As we deal with the current risks of the COVID-19 virus it is important to follow the latest CDC guidelines and government policies to stay safe and limit/slow down the spread of the virus.

I am excited to be once again teaching photography classes out at the Arboretum. 


As a nature photographer, the Arboretum offers just about every type of subject matter.  My classes are designed to help you get the most out of your visits.


This year we will be offering some fun and interesting classes out at Hot Sams Foto Park. 

Topics include fire dancers, large scale still life, and light painting.  Each of these classes will provide both a lecture and hands-on.


For 2020, we are heading back to both Ely, MN for our fall workshop and to the Badlands of South Dakota for our early winter workshop.

Dr. Mike Shaw and I are also teaming up to offer a weekend long workshop at the Arboretum.

New for 2020, I will be teaching classes at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts.

This is an amazing facility, and I look forward to working with the staff to offer some new exciting workshops.


Once again, I will be offering some free lectures and photo hikes at the refuge.

In October, I will be presenting a new program on photographing America's Public Lands.

Now you can attend some of my lectures from the comfort of your own computer, tablet, or mobile device.

New for this year, I will be offering some of my lectures as free webinars.
