Classes and Private Instruction:
I am dedicated to sharing my knowledge of photography with others who love seeing the world through the lens of a camera. My classes and private instruction are designed to be exciting and creative experiences that give participants the opportunity to learn and build their photography skills in beautiful locations. I work to create personalized learning experiences for beginning and intermediate photographers.
Classes are limited to no more than 12 participants. This low student teacher ratio insures individual attention for everyone. Private instruction is available starting with 2 hour sessions up to multi-day instruction. Classroom type instruction is required for some subjects but most of my instruction is conducted hands-on in the field. If you love photography and want to increase your ability to share your vision with others, a workshop is perfect for you.
Private instruction is also available. Subject matter can be custom designed to fit your personal needs or you can select from a variety of topics that are appropriate for a wide range of beginning and intermediate photographers.

Priddy Woods is what I call our outdoor nature school. I teach classes on the BlueRidge Parkway, at the Asheville Botanical Gardens, Priddy Woods, and other interesting as well as beautiful locations.
Each class is held out-of-doors in nature. A Year With the Trees classes are currently being held five days per month. You can find the schedule for these classes at AYearWiththeTrees.blogspot.com. You can also find these classes on the calender for the North Carolina Environmental Education Certification Program.
During each class, we will visit and get to know six to seven trees. While taking the Year with the trees classes, each student will visit each tree once with me and revisit each tree on their own three more times, once per season. Each and every time a tree is visited, a journal entry will be made. Observations, using all of our senses, will be recorded in our journals. Observations will include the name, location, size, age, leaf, bark, bud, flower, fruit, twigs, color, smell, taste, landscape and personal impressions of each tree. By the time the Journal is complete; the student will really know the tree and be able to identify each species in all four seasons.
