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.  I can teach you about your camera in addition to lighting, composition and story telling.  You can travel to Santa Fe or Scottsdale or meet meet me in 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 my 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, On1, Nik Software, Macphun, 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. I 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.

Destination Private Instruction

I am also available for destination based instruction. 

If you would like to benefit from a highly individualized level of instruction and location guidance, consider the option of booking a private workshop/tour with me at the location of your choice worldwide. I will tailor the experience to accommodate the specific interests, goals, experience, and physical capabilities of an individual or small group.
