About this Workshop

This High Country guided tour will take you to the lesser known locations. A sunrise or sunset is mostly on tap for us, along with a short hike.  While on location, we'll enjoy breaktaking views and cover any questions about composition and shooting technique.  I always give my clients the flexibility to design the day as they wish and we'll cover anything you like.  My goal is to ensure you leave with a great experience, great images and more information than you can handle.  I promise, the information I share will give you focus and a good solid vision on how to achieve your goals.

Your Lightroom and Photoshop sessions are recorded, so you can watch the video over and over again in the comfort of your own home.

My "go to" software is Adobe Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC.  We can dive into workflow as deep as you like. This can be anything from the basics in Lightroom to Photoshop techniques like Levels,  Curves, Exposure Blending and Luminosity Masking.  I'm also familiar almost all 3rd party software, like Nik, On One, etc...  I also use phone many phone Apps to stay in tune with the weather and other conditions, such as The Photographers Ephemeris, Photo Pills, Starstax and Dark Sky, just to name a few..  We'll cover these in our session.

Other topics we will cover during our session include:  Camera settings, shooting technique, creative and advanced Composition, "seeing the light", the Vision process, filters, Post Processing, monitor calibration, printing and much, much more.  This is to ensure you are capturing what you need to  maximize an efficient and non-destructive workflow. 

An image review/critique is included in every session.  


There is moderate, rocky hiking to get to most of our shoot locations.  I'm always flexible on this and happy to suggest a trail fitting to your skill level.  However, the better locations are up the trail.  

My favorite areas include Grandfather Mountain, Blue Ridge Parkway, Linville Gorge, Roan Mountain, Pisgah and the Great Smokies.  I am always up for a trip to these beautiful, target rich environments.  

I am currently a Nikon shooter(D810 & D800), but familiar with most camera systems.  

I am Licensed, Insured and CPR certified.
