Into The Galaxy

Private Photography Workshops 

In addition to providing group night photography workshops...I also host private  workshops and photography tours all around the world. Even though small group workshops are extremely fun and satisfying, sometimes your schedule doesn't match or you just want my undivided attention. Or maybe you just want your own circle of friends to be there. Either way, we can customize a workshop to your needs.

Private workshops are also the most effective. Having less people around you with no interruptions helps you get comfortable with everything and it also allows us to explore more techniques and locations. 

I can teach everything from setting up your camera to shooting the stars above. I'm also a timelapse specialist if you are looking to get into video! Either way,Private workshops are tailored to your needs so your investment is much more defined and cost-worthy. During these uninterrupted private workshops, I teach you everything I know and my brain is there to pick if you have any questions.

The Sky is the limit! Join me for a customized workshop adventure! Cost is tailored to your workshop but in general pricing at the bottom of the page.
