Events & Teaching

The most rewarding aspect of my career is sharing my passion through photo tours, presentations, and the photography festivals I organize. I love to expose people to new places and techniques and see the excitement on their faces. Join me on an event. Experience my dedication and commitment to giving participants the photographic time of their life.

Every event I offer is different in some way. Click on the links to learn more about each one and to register. Click on Registration-General Info on the left for general information about the events I offer. Please note that this applies only to events that I organize and lead myself. Some events listed below are organized by others and I am only the guest speaker or guide. You will need to obtain information from them.

New events are added regularly, so please keep checking back.
