Photography education made
When you learn photography with me, my goal is to create a nurturing environment where your skills grow and creativity flourishes. I'll work with you on the technical aspects of photography, composition, and storytelling. But it doesn't stop there. The true magic lies in igniting your own creative spark and the exhilaration of exploring those new horizons.
My teaching of nature and landscape photography is distinguished by a holistic approach that combines technical expertise, artistic vision, and a deep reverence for the natural world. I foster a supportive and inclusive learning environment, empowering students to explore their creative potential while developing a solid foundation in technical skills. Beyond the mechanics of photography, I nurture their unique visual voice and storytelling abilities, encouraging a connection between art and nature.
With personalized instruction, practical assignments, and constructive feedback, I guide students on a transformative journey of growth and self-discovery. I emphasize observation, patience, and mindfulness in capturing nature's essence. But what truly sets me apart is my passion for nature and commitment to environmental stewardship. I desire to create and teach photographers how to create images that raise awareness and foster appreciation for our planet.
I offer more than technical guidance; I cultivate creativity, storytelling, and environmental consciousness. By forging a deeper connection with nature, we can learn to create images that resonate. By harmonizing art and nature, we create purposeful and impactful photographs that contribute to the preservation and appreciation of our natural environment.
Join me, along with photography legends Blake Rudis, Alex Noriega, and Greg Benz this winter season. I'll be teaching "Photography Workflow Revolution: Unlocking Lightroom Classic's Full Potential" where I'll spill the secrets to efficiently organize and streamline your processing workflow.
Private Field Sessions
I offer a select number of private photography workshops each year. Photographers will find immense value in these experiences since they are personalized guidance, tailored to individual needs and goals. Whether it's honing composition, mastering light, or capturing unique perspectives, I foster an environment to photograph together and refine the craft in real-time. This personalized experience enables photographers to accelerate their learning, overcome challenges, and capture images creatively and with confidence.
A virtual photography mentoring session with me is a powerful catalyst for propelling your growth as a photographer. In these personalized 60 minute Zoom sessions, we delve deeply into the specific focus area of your choice. It's a dedicated space where your questions find answers, your images receive insightful feedback, your methods receive expert guidance, and you uncover hidden gems of knowledge you never knew existed.
How to Organize Photos in Lightroom
My online course provides a comprehensive and efficient system that streamlines your workflow, saves valuable time, and enhances your Lightroom experience. With my guidance, you gain practical skills and strategies to effectively manage your growing image library, find photos fast, and create a productive workflow. Avoid the hours spent searching for your photos and instead focus more time immersed in nature with your camera.
The Out of Grand Teton Conference includes two online sessions (one before and one after the conference), extensive photography time in Grand Teton National Park, group conference sessions, and informal time with the team of instructors and other attendees. Out of Chicago events are designed to provide a fun, encouraging, and immersive environment in which you can explore your creativity, experiment with new ideas, build your technical skills, create a portfolio of photographs you love, and build your photographic community.
