2014 Photography Workshops & Classroom Training Sessions

Last updated 5/24/2014

I teach a number of both field and classroom photography workshops throughout the year.

These are normally taught alongside my colleague Christine Hauber. Together Christine and I offer over 40 years of professional photography experience and absolutely love sharing our knowledge and love for photography with our students.

I am also available for private one-on-one training either in person or online.

Highlights: Spend a half-day photographing the changing aspen leaves during morning light in the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains just outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. These half-day photo workshops are limited to just 4 students each day. During this workshop we will work on light, composition, and lens choice while photographing the tiny details of a single leaf to a wide angle shot of the yellow tree canopy. Perfect for those in town already for the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta as Santa Fe is just a 1 hour drive from there.

Most of our workshops include a maximum of 8 students or less. Our students love small class sizes because it guarantees more one-on-one time with both of us throughout the workshop. Where you could get “lost in the crowd” at larger workshops with only one main instructor and possibly an assistant, Christine and I both provide you with the learning environment that only 2 full-time professional photographers who have been doing this for a long time could offer.

Our students range from beginners with point-and-shoot cameras to more advanced photographers with “all the gear”. We teach the basics like shutter speeds, apertures, ISO’s, histograms and depth of field. The study of light, composition and timing is emphasized.

And we teach advanced photography techniques such as multiple exposure HDR photography, stitching, texture blending, layer masks, composite photography, and more.

As fine art photographers, we emphasize personal style and artistic expression. As artists, our creativity is not limited to what a cold, mechanical device such as a camera can see. Creativity begins when we photograph the scene with great light and composition, and creativity continues with how we enhance our photographs in post production using specialized photography software such as Capture One Pro, Perfect Photo Suite, and Nik Software.

I am also available for private instruction for those who prefer complete one-on-one time or can not make one of the other scheduled workshops. Private instruction can range from topics such as marketing, website and social media, art festivals, in addition to field and classroom photography instruction.
