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!
Creative Closeups at Old Car City USA: March 15-18, 2017
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
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 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.
Join me to explore the artistic side of Denver as we photograph the art and architecture of Colorado’s capitol. You’ll learn creative composition, texture blending, and post-processing techniques while exploring the photogenic downtown Denver area.
I’m pleased to announce my dates for the South Texas Birding Experience 2017. For next year, I am offering two small group (max 4) sessions for getting some of the best bird photos in all of the USA. There is nowhere else I’ve been where I can capture closeups of small birds, including unique species like the green jay with perfect backgrounds.
