Beginner - advanced


Our goal is to leave you feeling confident, motivated, and passionate about your photography as well as new ideas and a fresh perspective. We teach simple and actionable techniques to scout out incredible compositions and the process of how to approach and execute unique photos in any environment. The classroom portion will teach you a combination of Lightroom and Photoshop workflows and tips so you can create powerful images. We decided to keep the group small and intimate, thus allowing us to focus and give you much more access to the instructors and one-on-one attention. Both instructors will always be with the group providing thoughts and real time critique as the light changes from sunset to enchanting night skies.
