Ever wonder what those buttons on your camera do?

Would you like to know good places to photograph?

Since 2002, I have been wandering the backroads of the North Bay and have explored nearly every road and open space between San Francisco and Mendocino. Since 2007, I have been sharing this knowledge of photography and places to photograph through my workshops.

About The Places We Photograph

Finding a subject to photograph is just as important as knowing how to use a camera. I thoroughly scout out the locations for these workshops, so that you just need to concern yourself with capturing the scene before you.

About Lance

I am an award-winning photographer who also co-owns Riverfront Art Gallery, voted best gallery in Petaluma and in Sonoma County multiple times. My work has been sold by Pottery Barn as limited-edition prints, and is featured on posters sold throughout the world.

Types of Workshops

There are three types of outings that are commonly offered here:

Afternoon Outings:

These workshops take place in the North Bay and last between 6 and 8 hours. Afternoon outings are timed to start when the light is good. The locations are chosen because it is optimal for photography at that particular time of year. Start times vary due to travel time to the selected location and the season.

Two Day Workshops:

Weekend workshops can take place anywhere in Northern California. Typically the driving time to our destination is between 2 and 6 hours, and routes are chosen so that we can photograph interesting things enroute. We will typically leave in mid-afternoon on a Friday, and finish up on Sunday afternoon.

Seven Day Photo Tours:

These workshops can take place anywhere in the West and typically start on a Saturday morning and end on a Friday evening. These are jam-packed with photo opportunities and include photo critiques along the way.

In addition, I occasionally offer other types of courses and teach under the auspices of other organizations. Now and then there is a free outing with no formal instruction that attracts a large crowd, but most outings are for small groups where instruction is offered.

To learn more about these workshops, go to There you will see the upcoming schedule at least six months in advance as well as more detail about each type of workshop. From there you can also sign up for my monthly Photography Workshop Newsletter to receive photography tips, as well as discounts on the workshops.
