We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations in St Louis .

  • New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month. And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

  • Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

    It was a wonderful event. Looking forward to other options in the future! Ryne was great to learn and chat with as well as Mike. I have the suggestion sheet to work with on my other excursions.
    I enjoyed the hike. This was a new location to me and I had fun. Ryne was knowledgeable about the trail and park. It was good to meet another photographer too.
    Great class learned a lot. The park we used was perfect to go over certain topics!

    Its good and learned few techniques.Definetly recommended one.
    Ryne was an excellent instructor and workshop leader. He was patient, knowledgeable, and a professional in his craft. The workshop was the right amount of time for the walking involved, and doing the mindful exercises, and critiquing our images for improvement.

    Ryne gave me great ideas on how to mentally prepare myself when taking photos. Something for me to work on.

    I really enjoyed the event, at which I was the only attendee. Ryne was friendly and helpful and lent me his gloves as I had left home without mine. I learned a lot about being mindful in my photography and look forward to attending more of Ryne's events.
    It was fun and I took a away a few good tips
    I like that it was a small group. Good exercise. Slow things down. Took time to talk about the assignment.

    It was a very informative class.
    Ryan was incredibly knowledgeable about photography and did a great job of presenting the foundational basics along with technical expertise in various cameras. Was great.
    Ryne was awesome and I learned a ton about using my camera! Would highly recommend the class and look forward to taking future classes

    Title or Location: Oak Alley Plantation, New Orleans
    This was taken from Oak Valley Plantation, New Orleans. It was beautiful with the oaks and the mansion on the background. It was a perfect sunny day and at noon time, the sun rays through the trees were adding beauty to it. So thought of capturing that moment.Date and time: July 5th, 2024, 11.57 AM

    This is the famed Jewel Box in Forest Park (St Louis, MO). It's an art deco structure built in the 1930s and is made of both iron and glass. It houses multiple flower displays including a reflecting pool. It's an amazing place to visit and photograph.

    Title or Location: Walking on a trail in Wildwood Missouri
    I often go out with my camera looking for wildlife or flowers and right on the trail was a field with these wildflowers. This one was taller than all the rest so I laid down on the ground and focused on it and am so pleased with the results. I got a few strange looks but it was worth it! &128514

    Title or Location: Shot at Forest Park in St Louis, MO.
    I woke up early to photograph some wildlife along some of the park?s waterways. While walking along the trail I saw an Egret standing in the water. I immediately went to get into position right along the bank to get a picture of it as I was walking towards the water, this Little Blue Heron jumped out from behind a large rock. I tried not to move and let the heron do its thing. I followed it inconspicuously for about an hour while it moved around the area gathering up its morning meal. This

    Title or Location: Oregon Coast
    I had the pleasure of traveling to the Oregon Coast for a photo workshop. This is one of many shots I took while there, This is a blue hour blend where I took one photo right after sunset and another photo from the same spot hours later to capture the night sky then blended the 2 together. Thanks for looking!

    Title or Location: Titchwell Reserve Norfolk
    I was focusing on a Marsh Harrier and when I put the camera down I saw this Robin perched on the edge of my table. He just stared at me and patiently waited as I reset the camera. I still had my zoom on and almost fell off my seat leaning to get focus. The images of this bird are among my favourite sets....

    Title or Location: Castle Hill,South Island, NZ
    Castle Hill is an amazing location for Landscape and Astro photography. Used a Nikon Z6ii & 20mm 1.8 lens along with a lens warmer plus the Photo Pills planner.The moon was brighter than expected - 5 days old but it actually did us a big favour in lighting up the rocks with the Milky Way core above it. This is the jpeg with no edits.

    Title or Location: Capital Reef National Park, Utah
    I was on a photo workshop in the park with about 8 others. We set up for the night in the Cathedral Overlook campground. At about 3:30 am, the leader got us up and we drove, then hiked to this spot. We took astro shots, then waited in place for a couple hours until early light on the cathedral formations. This is was a merging of the two exposures that created this image.
