Are you a photographer?

I'd love to get to know you! I teach classes for people just starting out who want to learn their way around a camera, as well as for those who know the basics but want some one-on-one mentoring help to build their skills. I also co-founded and run a workshop for experienced family photographers that brings the best and the brightest in the industry together each year in New Orleans.

Group Classes

$75 per person

Digital photography is fun and hugely rewarding, but can also be pretty darn frustrating if you don’t know how to take control of your camera. Cameras & Cocktails is a no-pressure, no-techno-speak, (but no fluff!) class designed to improve your understanding of both the technical and artistic elements of digital photography without making you crazy.

Classes are scheduled once a quarter at my studio, and can be arranged for private groups of 5-8 people at the studio or on location. You don’t need to bring anything other than your camera and an interest in photography... we’ll go through each topic step by step, and you’ll receive a .pdf download of the annotated presentation at the end of the class.

Private Mentoring

$900 - 4 meetings

Private mentoring is essentially a personalized workshop tailored to your schedule, your specific areas of concern, and your level of ability. We will meet four times for two hours each, generally following the following format:

  1. Overview meeting - full walk-through of shooting, editing, and/or running a business, focused on your particular areas of interest.

  2. Live session - you'll come along for a real session and watch me as I work with my clients, then we'll immediately go for coffee and talk through the process.

  3. Editing session: I'll walk you through my process in Lightroom as we edit the photos from the session you attended.

  4. Roundup: we'll do a full portfolio and/or website review of your work, then have a final Q&A to answer any lingering questions.

the family narrative

March 12-15, 2018

I am one of four co-founders of The Family Narrative, which is a four day retreat for family photographers held in New Orleans each spring. If you photograph families professionally, you will find no better resource for great information, inspiration, and camaraderie. Our goal in creating this retreat was to offer established photographers a place to commune with their peers, push through burnout, learn from each other and leave feeling inspired and invigorated.
