Niagara School of Imaging

I have been chosen to be one of the instructors at the prestigious Niagara School of Imaging, based at Brock University campus in St. Catherines Ontario. My course is entitled ‘Nature Photography in the Digital Age’.

Spring wildflowers.

Students will have the opportunity to make pictures during field sessions and process them for sharing and critique during classroom sessions. In the field I will offer advice on composition and technique and image critique as well as providing guidelines, tips and suggestions for getting the most from your digital SLR. In the classroom I’ll discuss managing and optimizing the images with your computer.
