As the organizer of DCPG, I plan on hosting a number of photography events and workshops. I am currently the advance photography (and photoshop) instructor for the Chester County Night School.

I love teaching and sharing information about photography.

Who should join?

Anyone interested in learning / improving their photography skills and meeting people with similar interest. Generally this group will be for digital SLR and mirrorless camera owners.

This group will be mostly for ME TO TEACH FELLOW PHOTOGRAPHERS new skills and advance the art of photography!

To join the group is free. When I hold an event that I will provide lessons I will be charging a fee for the instruction. I do have other event that I will not be charging for, at those event I generally do not do much teaching.

You can view a complete list of the classes I teach at http://www.photography-workshop.net

WOW! - How did you make that picture look so amazing? (Adobe Lightroom)

In this 7-session course, you’ll be taught how to process your digital photographs so they look amazing! Adobe Lightroom software is used by almost every professional photographer and we will teach you the essentials of using it to organize and edit your images like a professional. We will be doing real-world demonstrations with student’s photographs and teach you how to develop your “ho-hum” images into “WOW” images that are award worthy. You will be amazed how much better your images will look after this class! Class is a combination of lecture and hands-on editing.

WOW! - Introduction To Flash Photography!

Are you tired of your family portraits looking like mug shots? Do the people you shoot look like they are frozen deer in front of your headlights? In this workshop we will give you a crash course on the basics of small flash (speed lights) photography and the gear you need to make stunning images. Class will consist of some lecture, but primarily demonstrations and hands-on labs. You will learn how to effectively use a single inexpensive flash to more complex multi-flash setups. Mastering flash will allow you to create amazing “WOW!” photographs in any lighting situation. If you can open your mind and believe in something that happens so fast that you cannot even see it, magic will happen before your lens!
