As a Minnesota based photographer and artist, Wayne focuses his skills and energies on landscape, cityscape and architectural fine art photography.

His best work comes from images first painted in his mind. He mulls over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture, he takes action. The result is images that deeply touch a person's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams.

His images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary. The images are used to communicate their shared vision and values. Book, magazine and calendar publishers have featured his images in their publications and on their covers. His photographs also grace and enhance the décor of many fine homes.

Please feel free to browse all his images at his web site www.LetThereBeLightFineArt.com

I enjoy the creative process, turning a vision into a work of art. Nothing beats moving people with the marvel of the art you have created.

    Wayne was an incredible photography instructor. He helped me to really think about the photos I was taking in different ways and helped to refine my photography skills. He was encouraging while not being afraid to push me to be better! Because of his lessons, I was able to confidently start my own business knowing I have the skills needed to take my photography farther! I would recommend him to anyone looking to take their photography to the next level!

    Working with Wayne has made me a better photographer in just months. He is very professional and knowledgeable in his craft. I felt very comfortable with Wayne immediately. His critique, guidance, and advice has taught me how to produce high quality images. I highly recommend lessons with Wayne if photography is an interest to you.

    He was patient with me and didn’t mind having to repeat over and over concepts that I just couldn’t keep straight!

    Frequently asked questions

    I spend time with my students getting to know their skills, then I get to know their dreams and passions for their photography.  All of my classes are designed specifically for the individual student.

    I have been teaching photographers for several years now with incredible results. Taking students from rank amatur all the way to the professional level.  

    A charger flat rate of a $79 / hr for private lessons.  

    If the student pays for 5 hours or more in advance, they get a rate of $75 / hr.

    I have so many fans following my photography and then they started begging me for lessons to teach my techniques and style. 

    From beginner all the way to professional.

    Recently I've been doing photography tours for Capella Tower in the Minneapolis.  They manage all the details of the large event and I can just be the teacher of the students as we walk around the city.

    Read your camera manual and get to know her camera exceedingly well.

    Students need to really think about what they want to get out of their photography.  The clearer they are with their weaknesses and knowing exactly what they want to learn,  the easier it will be to build those skills quickly.
