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

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!
Thanks, I learned how to operate my camera! So much information shared by Greg. I was on info overload after the 1st day, but on the 2nd day everything made sense. Greg you are a great teacher, your course simplified my camera.
I wish I would have taken this class when I was given this camera as a gift from my husband about 5 years agao but I wasn’t aware if it was offered then and I would have probably thought that I could figure the darn thing out! Well... not so! I have learnt so much in the two days of Greg’s teaching. I’m greatfull for the opportunity, was 100% worth... read more
I was one of the many of amateur photographers who probably believed that the way cameras are evolving, its hard not to take a bad picture, yet not all my pictures were clear or it wouldn't allow me to take a photo because my settings wouldn't allow it. Gregs course simplified my camera to make troubleshooting easier. With lots of practice, experimenting... read more
After years of self-taught photography skills though books and You Tube, I finally decided to invest in myself before spending more money on equipment or lenses. Greg's courses were the best investments in my photography I could have made!! Greg's method simplifies the process of the photography and clarifies the use of today's overly complex cameras... read more
Fantastic 2-day course. No matter the level you are at with your photography, there is so much more to learn and discover from others in the industry! Greg's skills, stories, and strategies really will shift you from automatic to manual in no time and then not look back! Thank you for sharing your experiences with us!

I attended Greg's 1st Photo Excursion trip to the Yukon in 2016 and then attended his Intermediate Workshop in 2018. I have never had so much fun learning how to be a better photographer. I traveled from Ont to take the workshop and I learned more in those 2 days than any of the previous courses I have taken. I will keep trying to step outside of my... read more
“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... read more
I have dabbled in taking pictures for years - mostly just the typical touristy ones you take on vacation - never really any good. Then I decided to take Greg's beginner workshop in August of 2016. Well - from then on I was hooked! Greg made it so easy to understand my camera, how it worked, what it could do - what I could do! I've never looked back... read more
“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!
