Whether you are just being introduced to your camera and want to jump past the initial learning curve quickly, or you’ve been taking photos for years and are anxious to take your images to a new level, my one-on-one private workshops can help.

One-on-one workshops are great for gaining an in-depth familiarity with your camera.

I tailor each private workshop to meet your specific needs. One-on-one workshop fees are priced based with your needs and your budget in mind, after a brief discussion that will help me understand what you want to accomplish. Typically, (as well as out-of-pocket expenses such as travel and lodging) you should expect:

  • An INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP of only a couple of hours is designed to help you understand your new camera and its “confusing” technology . . . all those buttons, dials and menus . . . along with the basics of image capture: $175.00
  • A BASIC WORKSHOP may add a couple of hours to an Introductory Workshop or even the balance of a day. We can dedicate a morning and/or afternoon providing you with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of composition, light, depth-of-field, lenses, accessories, etc.. You’ll gain the confidence to bring home pictures from your vacation or weekend get-away that you’ll be proud to share with friends and family . . . and maybe even display on your office or home walls. Typically a Basic Workshop will last about four hours (give or take): $300.00

    Private workshops work well for small private groups, too.

  • SPECIAL FOCUS WORKSHOPS are more in-depth, with attention to the specific skills you are interested in acquiring or enhancing, or specific venues you would like to explore. Perhaps you have a special interest in photographing waterfalls, flowers, mountain streams, working with Adobe Lightroom, understanding how to capture a panorama or High Dynamic Range (HDR) image, etc.. There’s virtually no limit. Then again you may want to explore someplace special, the High Peaks of the Adirondacks, New York’s Finger Lakes wine country, Cape Cod, Niagara Falls, Shenandoah Valley, etc. You’ll love what happens to your photography after just one or two personal, one-on-one sessions. PLEASE NOTE: Special Focus Workshops may even include two or more friends with similar interests. Check with me for better pricing depending on how many people you include.

Rates for each day of a SPECIAL FOCUS, ONE-ON-ONE WORKSHOP are typically around $600. That said, once I understand your needs, interests and the locale you choose, we can agree on an appropriate fee.
