    Met Richard at the Botanic Gardens and had an on site one on one training session. He brought some of his gear so that I could try and advised and instructed on better ways to create photos. I learned so much!

    Great ono-on-one session. Richard has a pleasant manner that quickly found ways to improve my technical and artistic skills. He showed me some obvious camera settings I was over-looking and he suggested edits to my good pictures to make them better.

I have been a National Geographic Photographer for over 25 years, and lectured and traveled widely and love teaching about the the art of previsualization and post production of raw digital files.

Love to share my passion about travel and photography with my students and excite them to explore their backyard or the wider world thru the lens of their cameras. Photography is fun but it is also about discovery!
