Private Photography Lessons
Learn & Master your craft…
Sometimes we just want to have someone show us the “how-to” of photography. I always learn better by doing rather than reading and I know many of you do too.
From day 1 of owning your camera to advanced topics and planning your photo trips, you should take a look at the sessions I offer. We can cover a lot of ground.
Because my private sessions are tailored specifically to you, as such, they are more relevant and comprehensive especially since you have my complete attention. We will cover the many aspects of photography at a pace most comfortable for you.
When you select a session you can: pick a convenient date, location, even specify particular subjects. Best efforts are made to make learning convenient for you.
Visit my Private Lessons page for more information on topics and session availability.
Periodically I also do small group Workshops for up 6 individuals.

I did the iPhone Advanced course with John. Although there is a plethora of information on the internet, having John show me in real life, using my iPhone’s camera with the Lightroom CC App, how to “make” photographs was amazing! Coordinating it with my other photography with Lightroom is a breeze. Going forward I can create an amazing image immediately with the camera in my pocket! Money well spent…

Out in the little hamlet of Inverness California, behind an old market, sits an old fishing boat aptly named the "Point Reyes". When I first laid eyes on her back in early 2001 she showed signs of neglect and to the untrained eye looked like she could...
