One of the great privileges I have had is to study with some of the best nature photographers in the business such a Piotr Naskrecki, Alex Wild, and Thomas Shahan.  Their willingness to take the time to share their craft has been a huge help in my photographic journey.  In that spirt, I  am available to conduct private training sessions and group workshops on nature, insect, macro, and lightning photography as well as a general introduction to DSLR photography.

Personalized Training

I will conduct one-on-one training sessions by the hour, half day and for a full day.  These sessions can be tailored to the needs and interests of the individual photographer, and can include studio work and photography in the field.  Topics can include photo-stacking, macro-photography, whitebox photography, photographing insects, lightning photography, general nature photography.  I can cover the selection and use of equipment as well as practical application in the field.  One of the goals of the session is to help the student compose some great photos from the session.  Students are expected to bring appropriate equipment such as a DSLR camera, macro lens and off camera flash for insect photography.  Rates as follows:

  • Per hour – $100
  • Half day – $250
  • Full day – $400

Group workshops

I am available to do group instruction on the topics listed above.  These can be tailored to the specific needs of the group and can include classroom lecture as well as hands on practice.  Rates as follows

  • Per session – $200 per hour plus travel expenses.
  • Full day – $1000 plus travel expenses
