Thank you so much for taking an interest in my workshop. I have been lucky enough to turn my hobby and passion into a successful business. Now, I am offering to teach you how to use your manual settings and take control of your photographs.


If you are anything like me, you purchased an expensive camera because you wanted great photos. Little did I know, learning how to use it would be so overwhelming. Until I learned how to use my camera settings, I was not getting the most out of my camera and my pictures were "ok" not "WOW'! That all changed when I learned and practiced using my camera. 


I invite you to take this opportunity to learn what I know about the manual settings on your camera and how to use them to add impact to your portraits. Workshops are a great way of not only learning new things, but networking and meeting people with similar interests.


The Taking Control Workshop is new or novice photographer, wanting to learn how to use the manual setting on a DSLR camera. The purpose of the workshop is give all participants basic knowledge about using their camera settings in a fun and relaxing environment. This workshop will be very hands-on. You will be practicing what you learn as you are learning it. No stuffy classroom or boring notes! We want to you to walk away ready to practice your new skills and get those amazing shots you have been wanting to capture.
