This Meetup group for any photographer interested in learning how to capture better images, whether for your personal travels or to make photography your living- subjects including digital workflow, HDR, nature, people & lifestyle, studio, travel, wildlife, and more.

As a master photographer, a commercial travel pro since 1991 who's authored books for Random House (The Complete Guide to Nature Photography, and, The BetterPhoto Guide to Exposure), written articles for Petersen's Photographic, Outdoor Photographer, Amazon's Digital Photography Review, and Photoshop User magazines, and shot assignments around the world for various clients (National Geographic, Sunset, Via, etc) I take pride in teaching people of all levels and providing a fun comfortable atmosphere in all my workshops.

All skills levels are welcome, whether you've never picked up a camera, been shooting for years, or just like hangin' out with like-minded folks.  Most if not all of my workshops are fee-based because I bring a wealth of experience, well-prepared presentations, in-field direction, and shoot in quality locations.

Workshop fees are based on time, location, and overhead costs. I usually teach at nice locations, from classrooms with fully-loaded Mac workstations, to locations like the Red Barn classroom at Point Reyes (converted into a comfortable teaching space with a LCD projector, sound system, kitchen, bathrooms, etc).  On occasion I might meet in the field and charge a smaller fee just to meet and shoot together- you can ask me endless questions while we capture a beautiful place.

I also lead workshops outside the Bay Area and on occasion will post those locations and event here.

Thank you for joining my group!
