I enjoyed your new age thought processes” I’ve never seen a professional photographer (or anyone) so willing to share info regarding photography! Amazing! Your passion for this is contagious and appreciated. I love taking pictures, but I love it even more now!Jennifer Lewans
“Now I feel completely empowered” I felt fairly comfortable with my camera before the workshop, but now I feel completely empowered. Thank you so much for all the knowledge, hints, answers and humour! My A-ha moments – backlighting, single shot focusing and tips for photographing kids.Laura Jensen
“Individualized learning experiences” This was a fantastic experience, I can’t believe how much info was given in two days! I loved the hands on approach and the individualized learning experiences that were given.Jodie Bialkoski
More from this two days than my college class!” Even after instruction in a college course on photography about the technical aspects of a camera, I did not know why I was changing things to make a the picture better. After Gregs Intro workshop, I now know why I am doing what I am doing with my camera.Nicole Olfert

This class was exactly what I needed to get to know my camera. I was intimidated with the Manual feature and can now use this with ease. Greg made the 2 days fun and informative. It was a great learning experience and I loved every minute of it! Thanks Greg!
I really enjoyed the workshop, Greg is a entertaining humorous speaker. Everything was presented as simple possible to make sure that we all could grasp The concepts and retain it all. I am definitely considering taking the more advanced course and I am insisting that my wife take the introductory course. Over all I would highly recommend it to anyone... read more
After 3 years of having my camera & 2 years of YouTube tutorials I finally decided enough was enough and I really wanted to learn how to use my camera properly. I had been shooting in automatic mode for years and thinking I was a good photographer. The first 3 hours of the course blew my mind so the rest of the weekend exploded my mind with the... read more
Greg was an awesome instructor. Even though being an accomplished professional photographer he could empathize with us his students and knew our challenges being amateurs with our equipment and our skills. He instructed with much humour, repetition, one on one assistance, encouragement and patience. He shared his own life experiences (stories) through... read more
I just attended Greg's beginner class and loved it! I have never known how to use my camera other then just pointing, shooting and hoping for the best. It has been too overwhelming for me to learn in the past but Greg's class was perfect. Not too much information, just the right amount for a first time class and he was also very entertaining. I ended... read more
Absolutely amazing course! I learned more in 48 hours than I did in 5 years of just "playing around" on my camera! This gave me the confidence to take it off Auto and start having control and being more creative!! I would HIGHLY recommend to everyone who has a DSLR camera!! Thank you Greg for an amazing course!!
This was a great workshop and I learned exactly what I was hoping too! Greg's knowledge and humor made it an enjoyable weekend. Im looking forward to attending my next workshop sometime in the future!
I learned to not be afraid of my camera. Great workshop, easy to listen to. Had lots of ah ha moments . Definitely will take an intermediate course. Absolutely worth it.
The course was as entertaining and fun as it was informative! Loved every minute of it and I am so happy that I now understand my camera more! I'm excited to take what I learned and get better photos!
“I know WHY and WHEN to adjust the camera settings!”
For over a year I kept missing out on Greg’s workshop for one reason or another. I was finally able to get in on one this past August and it was SO worth the wait! When I walked into the workshop I had, in frustration, only been using my camera in the fully automatic mode and had given up using any of the other settings. At the workshop I learned what I was doing wrong with my camera and now know how to make adjustments to settings on the camera to get the shot I want, instead of just hoping it would turn out.
Previous to the workshop if I got a good shot it was pure luck, I didn’t know why it worked out or alternatively why it didn’t. Now I feel much more comfortable with my camera and am using it fully manual (no presets for me anymore!). I am able to adjust ISO, aperture, shutter speed, etc and know WHY I’m adjusting them and WHEN to adjust them! I am thrilled with the results I am getting. I no longer feel intimidated by using the manual setting and actually like it more now as I have control over what the camera is doing.
The workshop itself was very enjoyable and had such a relaxed atmosphere to it, open to questions and inquiries. Being able to go out and do some hands on learning during the workshop was great as well because you could have any problems addressed right then and there so you learned instantly by “doing”.
Greg is very passionate about what he does and that comes across. He makes the workshop a lot of fun yet keeps it so informative at the same time. Even the most basic questions from novices like me were answered with patience and a willingness to share his vast knowledge. A bonus is seeing his beautiful work and hearing storm chasing stories!
To wrap it up I got everything I wanted from the workshop and more. I cannot recommend this workshop enough, if you have any desire at all to improve your photography skills or learn more about how your camera works please don’t think twice. Sign up for a workshop now!
