Field Workshops

When you join me for a photography field workshop, in the Charleston, SC area and beyond, you will learn how to take full control of your camera to create the images that you are picturing in your mind.  We will experiment with different apertures, shutter speeds, focal lengths and filters to truly understand what it means to be creative with your images.  I am a big believer that “Composition is King” when it comes to my photography.  If the composition isn’t speaking to me on a personal level, no amount of digital enhancement will fix it.  I am a very relaxed, fun instructor who gets very excited when my students learn something new.  These workshops are all about YOU!

Photo editing has gotten a bad reputation. Likely because there is so much poor editing being displayed on the internet. However, just as we once (and some still do) processed photos in the dark room, we can do the same thing on the computer today. The good news is that we no longer get a chemical headache in the process! 

The trick to this is learning how to process with a delicate hand. Treating pixel data with care and having a good work flow can keep your images from becoming just another grungy photo on the web. You can, with practice, learn to take that image off of the memory card and create a beautiful piece of art you'd be proud to hang on your wall. I can walk you through the process from capture to output.

E Books

My E-Book, Composition For The Landscape Photographer is a nearly 90 page ebook with easy to follow compositional techniques presented in an inspiring way. I go through the composition process step by step with visual examples of every method presented in the book.

Video Workshops

My local workshops are extremely popular. But what can you do if you don't live near me or are unable to participate in a travel workshop? Download a video workshop of course! I design these videos to mirror my live workshops and you will not be disappointed by the information available to you in these high quality workshops at home.
