WORKSHOPS & MENTORING
What a joy it is discovering the unique details and qualities of still things like food, handmade goods and things around your own home. Food, product and still life photography can bring a lot of challenge, but so much enjoyment as you discover your own photographic voice.
Stories can come alive with a great photo, and so many people want to learn how to capture those beautiful moments and details with their own camera. With devoted time and practice, your photographic style and ability can only grow.
In a commercial sense, businesses thrive with great images that show the value, quality and purpose of what your business has to offer. Whether you are just starting to learn photography, or have had an interest for a long time, I would love to help you!
