I offer workshop opportunities for groups or private individuals.
Often, the best way to advance your photography skills at your own natural pace is with one-on-one support. I offer private coaching sessions that can focus on overcoming personal challenges or on developing specific skills, such as mastering drone photography or the wet plate collodion process. One-on-one workshops are available in English, French or Spanish language. Contact me directly to inquire about a one-on-one session.
Occasionally I need assistants for specific project work. Potential candidates should send a CV, letter of motivation and website. Proficiency in image editing software and multiple languages is highly encouraged. I'll keep all top-level candidates on file.
Internship opportunities for college students and graduates are occasionally available. Interns should be prepared to serve part-time for three to five months. Candidates will be selected by their organizational skills and proficiency in editing software. Interns will gain skills in research, project management, and editing.
I've partnered with the Pulitzer Center for educational outreach in dozens of schools. Through the Radius Donation Program, my books are also donated to underfunded libraries. I also lecture at universities and academic conferences, and I am available internationally for speaking engagements.
