I teach a variety of photographic techniques, from basic photography, digital photography and Hawaii Photo Tours to more specialized creative techniques, including digital infrared photography, Polaroid /Fuji image and emulsion transfers, digital inkjet decal transfers, handcoloring, beginning Photoshop for Photographers, creative Photoshop techniques, and fine art pigment inkjet printing.
Workshops are offered as one to seven day courses. I usually teach one process or technique per day, depending on the topic of the course and the interests of the participants. These are hands-on workshops, and after a presentation and demonstration of basic techniques, participants have the rest of each day to practice what they've learned. Enrollment is limited so that each participant can receive individual attention.
If you would like to learn ONLINE in the comfort of your own home, Beginning Photoshop for Photographers courses are also available online through BetterPhoto.com in 8-week sessions.
The Women's Photography Retreats are for women who want to explore their creativity, learn new techniques, and photograph special places on the Big Island in a small and very supportive group setting. These Retreats are limited to six women, and early registration is advised. Retreats for men and women are sometimes available.
Hawaii photo tours can be arranged for when you are already coming to Hawaii, and can be from several hours to several days.
Private sessions can be scheduled for any topic that I teach, from beginning to advanced levels. Private sessions will be usually be held in my studio in Captain Cook, Hawaii. If I'm teaching or traveling in another location, a session can be arranged for before or after a scheduled workshop. Contact me to set up the details.
Please join me for a workshop, retreat, class, or photo tour. If your schedule doesn't permit enrolling in a workshop or retreat. consider a private session, private photo tour, or an online course.
