I love doing these workshops and this always gives me a good opportunity to share what I have learned and what I believe is valuable as you are developing your vision for your photography. I look forward to seeing you there!

Foundations of Digital Photography
We will explore and learn how to look at the incredible value of composition, learn why lighting is everything in photography and dive into those camera settings you’ve been avoiding. All for the purpose of immediately enhancing your way of seeing and capturing beautiful photos.
