Let us help you open the door to better photographic adventures

Note to those seeking a workshop in one of the national parks:  To legally operate a photography workshop in any national park (as well as other national lands) in the United States, the workshop operator must have either a Commercial Use Authorization or Incidental Business Permit.  If you are part of a group that does not have the proper permitting, your group will likely be asked to leave the park if caught (and in most parks now, the rangers do check groups for permits).  We are permitted to operate in every national park in which we offer a workshop, and we are very proud of that.  It is our belief that the anyone using the park to generate income should be happy to share those revenues with the park system that we know drastically needs the money (and the money for these permits stays in the park that collects it).  If you are registering for someone else's workshop, we highly recommend that you ask them if they are permitted.  Not all are, and the risk becomes yours (we have heard of two groups asked to leave a park recently and know that the individual parks are trying to enforce these rules now).

We will help you visualize in new, more creative ways, and stretch your photographic eye forever.  If you are looking for workshops that take you to the field and keep you busy making images, we will take you to some of North America's most inspirational locations for the highest quality, one-on-one, in-the-field photographic instruction.

If the group size requires name tags to remember individuals, the group is too large.

We believe the small group size we maintain -- usually never greater than eight participants per instructor -- allows us to offer some of the most individualized instruction available.  You will be part of a small focused group that spends most of its time in the field learning to make better  photographs. (see Typical Workshop for additional discussion).

Discover the imaging potential of the open mind.

Join us for one of our workshops, and we will be happy to add you to our long list of satisfied customers.
