Upcoming Events!

What to Do When Your Boat Won’t Float

When I was teaching on creativeLIVE I shot a boat in the studio. We couldn’t turn all the lights off in the studio so the subject and boat had a lot of unwanted light on her, and I was a bit confused in editing about what to do with the shot. It is neat on […]

Speaking at Country Day School

I decided to start teaching photo retreats, where roughly 10 individuals could spend 2 1/2 days living […]

creativeLIVE Photo Week Images

My second time at the creativeLIVE studios was just amazing, as I knew it would be. To be around such hard working and dedicated people is truly a gift and I do not take it for granted. The best part? Getting to meet the students and spending time with them outside of the classroom. We […]

The first was teaching on creativeLIVE where I got to spend 3 days with the students in the class, morning til night (often until midnight shooting in our hotel rooms). The next experience was filming my new Framed show The Concept […]

Photoshop World: Adobe Keynote!

I won’t make this too long and mushy except to say that I am hugely excited about an email that I got from Adobe a couple of weeks ago asking me to be a part of their keynote speech at Photoshop World, a conference about all things Photoshop, in September. The keynote speech is the […]

How and Why ‘How’ Became the New ‘Why’

Education is one of my favorite things in the world. To learn, to teach, it doesn’t matter. I love helping myself grow and I love helping others grow. That is why I am so attached to teaching workshops, giving lectures, and any other facet of education. I have spoken to a lot of different types […]
