About My Workshops
My workshops are about teaching you to use
the tools you have to uncover and nurture your personal vision.
Whether you're a beginner or experienced photographer, you can
expect to receive something of value from the experience, whether
it's a more complete understanding of your equipment, techniques
that assist you in seeing things in new ways, or simply a
rekindling of your excitement to go out into the world with camera
My workshops are based on what I call The
Intimate ImageTM. Regardless of the workshop venue, I will
strike a balance between the technical and creative, based on the
needs of the group I'm working with. I'll create an atmosphere
that is friendly, supportive and informal, where you can explore
without anxiety. Sometimes we'll use examples from my work to get
everyone in the flow, but we'll use your work and that of other
participants to build on the concepts that I'll be introducing.
I'll also introduce you to some of the many exercises that I've
developed over the years to help you break through the barriers to
seeing and expressing your intimate self.
On a related
note, it is my policy not to photograph for my own purposes during
my workshops. I do this so that my attention is on you, not my own
to see some of the comments I've received about my workshops.
Individual and Private Group
I am frequently asked about
one-on-one as well as private group instruction. I am happy to
propose a plan based on a discussion of your needs. Please don't
hesitate to call and tell me what you have in mind.
One of the things I enjoy most is helping people get the most
out of their talent. One way of accomplishing this is to sit down
with work you've done, make an assessment of your abilities, and
have a supportive, constructive discussion of steps you can take
to go even further. If you think a review of your work would be
helpful, please give me a call to see what we can do.
