A Short Intro:
I would totally love it if you read everything I've typed out below. However I am realist in knowing that many of you simply do not have the time. Or? You might be on mobile and don't wish to scroll to the bottom of the page in order to sign up for a PhotoSafari you might be interested in. So? Below is a link to get you there quick. Then come on back when you've got time to read this 'ol buzzards thoughts. For those of you on a computer the PhotoSafaris are listed in the margin to the left.
I do A LOT of PhotoSafaris through out the year. These are VERY successful and something myself, my assistants, and my attendees love. This is my key focus. Taking like minded people on a journey to shoot, and also teach them my editing practices.
I try and keep all of my pricing exceptionally reasonable. Many people have told me I give away my knowledge. They might be correct. I could make more money doing online training... but then I would miss what feeds me the most... Personal interaction with my clients, and the ability to see the "light go on" in their eyes! I love this! I would much rather have you come hang out and shoot with me, then I would to have all the money in the world.
I love teaching and sharing my knowledge of Photography, Editing and Fine Art Photo Printing. I’m dedicated to making sure that every student who takes one of my Seminars or goes on a PhotoSafari comes away with new skills, new inspiration, and new ideas about how they can enjoy the art of photography.
My Style of Teaching
My world is to simplify things! Everything! The world of digital photography can be complicated and confusing. There’s lots of conflicting information out there! I work diligently to give my followers clear, simple direction that will immediately improve their Photography. One of my favorite statements... "Crop out the crap! In your Photography and in your life!"
Hands on Learning
It’s one thing to watch an instructor talk about finding the right exposure, or demonstrating a Photoshop or Lightroom technique. You may think you understand it—until you try it yourself.
I think the best way to learn is by doing. In my seminars and PhotoSafaris I make sure that every student has the opportunity to practice the techniques that I teach, with one-on-one help from myself and my assistants.
Many workshops talk about small class sizes, and then say they limit the number of students to 15, or even 20. I don’t consider 15 to the be a small group. It’s impossible for an instructor to give fifteen people the personal attention and hands-on experience necessary to improve their technique and learn to make more creative photographs.
I believe in truly small classes, and personal attention. The maximum number of attendees in my PhotoSafaris is ten, and most have less. PhotoSafaris with at least six students include a knowledgeable assistant to make sure that there is always someone available to answer questions.
It's also possible to schedule private or semi-private scenarios with me.
I do a LOT of private and semi-private PhotoSafaris. This is actually most of my business model. Las Vegas is easy to fly in and out of, and with millions of people per year coming here, why not have a Photographer that has been based here for decades, show you the secret spots?
