Today, everyone is a photographer. We all carry iPhones or smart devices that have no trouble capturing sharp clear pictures. The average amateur will take their camera to the top of a hill and capture a picture of the beautiful scene below them. They will later show that picture to a friend while saying, “The picture doesn’t do it justice.” It is not the camera that failed the picture, but the photographer.
An accidental photographer might take 1000 images. Three of those images could be incredible. They are indeed excellent images, but the photographer does not know how they got them or how to repeat them.
Our camera is not a magic box. We need to learn to see the world the way our camera sees, so that we can use it to its best advantage. To take great pictures, we need to have a vision and know how to interpret LIGHT, COMPOSITION, and TECHNIQUE in the camera to achieve that vision.

I’ve been teaching photo workshops for over 15 years now and nothing gives me more pleasure than being able to help others overcome their hurdles in photography and advance to that next level. I love being able to bring others to some of my favorite locations that I visit year after year and to be able to share that part of the experience that makes outdoor photography such an amazing adventure. Hope to see you soon!
My digital photography classes are aimed at people who don’t like to read camera manuals or don’t want to sit at a computer to learn digital photography. Sometimes you may have a particular problem that you can’t seem to find or understand the answer to. Maybe you aren’t happy with your photographs in general and could use some encouragement and positive criticism. In these cases, nothing can replace individual tuition.
