Upcoming Photography Workshops


I just wanted to thank you two for an awesome workshop. I thought you guys were terrific. You’re both incredibly knowledgeable about seascape photography and the area – and better yet – awesome instructors. I’d consider taking another workshop just to hangout and see more locations. I especially appreciated that you guys were always available for questions both during the workshop and afterwards. Dinner and lunches were great too. I learned a ton and got all my questions answered. I loved that we were out all day! Best workshop I’ve taken

This was an outstanding trip for multiple reasons. The cost was reasonable, and the instructor to participant ratio was perfect! You guys do a great job at reading our levels and “feeding” us at the right pace….POSITIVE support with great tips and encouragement. I would definitely take another workshop.

Thank you for a great class. Both of you were so good at explaining things and so willing to help. Not only are you both good at explaining things, but you are both polite, knowledgeable, and helpful. My favorite part of the workshop was the one-on-one attention. It was so much better than a previous class I had taken. Thanks. A+ from this teacher.

Josh and Jim were able to work with each person’s needs individually, which is great. Explanations were spot on; [Josh and Jim] worked well together; there was excellent balance of talk time versus shoot time, and the 1 on 1 time was excellent…I’ve paid for classes that ended up being a slide show of the instructor’s work with explanations of the subject matter, etc. Our workshop didn’t do that. It was far more useful than most classes I’ve taken. Josh and Jim, you’ve both really shown me that I don’t need to rush out and buy a full frame and L glass. Your work is crazy beautiful and you’ve proven that it’s the photographer not the equipment. I also loved that the class was only 8 people; there was ample time for everyone to get lens time with you both, and all of the information was usable immediately. I will definitely take another workshop with you.
