Private Instruction

Private Photography Instruction

While group workshops are a great way to learn, sometimes our group workshop schedule doesn’t line up with our student’s schedule. Some students may prefer one-on-one instruction to help with one’s unique situations and goals. It is for these students that we are now excited to offer private one-on-one workshops and instruction.

I have a variety of options for you:

Post-Processing Training

Private one-on-one computer training can happen at your location if you live or travel to Phoenix/Scottsdale Arizona (winter) or Santa Fe, New Mexico (summer).

Field Instruction

Private field instruction can take place in a location of your choice.  We can teach you about your camera in addition to lighting, composition and story telling.  You can travel to Santa Fe or Scottsdale or meet us any amazing place you wish from national to international locations.

Field and Computer Training

This private instruction will include both shooting on location as well as doing some computer post processing.

Fully Customizable
Prior to the workshop we will discuss over the phone or via email what your specific learning needs are.

Possible classroom type topics can include: watching and learning our exact workflow, RAW processing, archiving & keywording, photo enhancement & effects, HDR processing, sizing photos for web & print, composition & cropping, photo website creation with Zenfolio, personal style, Photoshop, Lightroom, Capture One Pro, OnOne’s Perfect Photo Suite, Nik Software, image review, camera operation & settings, selling & marketing your photos at art festivals, and more! Working together we will build a session that is perfectly suited to you. The possibilities are endless.

For field classes, we will cover everything from camera setting to composition and lighting. We also stress the passion and story behind capturing images. We will take you to interesting places to shoot and help you "see" better when it comes to subject matter and how to capture images that will tell a story.

For on-location sessions:

Rates are priced at $60 per hour for 1-2 people.  This includes travel up to 45 minutes away from my location. A minimum of 3 hours are required for sessions at your location. Travel beyond 45 minutes away are billed at $.57 per mile.

Full Day Instruction is priced at $400 per day for 1 or 2 people

Destination Private Instruction

I am also available for destination based instruction. 


1 Participants: $300 per day (plus expenses if applicable *)

2-4 Participants: $200 per day per person (plus expenses if applicable)

4-6 Participants: $200 per day per person (plus expenses if applicable)

*If you are a female and are willing to share hotels rooms, my rates will be lower. (I do have one destination instructional trip planned for 2016 to Iceland, so I am open to traveling where you want to go)

Photo Tours

I also offer Photo Tours that are geared towards the photographer wanting less intensive instruction but wants to be introduced to interesting subjects to photograph in either Santa Fe country New Mexico during the spring to fall months or in Phoenix metro Arizona during the fall to spring months.  These are priced at $400 per day or $50 per hour with a three hour minimum. This rate is for 1 or 2 people.

Photo Clubs or School Groups

I am available for presentations to camera clubs as well as private workshops. We can work together to custom tailor a field trip, workshop or presentation for your group.
