I guess you could say I'm a story-teller at heart. I never set out to be an educator, but I have always loved to share my experiences. Those experiences have shaped the person I am today and I'd love to share some stories with you. I won't tell you what you should do, only what I've done. My workshop isn't just a class; it is an intimate, informal and interactive forum.  I share my philosophy to my industry-standard of post processing and everything in between. You won't just take home a notebook full of scribbled jottings, you'll take home a newly found energy and knowledge to be the best photographer you can be. It's not about the equipment or technical know how, it's about you, your eye and heart. If you don't leave inspired, I didn't do my job.
