I am thrilled to be an instructor of photography at the world-renowned Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois. Like many in the Chicago area, my earliest memories of to the Morton Arboretum dates back to childhood with school field trips. Then in the 1990's, the Arboretum was a client of my advertising photography studio. In January 2023, I begin the next chapter of my affiliation with the Arboretum in the most profound and meaningful way.


As a photographic instructor, I can finally share with like-minded others, my passion for capturing the world around us through the impact of a photograph. We'll explore topics that range from technical to artistic at all skill levels.


My first course of 2023 is entitled, "Black, White, and 50K Shades of Gray" and will focus on the process of producing stunning black and white images from color captures. Click here to register for the course and I'll look forward to seeing you there!
