Photography Workshops

Improve Your Photography Skills Level 1

Do you have a digital camera and want to learn how to take better pictures in a relaxed, fun atmosphere? Can you tolerate a teacher who gets so enthralled in helping others learn about photography that he has been known to stumble over his words in excited ramblings about aperture, shutter speed and ISO? Do you want to learn about shutter speed, aperture and ISO? Do you have an inkling that ISO, shutter speed and aperture may be important things to learn but aren’t sure how it all works?

Then this workshop is for you!!


How Long: 4 hours in classroom

How Much: $85 (discounts for returning students and for bringing a friend)

Improve Your Photography Skills Level 2Peter-West-Carey-Bhutan2013-0320-5686-2

If you understand the basics of Shutter Speed, Aperture and ISO and are looking to expand the artistic side of your photography skills, then consider a Level 2 workshop. These workshops are longer than Level 1 and include extensive time shooting outside under professional guidance. After shooting, we review images and look for what works and what areas you can spend more time practicing.

We cover such topics as

  • Leading Lines
  • Focal Points
  • Storytelling – moving beyond snapshots when traveling
  • Capturing Emotion With Photographs
  • And more

Individual Private Photography Instruction

Some people don’t learn well in a classroom environment and for those of you out there, I offer 1-on-1 individualized photography instruction. The two hour session is a non-stop exploration of what is important to YOU, first and foremost. Need the basics of light, shutter, aperture and ISO covered? Done. Want to move on to other, more advanced topics? Sure. Or maybe you’re new to it all and just want to understand what all the functions of your camera really DO?

We can either meet indoors at a comfortable location to go over theory and equipment familiarity or take a walk around town to get a real hands-on feel for your new skills. <Read More>

Thank you for your interest in photography tours. Currently I am pausing international photo tours until my daughter finishes school so I can enjoy this special time with her and my family. Look for a return of tours in 2019/2020.
