Jeff Parker’s one-day Nature Photography 101 Workshop 2023 is perfect for both intermediate and beginning photographers and anyone else wanting to strengthen their digital photography foundation.

Tired of the good images getting away? Still puzzling out aspects of your DSLR or mirrorless camera or terms like hyperfocal distance, white balance, RAW, crop sensor, etc. ? 

Join Jeff and Mary O at their New Mexico nature preserve, Rancho Colibri for this Nature Photography 101 Workshop in April 2023!

Intermediate skills?  ~ You’ll benefit by filling in gaps in your knowledge base  — only you know what those gaps include, but whatever they are don’t let them keep you from rising to your next level of expertise!

Now’s your chance to firm up that foundation.  Plus, the workshop also includes lessons and activities to help you hone your artistic and creative approaches.

Beginner?  ~ Learn why Jeff shoots in RAW (and why you should, too), what’s up with exposure compensation, along with some artistic elements you may have never considered.  And, of course, plenty more that will build a strong base of digital-photography know how.

Both beginner & intermediate nature photographers will benefit from Jeff’s warm & friendly teaching style that encourages you to ask all the questions you want (remember: if you have a question someone else probably does too!).  

Enjoy structured instruction and plenty of hands-on activities to reinforce what you’re learning. We believe that folks learn best by doing so all of Jeff’s instruction is followed by you trying it out, you and your camera enjoying the confines of this country setting.

And while you’re out there doing the exercises — trying out what you learn — Jeff visits each photographer to provide plenty of one-to-one guidance.
