This old Studebaker sat quietly at Old Car City, and she rewarded me by being a very patient subject.

Adobe Photoshop used to be one of those software applications that only the pros could afford (or justify purchasing). However, now that Photoshop is included with the Adobe Photography Subscription, which is how many of us get their copy of Lightroom, it might be a good time to see what this powerful software can do for your photographs.
I’m teaching two classes this month that will utilize Adobe Photoshop to do things that you cannot do in Lightroom. All participants will receive a printable PDF notes companion.

I’m pleased to announce two instructional photo safaris for spring 2017! These are small-group excursions to photographically interesting places where I will give each participant personalized attention on composition, camera techniques, and post-processing. Make your plans to join me this spring!
Head down to Georgia this spring as we explore the 40 acres of rusted cars and trucks at Old Car City USA and discover creative ways of capturing their colors and textures. Limit: 12
Join me in Moab, Utah, as we explore some of the finest landscapes in the American southwest and learn fine-art capture and processing techniques each day. Limit: 8
It’s been a busy couple of months this fall, but I’ve wrapped up my 2016 instructional photo tours. The last stop this year: Old Car City USA. What an amazing place! I brought a dozen photographers from across the USA to White, Georgia. We spent two days photographing the rusting cars, with a particular focus on close-up and HDR techniques. We had time each day to work together on our laptops to learn workflow and processing techniques (your photo isn’t done until you’ve at least tried to polish it up in post).
I’m already looking forward to 2017, and with any luck, a return to Old Car City will be in the works!
I want to offer my heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended a live event with me this year. Whether it was an online webinar, personal online instruction, or a instructional photo tour, I really can’t tell you how much it means to me to have you put your trust in me to share my passion of photography.

2017 marks my 7th consecutive year of leading landscape photography safaris in South Dakota! I hope you’ll join me to explore fine-art landscape photography techniques in an environment that can only be described as surreal. We will explore light, texture and clouds over the tremendous rock formations that have formed from erosion over the last 500,000 years.
You’ll be treated to some amazing sunrises and sunsets and rock formations that could be mistaken for the moon. This safari is the perfect setting for photographers who not only want to photograph spectacular scenery, but also learn the behind the scenes techniques for processing and workflow, including HDR, infrared, and long exposures.
Each day, we will download and process our images together as a group, get critiques, and learn new techniques to transform your photos into fine-art masterpieces. I will work with you to capture and process the best possible images into beautiful finished products.
When: Sept. 17-21, 2017
Where: Wall, South Dakota (nearest airport: Rapid City)
