Private Instruction options
Accelerate your learning with one of my private one-on-one sessions. Options include both in-person as well as online sessions from the comfort of your home or office. Any questions or want to schedule your first session?Lern more about my private instruction›
Using the shared screen services of Skype I can teach you image enhancement & workflow in Lightroom, Perfect Photo Suite, Photoshop, and/or Capture One Pro. In the comfort of your home/office you can view my screen as I work on your photos. We can even switch screens and I can watch and comment on your photo processing. Sessions can be recorded too so you can view the session over and over. We can even schedule sessions for other topics instead of image processing like marketing, website design, camera techniques, and more - it is totally up to you!!
This summer and early fall I will be available for in-person instruction in Santa Fe, NM, Grand Teton National Park, WY, Zion National Park, UT and Bozeman, MT. In the winter I will be available in Scottsdale, AZ. Learn photo processing, workflow, camera instruction, go out on full-day shoots, and more. Design your own personal photo workshop based on what you want to learn in half-day and full-day increments.
Let me mentor you in a series of 3 or 5-part sessions. Choose from one hour or 2 hour packages. Mentoring sessions can consist of any or all of the following topics and more: image processing, workflow, photo review from digital files and/or prints, portfolio reviews, marketing and selling your work, art festival preparation, website consulting with Wordpress or Shopify, camera techniques, and almost anything else you need help in.
COMING SOON... Send me your digital files for review. In return you will receive a recorded video analysis and constructive critique of your photographs along with tips and suggestions on improving your photos.
Pre-recorded Online Courses
Study image processing by enrolling in one of my online photo courses. These pre-recorded classes allow you to learn at your own pace. Watch and re-watch the videos as often as you like. New courses are coming out this summer!!

Join me as I show you how to process and enhance RAW landscape photographs in Lightroom. Much better than a webinar, this course includes 9 of my RAW landscape photos that you will be able to download yourself to work on and practice as you watch the pre-recorded videos at your own pace. You will feel like I am there with you as I go into detail explaining the corrections and adjustments I make to the photos. You will benefit from working on the exact same files as I am, accelerating your learning pace.
