Mentoring, Workshops and Education

It is one of my guiding principles as a human being to pursue and share wisdom. As a part of this, I offer mentorships, workshops, portfolio reviews, lectures, and education. I'm available by individual appointment and formally arranged events.

Creative Photography in Missé, France

The Circle of Misse is a special place. I’ve been going to the house at Misse (in the Loire Valley of France) for several years to work on my own projects, so when the guys there and I started to talk about offering a photography course, it got me excited thinking about the possibilities.

It’s more than just the experience of being in the French countryside, which is of course beautiful. And it’s more than the incredible cuisine and local wines that keeps everyone more than full, but truly satisfied and empowered to concentrate on their work. There’s something special about the atmosphere at Circle of Misse, because altogether, it forms a house of creative encouragement – it’s a place to work and grow. A space to feel both safe and challenged.

Building on that spirit, I’m so pleased that we’re now offering a course of photography. I’m happy to invite you to come and join us: drink in the fresh air, soak in the beautiful local sights, breathe in some of the Misse creative energy, and take your photographic abilities to the next level.

Learn more about the course, including dates and rates, on the Circle of Misse Photography Course page.

You can arrange a personal appointment (details on the GUP site), or register directly for a Portfolio Review event where I'll be participating.
