We have some very exciting workshops being planned for next year, so if you are not on our workshop notification list (scroll down to sign up) then I strongly suggest it. Here are just a few of the exciting programs that are coming next year:
- Driftwood Beach and Cumberland Island multi-night workshop

- Blue Ghosts firefly workshop in Brevard, NC. This will be a highly unique offering due to our exclusive access to the property

Invest in Yourself
It’s an amazing feeling when you get good enough at photography to fill your home or apartment with prints that you took and can be proud of. Photography is a lifelong skill, and a single workshop can significantly improve your ability to take beautiful photos for decades to come.
Jason Clemmons from JMC Artistic Photography and I are offering workshops at some of the most beautiful locations in the Georgia mountains and beyond. Each workshop is unique and covers a variety of topics ranging from beginner to advanced level techniques.
You receive instruction on a variety of areas that are customized based on your abilities, background knowledge, equipment, and personal goals. In addition to taking photos in beautiful locations, we include a post-processing clinic that showcases many of the techniques that you can use in Lightroom (and Photoshop in advanced clinics) to really make your work come alive. This is very rare, as most field-based workshops do not include editing instruction during the same workshop.
Many of our workshops are small-group instruction, so you have ample time to ask questions and receive personalized attention throughout the workshop. I also include some instruction on aerial imaging, just in case you have been curious about expanding your knowledge with drone photography.
Jason and I offer a selection of workshops in a variety of locations, and we have also partnered with FIND Outdoors to offer workshops to an even broader audience. The result is a range of opportunities for you to enhance your skills, on location at some of the prettiest places in the Southeast. We guarantee that at the end of the day, there will be a noticeable improvement in what you can do with a camera.

Workshop Cancellation Policy
We have realized that it can be very subjective when it comes to what kind of weather we have, if it will allow for the photography the participants are seeking, and if we should offer some kind of refund if the weather is poor. Instead of us having to make this judgement call, we have decided to let our participants decide the level of risk they want to take when it comes to the weather. If 4 days out from a workshop you think the weather looks too rainy or too cloudy for you to enjoy your time, then you can get some or all of your money back. Our workshop cancellation policy is:
- 14 or more days from workshop – full refund
- 3-14 days from workshop – 1/2 refund and full refund if we can fill your spot
- 3 or less days from workshop – no refund
If weather conditions become too dangerous for the workshop to be held, we will cancel the workshop and issue a full refund to participants. This means heavy lightning or ice/snow.
We honestly feel that, unless conditions are dangerous, you will learn a lot no matter what the weather is. If you are seeking a sunset but instead get fog, we will work with you to create moody, ethereal images instead. Landscape photography and weather work as a team, and as a photographer you work with what Mother Nature gives you.
