Private Landscape Workshop

South-central Arizona offers stunning scenery while being very accessible with just short drives from the Phoenix metropolitan area.  It is a great location for a private landscape workshop.  Learn from a lifelong landscape photographer in an area that he knows intimately.  I will hold nothing back and show you exactly how I create critically acclaimed landscape photographs all around the world.  This is a private workshop rather than group sessions to better give each individual client exactly what they need to take their photography to the next level.  All sessions will be by appointment and will be custom tailored to your specific need.  Your session can be a classroom only session, a field only session, or both.  You can request one on one time in four hour time blocks, morning or afternoon sessions as well as specify exactly what your goals are from either a skill or a knowledge standpoint.  I am qualified on Nikon, Canon, Sony, and Phase One systems and can help you get the most from any brand.  For field sessions,  emphasis will be placed on the students getting maximum photographic opportunities.  If you choose to include a classroom session, I will tailor the instructional session to your specific need, whether it be photographic technique, photographic theory, or image processing in Photoshop, RAW conversion in Adobe Camera Raw, or other items as per your request.  Other locations available on request.

Phoenix, Arizona is a very popular winter home for many species of waterfowl.  By late December, most molt into their most beautiful breeding plumage and if you know the proper techniques and the proper spots, they can be photographed at very close range.  Other locations available upon request

Peiker in a one on one environment.  I will hold nothing back and show you exactly how I create my duck photographs and insure that you get some outstanding shots.  This is a private DuckShop rather than group sessions to better give each individual client exactly what they need to take their photography to the next level.  All sessions will be by appointment and will be custom tailored to your specific need.  Your session can be a classroom only session, a field only session, or both.  You can request one on one time in four hour time blocks, morning or afternoon sessions as well as specify exactly what your goals are from either a skill or a knowledge standpoint.  I am qualified on both Nikon and Canon systems and can help you get the most from either brand.  Depending on which species you are after, we can go to various places.  For field sessions,  emphasis will be placed on the students getting maximum photographic opportunities.  If you choose to include a classroom session, I will tailor the instructional session to your specific need, whether it be photographic technique, photographic theory, or image processing in Photoshop, RAW conversion in Adobe Camera Raw, or other items as per your request.
