I offer private instruction to help you hone your skills as a camera artist. All skill levels are welcome. I specialize in the following subjects, which can be combined and personalized:
- Weather instruction for photography, sessions devoted to helping you maximize your chances of being in the right place at the right time. The first step towards making an excellent landscape image is to be where the best light is. My weather tips and light predicting methods are designed to help photographers of all backgrounds -- scientifically inclined or not -- in identifying and forecasting optimal light.
These sessions are offered in person only; however, Jeff also offers meteorology tutorials for photographers over Skype for $100/hour (2-hour minimum). $70/hour for Escaype members.
- In-the-field landESCAPE photo tours are offered in various lengths to help you learn to make the most out of your camera, both in everyday scenes as well as in the heat of the sunset moment. Typical rates for one person private sessions are:
$250 for a three-hour session
$400 for a six-hour, full-afternoon/evening session
$550 for a full day workshop, including sunrise and sunset shoots

I offer a 20% discount for parties of 2 or more that sign up together, and a 25% discount for Escaype clients.
- Digital processing landESCAPE sessions will teach you how to use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop to allow you to turn the files you capture with your camera into the visuals you envision.
These are currently offered as in-person and Skype tutorials, though in-person is preferable. $100/hour, 2-hour minimum. $70/hour for Escaype clients. I do not record my sessions by video, but I do not prohibit you from doing so. You will, of course, be provided with layered PSD files for any images we process together. I also provide two complimentary image critiques, following the session (unlimited within reason for Escaype members).
I teach exposure blending for dynamic range, focus, perspective, and time; Lightroom raw processing, transformations, glow, and other techniques. However, I heavily emphasize developing a vision, rather than textbook-style information on the specific tools used to attain that vision. It is my belief that working with you to develop your own unique processing style is far more meaningful than simply teaching you how to copy mine.
All sessions are fully customizable, and designed with you, around your needs as a growing photographer. Multiple subjects can be combined into a single session.
For all sessions, a minimum 50% deposit is required at the time of booking, and the remainder is due the day before. Please contact Jeff directly via the Contact page, with a more detailed description of what you are most interested in learning so our session can be tailored to best suit your needs.
I look forward to working with you!
