Welcome to my photo workshops. On my 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.

Private and semi-private workshops (photography and Photoshop) – in the US and around the world – are available, too. Oh yeah, we are celebrating our 15th year of running workshops.
