Welcome to my photography workshop page.  Here you will learn a bit about me and my style of teaching, what you can expect to learn, my rates for both individual and group workshops, and more.

 

My background in teaching photography workshops:

    I started teaching at the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival in 1993, and have returned to teach there nearly every year since. I also have taught workshops for Colorado Free University (CFU out of Denver/Boulder) and by private request over the years.

 

Here are the three main courses/classes that I have taught and evolved over the years:

 

1: Take Your Best Shots: In-the-field 4-6 hour informative and relaxed basic to advanced photography techniques 

2: Compelling Composition: All about composition, the most important skill once you have learned the technical aspects of photography.

3: The Alleys and Scenics of Crested Butte: Focusing our lenses on the intriguing Victorian and often funky architecture and gardens of Crested Butte.

 

 

And of course I teach Custom Private Workshops  where I teach you (and your group, etc) anything you want to learn in locations all around the world-or in your backyard.  Call for pricing on these workshops-you will love my price structure.

 

I estimate that I have now taught over 500 students-many of them repeat customers-over the years.  

I have an informal yet very informative style of teaching, and I will usually not hand you lots of sheets and bullet lists to go over- unless it is a multi-day workshop.

Even then, I prefer to be very much hands-on in the field. The best way to learn is to actually do things and experiment as we encounter myriad lighting, composition, and other photography related situations and challenges. Doing is learning-as they say...

I also prefer to limit group sizes in my typical 3-5 hour classes to no more than 5-8 clients in order to maximize the potential for one-on-one instruction should you need it.

     I am currently in the beginning stages of creating Get Into Focus Photography Adventures   https://www.getintofocusphotoadventures.com/

 

 I plan on getting Get Into Focus to be one of the top recognized (mostly nature, scenics, wildlife, film and media) photography workshop offerings in the US.

 

Until then:

Stay tuned, get out there with your camera- and "Get Into Focus"
