Take your photography skills, passion for the outdoors, and love for adventure to the next level on Colleen's exciting, educational, and inspirational photography workshops!

 

My workshops aim to help you develop your skills, techniques, and approaches, both technically and creatively, to enable YOU to become a more competent, confident photographer. Combining my enthusiasm for continuously learning and helping others, all workshop activities are focused on delivering a photography education--giving photographers a supportive environment to explore and learn more about their craft, their surroundings, their own creative talents, and life, not on making a portfolio of trophy images of iconic locations.

 

This is a different approach than many photography workshops out there. My workshops focus on developing your internal artist, interpreting external variables, and establishing a connection with the land in personally-meaningful ways. Those seeking specific direction as to where to put the tripod holes in iconic locations, what lens to use, what settings to use, etc. and chasing so-called "good light" will likely not appreciate the personal style and creative vision approach I encourage and therefore may enjoy photo tours/"workshops" with other guides instead. Please check out my Teaching Philosophy page for more information about how I approach workshops.

 

I operate my workshops on public lands under the required Commercial Use Authorizations (National Park Service) and other permits as stipulated by the USFS, BLM, state parks, and other managing organizations. I also conduct my workshops following Leave No Trace principles and in observation of all site rules and regulations. To ensure your safety on my trips, I maintain First Aid/CPR/AED certification.

 

I am grateful to Singh-Ray Filters, for sponsoring my workshops starting in 2019! Students will have the ability to test out their filters on my workshops and receive a special discount on gear.
