Nature Photography Workshops

Are you are looking to increase your proficiency at capturing that decisive moment, getting the exposure that you wanted and producing that long sought after stunning composition?

Well then, you have come to the right place.

Wil and Donna have been teaching weekend and day long nature photography workshops aimed at the beginner and intermediate nature lover for 9 years. Helping students that want to capture their vision on film or digital is a passion for this team.

Locations will vary with the season and workshops are setup to start on Friday evenings and continue through noon on Sunday. There is plenty of time to shoot in the field as well as educational and entertaining classroom sessions that will drive home the skills and techniques that you need to get that once in a lifetime image.

Class size is limited to 10 participants. This allows for more of a one-on-one instructional environment.

See what previous workshop participants had to say about their experience.
