provide lodging and meals. This will be disclosed up front and know prior to your registration for a workshop.
  • What happens if the weather is bad?
    The weather is always something to consider when it comes to outdoor photography and, unfortunately, the weather is one thing that we cannot control! That said, unexpected or inconvenient weather is not grounds for us to cancel a workshop. Even though some of our workshops are astro-landscape focused, if the need arises, we will focus on other styles of landscape photography, weather photography, or nighttime photography. Some of the best photographs are captured during less-than-ideal weather! Significant or dangerous weather, however, may cause us to cancel a workshop. If we choose to cancel a workshop, we will notify all participants as soon as possible and will issue a complete refund of 319 Photography UNIQUE / Workshop tuition fees. **319 Photography is not responsible for monetary loss or fees associated with travel and hotel accommodations due to the cancellation of a workshop.
