Here’s the latest information on my August workshop in the Badlands of South Dakota

When: August 26-30, 2020

Each day, we will have the opportunity 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.
