Tiger's Eyes



Providing photography learning & guide services


These are "field workshop/tours" where chasing light is the imperative. My first goal is to get you to the best locations at the best times to capture stunning images and second to assist you in the techniques required to get them. Since the best light is typically in the morning or afternoon, and depending on the workshop, we are often up well before sunrise and shoot until after sunset. During break times we will gather and review our images and I will offer critique and suggestions for editing. Also, post workshop image review, critique and editing techniques are included with my workshops.

If you'd like to learn how its done or just need a guide to safely get you there and back you should definitely contact me!
