SANTA FE IS TRULY THE LAND OF ENCHANTMENT:
The magical light of the New Mexico High-Desert will be reflected in each and every photo you take while you are here. Santa Fe and the surrounding areas are truly special in their awesome beauty and spacious landscapes. The sky, clouds and crisp light create an atmosphere like few other places on the planet share.

My more than 25 years of living in the Santa Fe area, along with my history as a photo-creative artist and educator will provide you insights into creating compelling imagery!
MAKE THE EFFORT! GIVE ME A CALL! YOU WON’T BE SORRY!
STILL LIFE WORKSHOPS
Creating a poignant still life image is a visual poetic process. Like good poetry less is more and being succinct is penultimate. Color, light, form, and texture are used to create a visual journey that is experientially informative as well as insightful. There are many ways to make a still life, and one does not need to have a well-equipped photo-studio to master the art-from.
Come and take an informative still life journey with me to learn the basic workflow which you can take with you to the beach, the mountains, home or for that matter, wherever strikes your fantasy! Creative process is the main tool one needs to make successful still life imagery.
I TEACH CREATIVE PROCESS!
