It’s a hands-on class about how to make better images and, well, develop your photographer’s eye.

Iceland Ring Road Photo Adventure,
May, 16-23
Iceland – a photographer’s bucket-list destination and the land of fire, ice and…puffins!
This year’s trip is around the whole island during mid May when the weather is milder, there’s around 20 hours of daylight as we move toward the midnight sun, and thousand of Atlantic puffins come ashore to nest.
The adventure starts in Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital. From there we’ll travel around Iceland’s ring road, heading along the south coast, then up into the eastern fjords, the north’s arctic coast and Diamond Circle, down the west side and back to Reykjavik. Along the way we’ll photograph mighty waterfalls, otherworldly canyons, glaciers, geothermal areas, mountains, fishing villages, puffins, lupines and more. Each night we’ll stay in country hotels where we can relax and recharge and dine on the local cuisine. Click for more information.

Acadia, Schoodic & Mount Desert Isle 
October 22-26 
Join me for a special 5-day/4-night workshop on the beautiful coast of Maine as we photograph Acadia National Park, the Schoodic Peninsula, Mount Desert Island and DownEast Maine. The workshop includes lodging for four nights and all meals (except one lunch and dinner in Bar Harbor),  including a lobster dinner (alternatives available). We’ll be based at the Schoodic Institute near Schoodic Point. Known as the quiet side of Acadia, the Schoodic Peninsula offers a variety of opportunities to experience Maine’s rugged coast, including dramatic cliffs and rocky shorelines, woodland trails that lead to the famous Schoodic Point and its giant slabs of pink granite that extend into the open Atlantic. It’s a great spot for sunrise, sunset,  the moon and stars. We’ll also visit coastal villages such as Birch Harbor, Prospect Harbor and the quaint Corea for scenes of classic DownEast Maine – fishing boats, lobster traps, working docks and more. On Mount Desert Island, we’ll explore picturesque locales such as Bar Harbor, the Acadia coast, Jordan Pond, Eagle Lake, as well as places off the beaten track.  Click here for more information.

Lightroom II: mastering Light, Color and the Art of Dodge & Burn
Coming Soon. Click here to be notified of schedule.
In this hands-on Zoom-based workshop, you will learn how and why to use Lightroom’s many powerful “dodge and burn” tools to deliberately control light and color and create your own creative look and style. Dodge & Burn is an old darkroom term for adjusting light and shadow in specific parts of an image. By controlling light, shadows and color, you can guide the viewer’s experience of an image and add emotion, dimensionality and pop to a picture. It’s how you make a picture come to life and look great. Working on sample images and some of your own pictures, you’ll learn to use Lightroom’s new masking tools, including the luminosity and color masking features with the “intersect” and other new options, plus the new Adjustment Brush, Radial and Graduated Filters, and the Sky and Subject selection tools. You will also learn to use the Color Grading panel, HSL sliders, Calibration sliders, profiles and more. In addition to learning Lightroom’s tools we’ll also look at some famous paintings and photographs to examine how these old masters used light and color to create their masterpieces.
