Welcome to my 2016 photo workshops page. On my photo workshops I try to Inspire you to make better photographs. You will Create original images – on site and in the digital darkroom. And you will feel as though you Belong - belong to great group of photographers who like to have a ton of fun with their photography. New to my workshops? Here are my favorite Photo Philosophies.

My workshops are open to photographers at all levels of learning.

Private lessons with me in Croton-on-Hudson, New York are also available. Cost is $150 for the first hour, up to two people per session. Contact me. On-line lessons/portfolio reviews are also available for $100 an hour.

Oh yeah, 2016 is our 16th year of running photography workshops.
