3 - 3 hour Photography Workshops

101 – Automatic to Artistic

201 – Admired to Professional

301 – Thinking Outside The Box

 
 I like meeting new students, learning what type of photography they want to improve, and helping them achieve their objectives. 
             
My classes are dedicated to helping you use your current camera, or any camera, to capture more creative and admired photos in a fun and easy to understand way.  You'll enjoy learning how to take better photos of your kids running around, playing sports, or just being themselves.  You'll learn how to take better photos while on vacation, landscape, flowers, and the fabulous memories that you want to capture, share and preserve.

All three levels of classes
are available in Group, Semi-Private or Private sessions. Classes are designed to help you improve your photography, with a better understanding of your camera, to the level you want to achieve. Private classes are dedicated specifically to your camera and to your photography needs.
