February – May Workshops

This is the year to dive deep into your creative process, to explore and discover what makes you tick and what excites you as a photographer. 2015 is the Year of Why. I’ll be offering a series of what I call Why Workshops where we’ll explore how we use our senses to be more aware of and find meaningful subjects to photograph, how our senses and perception affect what and how we photograph, and what it is about us as individuals that inspires us to create what we do. Join me for one or more of these workshops for February – May. More information and registration on my Workshops page:

Let’s Break Barriers

Let’s break barriers together. There are many barriers to creative vision, from the seemingly impossible variety of cameras and equipment, to software, missing skills and knowledge, and your fears. I offer a wide variety of photography instruction in a classroom setting, one-on-one, or workshop. You can take a full class or mix and match the things you would like specific assistance with, like aperture’s control of depth of field, basic image processing and corrections in Elements or Photoshop (which also applies to Lightroom users), long exposure, or the business of photography, among others. Gift certificates are also available in nearly any amount if you know a friend or loved one who would like to have more control over their photographs. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
Visit blueplanetphoto.com for details and to register and purchase gift certificates.

Let's break barriers together. Photography classes, workshops, and one-on-one instruction.
