Join me in San Diego, California for a bird and wildlife photography workshop. This exclusive instructional photo safari is limited to six (6) participants for a personal experience that you can’t get from the big tours. I offer “ask me anything” instruction during the safari to ensure you’re getting the best quality images. Because of the small group size, I’m able to offer a more intimate instructional style that allows each participant to get the knowledge they need to succeed.
This safari is perfect for beginning to intermediate photographers who wish to capture portraits of birds and wildlife, plus hone their skills on photographing birds in flight. We will have the opportunity to photograph numerous species, including pelicans, cormorants, gulls, and terns. We will also likely encounter sea lions and other wildlife on the beaches, and have the opportunity to get some nice sunsets and environmental shots.
Each day, we will download and process our images together as a group, get critiques, and learn new techniques to make your photos into fine-art masterpieces. I will work with you to capture and process the best possible images into beautiful finished products.
Live Training Saturday, Nov. 9th 1-3pm US Eastern Time
Luminosity Masks are a unique tool that allow you to target tone, color, and contrast adjustments to specific tone ranges in your image. Because luminosity masks are unique to each photograph, they allow your adjustments to blend in perfectly every time.
In this class, I’ll show you how to get creative with advanced luminosity masking techniques using my custom actions. You’ll learn curves adjustments, layer blending mode options, and how to work with zone masks to improve your tricky images.

Whether its dealing with airport security or just figuring out how to pack everything so it is safe, there are lots of little things that can make your travel experience easier. Here are some of my favorite travel tips.
While Adobe Lightroom Classic is a powerful image editor and workflow management tool in its own right, there are certain things that it cannot do. To go beyond Lightroom, you need a pixel editor such as Adobe Photoshop. In this class, I will teach you how and why to utilize Adobe Photoshop alongside Lightroom. I will present a coherent Lightroom/Photoshop workflow strategy and take you through the features of Photoshop that every Lightroom user should know, including:
