"One of the most powerful yet difficult elements to master in photography is capturing true emotion and feeling. You don't just take a photo with your eyes - you take it with your emotions, your heart, your experiences. There is so much more to taking a great image than just clicking the shutter at the right time. I'll guide you through my creative process and show you how to get the most out of your images to create truly beautiful images that pop off the screen.

In my workshop you will learn how to compose a storytelling image for maximum impact - how to use light, color and perspective to add depth to your everyday moments; and I'll walk you through my editing process and show you my tricks to get the most out of your images. By the end you'll have the tools to create beautiful images that pack an emotional punch. I am so excited to share this journey with you."
