What we're about

We are the Chopstick Guys - Two guys passionate about two things in life. Photography and any food you can eat with chopsticks, especially sushi! We bring the fun to photography. We realize that photographers come in all skill levels but we all have the desire to better our skills. Our goal is to provide the best learning environment for every skill level. We do this by offering the most unique opportunities available today. Whether you are looking to start learning the basics of your camera or the most advanced techniques we have you covered. From wedding photography workshops, lighting workshops, senior portrait workshops all the way to drone photography. If it has to do with photography, we do it, we love it and hope you do too!
