I'm a landscape photographer, workshop guide/instructor and ebook author. I conduct yearly workshops in the Teton Mountains of Jackson Hole, Wyoming (USA) and in Arches National Park in Moab, Utah (USA). In addition to group photography workshops, I conduct private 1-on-1 photography workshops or smaller 2-3 person workshops.
During my photography workshops, I take my group out at night to photograph the Milky Way. In these workshops I conduct two to three Photoshop and Lightroom Milky Way post processing sessions so you may learn how to really make the Milky Way pop in your photos. This also includes classroom instruction on stacking Milky Way images with Starry Landscape Stacker for the Mac and Sequator for the PC.
I'm the author of three ebooks 1) "Grand Teton National Park - A Photographer's Site Shooting Guide 1" 2) "Arches National Park - A Photographer's Site Shooting Guide I" and 3) "A Photographer's Milky Way Processing Guide - A Photoshop Howto."
In these photography shooting guides, I make extensive use of Google satellite map marker where for each site in the ebook I have an associated photo. The reader simply clicks on any photo and the web browser immediately opens the webpage for the Google satellite map marker whereby the reader may easily see the exact site I stood for the photo but more importantly see the road system to the exact site.
In July 2013 I participated in the millennial celebration of the historic Moulton Barns in Jackson Hole, WY (USA) by donating two 24x36 inch canvas prints for auction for the preservation of these two barns.
Locally, in my current home town, I provide presentations of my Jackson Hole photos from time to time to the photography club and also Photoshop & Lightroom Milky Way post processing.
Landscape Photography Magazine selected one of my photos of a sunrise on the Grand Teton among many photos submitted by numerous fine art photographers as the photo of the week ... http://landscapephotographymagazine.com/2014/hedricks-pond-overlook-jackson-hole-wyoming-usa/
