1. Group workshops provide full immersion into a fun, creative collective learning experience. You’ll benefit from sharing ideas, inspiration and knowledge with other experienced artists. My multi-day workshops offer the opportunity to work in desirable locations to learn while shooting, and gain important insights through group photo reviews. Students also receive individual coaching.

Independent learning
with me allows us to fully customize the experience to fit your learning style, pace, and any other specific needs. We have the freedom and direct focus to follow the moment, shoot together and review images. We work at my location, in the field or at your home. You can bring current projects or images to work on.

3. Online learning via Zoom with shared screens in scheduled sessions. Similar to #2 above, we address your specific needs at your convenience, right from your location. Zoom is free, and all you need is my emailed link. Contact me to inquire about price and scheduling sessions.

We are working on workshops in Varanasi, Prague and Portugal.










I'd love to share my knowledge with you.

    I would be interested in learning the techniques used in your photo illustations. I am a fairly decent photographer, have knowledge of my camera and my photoshop skills are probably considered mediocre although I know a little about a lot things. Are any of your upcoming workshops teaching these techniques.
