workshops & one to one mentor sessions

What is it about Photography that draws you in? Is it the colors? The light? is it people? Or the tiny details you can only see if you take the time to get up close? Do you need to learn how to be creative with the things in your business or passion? DO you want to learn more about being a photographer, then this would be for you.

There are so many colors and textures, camera bodies, software and decisions when it comes to photography. In our workshops we will focus on finding that inner shine and getting creative with the way we portray it. I cannot wait to go exploring in the mountains, gardens or water with you and see what magic awaits us!

We want to teach you how to take the most beautiful images possible, without fear or doubt holding you back. We will go over client direction and composition while learning light.

We will cover YOUR camera and how to use it, including the kind of equipment you might need to achieve your goals. iphone/android photography explained, and our favorite software and editing apps revealed.

These workshops with have a “whole story” feel and we will dig deep into you and what we are doing.

creative meditations, affirmations, and new artistic tools will be laid at your feet. beware: lots of deep diving ahead!
