Private Photography Tours

Workshops and Private Instruction are designed for any photographer.  It doesn't matter whether you're aspiring or advanced.  Both will learn from the process, I guarantee it.  Since my background is in Art, you can expect to gain a lot of information about composition, color, balance and harmony.  Vision is also a large part of the planning aspect of a photoshoot.  Knowing the micro climates here in the mountains can have a dramatic effect on your landscape photography.  I'll share all of the software and techniques I use to plan my trips.

About this Workshop:

One on One photography tours are custom designed for you.  Just give me an idea of what you're looking for and I'll design a trip that will hit the spots during peak times giving you the opportunity to relax and focus on other things.  

I'll be making recommendations along the way for other opportunities during times that most people go home.  There is always something amazing happening in the High Country.


I was recently given access to one of our local and most pristine Mountains in the area, Grandfather Mountain.  I am encouraged to bring guests, so you will get to experience this amazing place with me at no entry fee.  It's a photographer's dream.  Bring plenty of cards and all of your dreamy lenses. 

Find out more about it here:  Grandfather Mountain


All private and small group sessions are welcome to ride with me.  I'll even come pick you up!  This is super valuable time as I share all the ins and outs of landscape photography, and the software I use to map out my day and find new locations.  

This will be an information overload, but how fun is it to geek out on weather and photography!  I hope you will consider joining me on one of these custom designed adventures!

Workflow:

My Workflow is simple and easy to understand, and I am happy to share as much or as little as you wish to learn.  Most folks find a lot of value in composition critique, image selection and the use of 3rd party software like Nik by DXO, TopazLuminar AI and TK Luminosity Masks.  Luminosity masking is also a popular discipline to learn.  It involves some of the most advanced techniques I know.  If creative compositing and layer blending is your thing, it is something I know very well.  My black & white techniques are very popular and some of my personal favorites.  I am happy to show you the many ins and outs of all of those conversions.


Local areas I frequent include Grandfather Mountain, The Blue Ridge Parkway, Linville Gorge, Roan Mountain, Pisgah National Forest, Oconee, The Nantahala's and The Great Smokies.  


My equipment includes:

Nikon D850, D810 and D4s

Breakthrough Filters

Mavic 2Pro Drone

Ronin SC2 Gimbal

GoPro Hero 8 & 9

Macbook Pro


Software that I use:  Lightroom Classic & Photoshop 2022
