Build your confidence - Women's bird photography workshop

This three (3) day photography workshop is designed specifically for women of all levels who desire to take a step forward with their photography. Join other women and build your skills, knowledge and confidence. Learn from one of the best in the industry!

No more difficult to understand photography terminology! During this workshop, I simplify things tremendously so you go home with the skills and knowledge YOU understand and can apply later. Limited to 5 ladies, this workshop will allow plenty of one-on-one experience targeting YOUR needs.

Learn how to create images on the camera and edit them later with great confidence! This workshop also includes time in the classroom editing images created during the workshop. Learn how to edit your images with confidence following simple steps!

If that's not enough, we’ll photograph at a location within minimal walking distance. We’ll park our vehicle, walk a few yards, and we are there!
