1on1 Workshops are back!


This last year has been a mess for everyone so it’s exciting to have a few one-on-one in-person workshops picking back up again. Last week I spent a half-day with a mother and daughter exploring some of Chicago’s best downtown locations. First up, the Art Institute of Chicago. I’ve photographed here many times, particularly the […]

Student Images from our 2019 Chicago Workshop

For the third year, we led a workshop in Chicago. This has become one of our favorite workshops and a city that is very popular with attendees.

Student Images from our 2019 New York Workshop

After each workshop, we like to share some images from our students.

Bright and early for our final day in Paris with a sunrise at Trocadero, just west of the Eiffel Tower across the Seine. The lights on the Tower aren’t lit in the morning so it has a bit of a different feel than what we’re used to at sunset and evening. I decided to play […]
