Photography is a tool to help you slow down and notice the miracles of the every day.

Photographers are most successful when they tap into others’ emotions and learn to capture that in their photographs.

Photography can be learned.  And a good photography class teaches both the technical aspects of photography and emotional/artistic side of photography.

A photography workshop should NOT be a factory that teaches you how produce the same images as everyone else- it should teach you the skills to find your own unique style.
