Workshops & Tutoring

Photography is a wondrous hobby: you get to explore your environment, develop your appreciation of the details around you, and celebrate your memories with images.

Deepen your skills and passion for photography with the Treehouse through workshops and/or tutoring.

There’s nothing like one-on-one interaction for learning your way through all those buttons and functions on your camera. How it works: we meet up over a coffee, get to know your camera, go over whatever functions or technical aspects you’re most interested in. Then we go shooting. We’ll explore subjects, lighting, and compositions that will get you to immediately put the lessons to use.
