“A great teacher is one who realizes that he himself is also a student and whose goal is not to dictate the answers, but to stimulate his students creativity enough so that they go out and find the answers themselves.” -Herbie Hancock

Photography is the language of light, color, shape, texture, and emotion. Your ability to use this language effectively is the basis of how I approach each Beyond the Lens Photography Workshop. Any camera today can make perfect pictures, but only by seeing photographically can you convey an emotion, express your style, and create images that rise above the mere “snapshot”. If you are serious about your photographic potential, then our workshops are designed to provide you with the inspiration, the skills, and the personal attention that will help you realize your creative vision.

 
In the above video I talk about why I think our photo workshops are unique, and share behind the scenes footage as I describe my approach to teaching and photography in general. There are some beautiful vistas across North America as well!
