Get Personal Help In Your Photography Journey

Sometimes it’s not enough to join a half-day or full-day photo tour with us. You may want personal attention to focus on artistry or technique in your shooting and/or post-processing; organizing your photo catalog; getting out of a rut in your creative exploration and self-expression; or creating a deeper connection with the spirit and emotion contained deep within the subjects you like to photograph. Sessions can be held in the field or online depending on your location and choice of focus.

How we can help

Bonnie & Chris have both been on their own personal self-development and creative artistry journeys since their college years. Their focus for almost two decades has been their passion for Nature and photography. They have studied with numerous well-known and exceptionally creative photographers including people like:

Their post-processing toolkit includes software applications such as Adobe’s Creative Cloud with Lightroom & Photoshop; DxO/NIK; Luminar; ON1; Topaz; and others. They can help you discover and learn just the right tools and features to serve your needs without overwhelming you with the kitchen sink!

I want to thank you for an excellent past 3 months of tutoring me on the elements of good photography (the camera and tripod, Lightroom editing and picture composition).  As you know, I had an interest in photography but very limited knowledge.  We both developed a 3 month plan involving Zoom and field meetings which were highly effective.  I started with almost no technical knowledge of this hobby and after just 3 months I feel very comfortable with many aspects of taking and editing good photos.  You clearly have extensive knowledge in this field and your approach to working with me was very comfortable so the learning process was easy.  I now feel energized to use my new knowledge of photography to get out and take some great photos plus followup with editing. As we discussed, I am confident that I will want to meet again for a refresher plus help me advance further in this field. Thanks again, say hi to Bonnie and have a great summer

Chris has been helping me with production work for several months. He is extremely knowledgeable about Lightroom. He is a very patient teacher, and communicates his ideas very well. When we are analyzing my work, he has an excellent sense of composition and lighting and how they impact my shots. I trust his objective opinion on which photos to keep for further work, and which to discard. I highly recommend him for anyone needing assistance with post shoot work!
