Can’t find a photography or Photoshop course with a schedule that meets your needs? We will custom tailor a private or group workshop for you either at our studio or a location of your choice.

We teach to all skill levels in a variety of topics from basic camera operation to photography tips and techniques for specific situations. Individual workshops are a great way to refine your photography process and learn the answers to your specific questions. Group workshops are perfect for professional development or lunch-and-learn programs. Handouts are included when applicable.

We recommend a one to a one and one-half hour session to start. It is helpful to know the answers to these questions so that we are prepared to present an efficient workshop with handouts:

    1. What you already know and what you would like to learn?
    2. What do you like to photograph?
    3. What equipment you have (camera, lens, flash – brand and model)?
    4. How much time would you like to devote to this learning experience?

“Everyone here at Erland is impressed with the lessons I learned. They even wrote blog posts about it. Thank you again for your time and for teaching me the tricks of the trade!” Danielle Pikus, Graphics Coordinator Erland Construction

Creating photographs is largely a solo experience. After a while you may realize you’re the only decision maker building your portfolio. If you are in need of creative or technical feedback on your work and progression, an individual portfolio review is the answer. How do you want to grow as a photographer? We can help you develop your vision, edit your portfolio, hone in on your key themes and subjects, and identify techniques and approaches, which are working and those that are not. We invite both digital and printed portfolios for review.
