Private Photography Workshop


Private photography workshops increase your chances of getting great shots because they can be built around your schedule and you do not have to fight for the best spots with other participants. My private workshops give you undivided attention which leads to a deeper understanding of how I create my images.


With nearly two decades of experience as a landscape photographer, I have amassed an impressive library of shooting locations, notes and maps. This information allows me to make educated predictions of where the best conditions will be at any given time of year. I carefully work with my client’s schedule and agenda in order to create the best possible photographic experience.

Private Photography Workshops and lessons


The joy of private photography workshops is that you get to choose the location and date! I offer free consultation as to where and when I think there could be good conditions based on what you want to shoot. Not sure what you want to shoot? I can help you with that too! I’ll walk you through some of my favorite locations while sharing some images from those spots so you know what to expect when we’re shooting in the field.


Popular workshop locations include but are not limited to the following.

White Sands, NM • San Francisco Bay Area & Coast • Yosemite / Eastern Sierra • Carmel / Big Sur • Colorado • Death Valley • Valley Of Fire • LA / San Diego Cost • The Southwest • The Pacific Northwest • Hawaii (Big Island) / Kauai • Patagonia • New Zealand • The White Horses of Camargue France • Ireland • Iceland • Alaska • Kenya • Bosque Del Apache


Private photography workshops are billed at a flat day rate plus the expenses involved in operating the workshop including travel and lodging. Discounts are offered to those who will be participating in a group of two or more, so bring a friend! If you have a group that is larger than three people, please contact me for a special rate.
