I feel more confident in using my camera! My photos have shown drastic improvement and I cannot wait to keep getting better! Thank you so much Andrew!
What an investment the Big Bend photography workshop in April was for both me and my family. It was a gift to escape the wonderful repetition of life with young kids to focus on my own creative outlet for a weekend, meet new people and create a comfort with my camera that I’ve never had before. Andrew similtaneously teaches the working parts of the camera and inspires the vision to recreate the beauty that your naked eye perceives. I left with new friendships, some beautiful landscape and milky way shots and great memories. I am thankful for my improved ability to capture the different stages of my kids’ childhood and the beautiful places we visit.
I had a terrific time in Scotland. The itinerary you put together was fantastic!!! We were able to see and experience everything you hear about Scotland and get some terrific photos to go along with it. You were a wonderful host and extremely helpful with giving pointers and providing additional perspective so that I got the most out of the trip and improved my photography skills. I look forward to taking another workshop in the future.
I began the weekend as someone who was completely stuck on the auto settings of my camera. I’ve had a goal for years to get onto manual and walked away with a much improved confidence in the manual setting. My photos from the weekend are stunning and I enjoyed learning how to better use the camera, read and understand the camera histogram, and use lightroom to optimize my post editing skills. Andrew was very patient and has a wonderful way of explaining and teaching. He is passionate about nature and photography and clearly wants everyone else to love it as much as him.

I had an amazing time at the Big Bend National Park workshop. Andrew goes well above expected teaching and accommodated all levels of learning. He evaluated, addressed, and tailored his teaching to each person’s specific needs. He was flexible and open to the group and constantly assessing our needs as a group. I thoroughly enjoyed hiking, shooting, learning, making friends, and laughing in a fun supportive environment.

I had a great time shooting with you in Teton, learned quite a lot (try to do more tele work now!)In those few days I learned a huge amount not just about shooting, but postprocessing and how to scout locations and how to best prepare and setup a shooting.Thanks! I hope I get a chance to repeat such a course with you in a new location.Best wishes to you your lovely wife, and Islay.
I am so pleased with the private workshop I took with Andrew! Our time together was exactly what I had wanted. His time planning a custom outline based on my requests was apparent and exceeded my expectations. What I appreciated most was his transparency in sharing from his personal experience evolving his photography business over the years. Andrew is an excellent teacher—open to any and all questions and always thoughtful in his answers. It was one of the best investments I have made in my business this year. I am already looking forward to taking another one of his workshops in the future!

Andrew,Great workshop!! Your help with settings worked beautifully and the repetitive shooting ‘forced’ me to test my connection with the new camera. I feel verrrry comfortable now. It was hard to make it home... I kept stopping to take more pictures... fantastic blue bonnets north of Junction.Thanks again for your imparted knowledge and your enthusiasm. See you again!
I thoroughly enjoyed your class and feel like I’m finally understanding how to shoot in the manual mode. You took something very intimidating and made it approachable and understandable. I really liked the small class setting, which made it more comfortable and easier to ask questions. Your advice to practice daily for 5 minutes- is so simple and so do-able in order to get better. Thank you!
Thanks Andrew! I had a great time and learned some cool things I didn’t know about. I had a great time and hope to sign up for some of your other classes!

The private workshop with Andrew is an honest and in-depth look into the world of a professional photographer. You can center the class around what you need to focus on, or he can take the reins himself. Either way, you will walk away with all of your questions answered and feeling more confident about what you need to do to progress. An added bonus is that Andrew and his wife Ellen are warm, friendly and down to earth people. He created an environment of open conversation and no question too small! All in all a wonderful and worthwhile experience!
Thanks Andrew, your class was awesome!
I had the pleasure of doing a workshop with Andrew in one of his favorite places, Big Bend National Park. His passion for instruction was evinced through the enhanced quality of the photography I brought home. I learned an immense amount about landscape shooting and astrophotography throughout our weekend and now visualize these styles in a new light. He helped me learn many new things about my camera and we also discussed the joy of shooting timelapse when the lighting on your preferred subject doesn’t appear as you might have hoped or planned. The Big Bend workshop was something that I’ll remember for the rest of my life and my ability as a photographer has been greatly strengthened through Andrew’s help and guidance. I look forward to a future workshop!!

I’ve been to a number of photo tours/workshops over the years, and you are without a doubt one of the most congenial and friendly workshop hosts I’ve met. You accurately evaluated the skill levels and needs of the group and adjusted your input to match our needs. Your knowledge of the Telluride area was spot-on.
Thanks Andrew!! The class was informative, interesting and thoroughly enjoyable. Thanks so much for sharing your tips, advice, and experience.
