Route 66 Photography Workshop

I wanted to design this special workshop for photography lovers, lighthouse enthusiasts, and adventure comrades. My classes are a hands on approach to composition, lighting, and other perspectives of photographing beautiful pictures. We could have a sit down class every morning, and then a recap every-night, but do you really want that? Wouldn’t you rather go right to the source, and start shooting.

Street Photography Workshop

Street photography is the probably the most compelling type of storytelling photography. Many photographers don’t like this style because it takes a lot of time learning, making mistakes, and re-evaluating ideas on how to make compelling stories with no words needed.
