Get Serious !

Get Serious ! Have you run out of photographic ideas ?  Are you looking for new inspiration ?  Do you feel like you are working alone ? Do you need to find your own creative path ? If the answer is yes to any of these questions than it is time for you to indulge yourself in a workshop. But not just any workshop.  My group workshops and The Leica Akademie Workshops are all inclusive...We cover instruction, lodging,  and meals. All you need to do is get to the workshop ! My workshops are 90% field work. So you are learning while working, a very important aspect of improving your photography.  Click the link below to get in touch with me directly.

Leica Akademie Workshops

In 2013 I began working with Leica Camera, introducing the "Leica in the Landscape" series of workshops. These are usually four day/ four night workshops designed to improve both technical and creative aspects of photography while enjoying being in great locations in the America West.  I will be continuing this series in 2018 with four workshops.
