Erik hosts only one or two Milky Way workshops per year. Why? Simply put, he's a working pro and Has limited time to dedicate to these special small-group experiences. However, he knows it's the right thing for those ready to go beyond Print education, online training, or Photo Tours, so he dedicates one or two weeks a year to providing this type of Hands-on immersive workshop training sessions.
