You’ve got a digital camera, or perhaps you take a lot of photos with your iPhone. But maybe your photos don’t turn out as well as you thought they would. I can help. Sign up for one of the classes I’m teaching this summer and learn to take control of your camera and make better photos.
In all of my classes I combine examples I’ve shot, personal hands-on instruction, a non-intimidating way to help you understand the technical stuff, and ideas to explode your creativity. Classes usually end with a gentle group critique where you’ll share a few of your favorite images from the field session and I’ll make comments about what’s you did well and how you can make your photography even better.
One of my students last year wrote this on their evaluation form:
This class was one of the most valuable and well taught I have ever taken. The instructor’s presentation was professional, and he also made sure to work with each individual to improve their knowledge and photographic capability. Best of all, he was extremely skilled at critiquing our work while giving encouragement and honest appraisal. In spite of the class members’ differing levels of skill and knowledge, the instructor’s general remarks were useful to all and his private encouragement appropriate to the level of the student. I learned a lot that I will continue to use and hope there will be a follow-on.

All the photos on this page were made with my iPhone and processed with apps on the phone before I shared them with my friends on Facebook. Send me a friend request if you’re on Facebook and you’ll see more fun photos (lots of plants, since I am a bit of a plant geek).
