Please see the Workshops Page for a current schedule of workshops.
Custom group and individual private lessons are available for individuals, couples, small groups, clubs, churches, schools, or organizations interested in learning more about how to take better nature photos. Charles has experience working with photographers at all skill levels, from beginner to serious amateur.
He will custom tailor each session/workshop to fit your individual or group's needs, with special emphasis on developing your own "personal vision" and experiencing nature photography in the field firsthand as a "meditative practice."
This unique, "holistic" learning experience might involve special exercises while in the field before shooting to expand your creative vision, educational slide presentations, personal portfolio reviews, and in-depth discussions on technical issues such as composition, filters, lenses, depth of field, exposure, and flash compensation.
Charles' passionate enthusiasm for nature photography and personalized teaching style combine to make for a memorable experience, whether in your own backyard or on location.
Lessons vary from just a few hours to half or full days. Private location workshops can be structured to last two, three, or five days.
Contact Charles to answer any questions and arrange for your customized instruction.
Personal Portfolio Review -
Included as part of private lessons, or as a separate service, Charles offers individual reviews of photographic portfolios or other collections of images.
Whether you've recently started taking pictures, or aspire to become a professional, Charles gives concrete and specific advice on how you can improve your image-taking skills. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn from a working pro and get some wonderful feedback, advice, pointers, suggestions, and inspiration to take your photography and "personal vision" to the next level.
Reviews are conducted based on the number of images you wish to have critiqued. You'll receive specific written recommendations from Charles on how to improve your photography, when applicable.
