Local Workshops in Victoria, BC


As a professional photographer, I travel a lot. But I'm a BC girl at heart and love to be at home, in the forest, by the ocean, with my family. When I am not traveling, I love to teach where I am. If you're looking to grow (or simply begin) your skills with your camera, I'd be honoured to work with you, or a group with your friends or co-workers, to launch that journey and set you up for success. I'd like to think my images are my strongest skill, but the truth is, I am a born teacher. I am personable, fun, easy-to-understand, and can cater any of the below to focus on your personal goals.





Focus: Private Lessons

I come to your house, and we spend 90 minutes to 2 hours working with your camera. It's fun, interactive, hands-on, and you'll gain real, concrete understanding of your camera, your options, and your new goals. Whether it's getting off of Auto, learning all those buttons, beginning to shoot in manual, looking at advanced metering and unique or tricky light, playing with long exposure, or a private lesson catering to all things travel, portrait, or most any other genre, I'm here to guide you through it. The proof will be in  your photos even the same day. By working hands-on with  me, we can be focused and see results immediately - and you will retain more of the information than taking a course, watching youtube, or trying to read those dreadful manuals. 

Can make an excellent birthday, father or mother's day, wedding, or new baby gift. Really, any milestone - a tailored private lesson is bound to launch any budding photographer to new levels. This can also be my  Mama Photo Bootcamp talk, but private.
