Providing photography learning
and guide services


Welcome and thank you for visiting my list of photography workshops. These are "field workshop/tours" where chasing light is the imperative. My goal is to first 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 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!

Groups are limited to only 6 participants ensuring a quality and relaxed experience. With less pressure you have more time for your artistic creativity.
