2020 Photography Workshops

1×1 Photo Workshops

Group workshops are fantastic and offer a great value and even greater experience shooting with others as well as seeing how others “see” a scene during image reviews.  Plus there is always lots of teaching from me during the workshop to those who want to learn.

If you want to supercharge your learning and elevate your skills I’d recommend considering a 1×1 session with me.  I will tailor the experience to what your goals are and work exclusively with you in the field to elevate your skills. We will also do an image review and critique the images for further learning. If you want to further discuss image processing and workflow, I can help in that space as well.

I will choose shooting locations appropriate for the goals you are trying to achieve in order to maximize the learning potential of our time together. I can be available for ½, full or multi-day 1×1 sessions.  Contact me for rates and availability
