For years people asked if they could shoot with me. Now you can join me in a series of hands-on workshops on studio and infrared photography where you’ll see how I work and the cameras and lenses I use. You’ll learn to use techniques I’ve written about in magazines and books. During these informal but hands-on sessions you can ask questions and shoot photographs for your portfolio, for a fully interactive experience.

It kicks off with a discussion of the concepts of boudoir & glamour photography, then move into demonstrations on how to use speedlights and then inexpensive studio lights to create boudoir and glamour images in the studio.

Last Chance Infrared at the Meadows. September 2015. At McCabe Meadows in Parker, Colorado. A two-hour hand-on workshop on making digital infrared images with your own cameras. We’ll kick off with a brief discussion of capture options, then we’ll walk around the lake and make IR photographs. Each participant will be able to shoot using different kinds of filters for making infrared images with your own camera.


I’ll also demonstrate a comparison of images made using a IR-converted. Please bring your camera—SLR or mirrorless— and a tripod because some of the filters will produce really slow shutter speeds. Fee is $50. Workshop is limited to a maximum and minimum of three participants. If you have any questions, click the Contact page and ask.
