Travel Photography Workshops
Experience the difference of learning in a small “boutique” travel photography workshop with a master photographer by your side. My full-immersion photography workshops offer unparalleled personal attention with world-class instruction in an experience designed to keep you focused on your photography. My workshops are conducive to all experience levels, from novice to professional.
Most of my travel photography workshops include all ground transportation, lodging, and photographic instruction before/during/after the workshop. My workshops are designed to create the best possible experience – with maximum value and minimal hassles – while providing you with the best photographic experience and instruction.
The Seascapes of the Rugged Oregon Coast
There are few places more photogenic than the rugged Oregon Coast. Lined with stormy seascapes, rugged cliffs, hidden beaches, and expansive dunes, there’s really no place like the southern Oregon Coast to experience the raw power of the Pacific Ocean! At the same time, walk through old-growth forests, chase the tide in hidden coves, hike secluded beaches, or savor the view of a classic lighthouse to enjoy the region’s spectacular serenity.
Join me for 5 nights and 4-1/2 days as we explore the rugged seascapes and tranquil forests of the majestic Oregon Coast!

If you’re a photographer, hiker, or nature lover, the Badlands of New Mexico is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that should be on your bucket list! Meander through endless hoodoos, desert spires, arches, and unimaginable rock formations in an alien world that was once a coastal swamp of an inland sea where dinosaurs roamed.
Join me on this 5-day backcountry adventure with 5 other students at a destination that National Geographic Travel listed as one of their “must visit” adventure destinations in 2019.

Death Valley Backcountry Adventure
Most photography workshops barely scratch the surface of this fantastic park because many of the “best” locations are only accessible using 4×4 high-clearance vehicles on rough backcountry roads.
We’ll trek to three of the most remote and spectacular areas of the park that seldom get seen: Racetrack Playa – where the famous “sailing stones” are found; the Eureka Sand Dunes – the tallest dunes in California and possibly North America; and the Ubehehe Crater – a half-mile wide volcanic crater.
