I’m passionate about helping photographers (you!) become visionary artists. That’s the heartfelt intention behind this website and all of my offerings.

The Work With Me e-courses below are the most personal, direct way to work with me (aside from 1-on-1 mentoring). In each of these e-courses, you’ll collaborate directly with me and an encouraging (never competitive) community of fellow photographers.

My next available e-course is the first one listed below. Scroll through and choose the one that speaks to your heart. Let’s create beauty together!

Or, if you’d prefer a self-paced and individual experience, consider my Self Study e-Courses.

ONE-ON-ONE MENTORING

Are you ready to go deeper with your photography? Are you stuck on creative or technical questions? Instead of trudging through the creative process by yourself, mentoring is your chance to receive personalized feedback, hard-won lessons, and creative insight. My mentoring is based on my twenty years as a curator, photographer, gallerist, portfolio reviewer, educator, and juror. I offer three categories of mentoring - scroll through to see which one is best for you.
