Exciting News!

I am happy and excited to announce that I am going to be offering photography and Photoshop workshops starting in April!

I have teamed up with a Photoshop professional, Cindy Wyckoff, Editor-in-Chief of Scrapbook Dimensions Magazine, and together we will be teaching a workshop to help people enhance both their photography and Photoshop skills.

Over the years I have been asked by so many people how I do certain things, what equipment I use, how I got started, where I learned photography etc. So I've decided that the best way to help both photographers who are looking to get more serious with their talents and pursue it as a career, and even just the mom's who own nice camera's and want to be able to take good photos of their children or pets, is to offer a class that virtually ANYONE can take and find useful. Then I thought, why not take it one step further and show people some simple tools in Photoshop to help with their post production knowledge that will enhance their photos even more!

I just feel like there are so many people out there that are being held back because they don't have a full enough understanding of the basic principles of photography that can make or break a photograph and I want to teach those people the basic foundations of photography that will help them progress and expand on their hobbies and talents.

So, our first workshop is being held on April 6th, 2011 from 10-1 at the South Jordan Noah's. Below is all the information you need to know about it. You can also go to my workshop website,
