Recently, Cockrell has been photographing Placerville, mostly at night, to document how the town looks before the upcoming makeover.
While some of the buildings have faded and have peeling paint, and definitely could use a sprucing up, Cockrell feels that there is also something attractive about the current rustic feel of the town.
Cockrell also has been offering very early Sunday morning photography workshops where he guides the participants through his style of architectural photography and then demonstrates his post-processing techniques at his studio using several of each participant’s images.
Early risers on Sunday morning may see Cockrell and a group of photographers with tripods standing in the middle of Main Street to capture the unique scenes.
For those interested in participating in one of the early morning photographic outings contact Cockrell at [email protected]
He also offers half-day classroom photography workshops and several other local field photography workshops.
