Photography/Camera Lessons


Maximize your knowledge and extend your creativity by learning how to effectively use your camera to take your photography to a new level. Ideal for beginner to intermediate photographers or anyone wishing to give the gift of knowledge to friends or family members. I offer individual and group sessions that are hands-on, fun-filled and informative. Take control of your camera, lighting, subject matter, location, lenses and accessories for producing stunning imagery with confidence.
Customized lessons are available to meet your exact needs and your schedule. Portfolio and image critiques are also available.

Want to buy a new camera but don’t know WHAT to buy?

The choices for cameras can be overwhelming. Let Frances guide you through the process of narrowing down the choices so that you get exactly what you will use and enjoy!
Save time and money by not purchasing the wrong camera and accessories and get a great lesson at the same time.
With more than two decades of professional photography experience, Frances can accompany you to the camera store(s) so that you can make this purchase with confidence and ease. Gift certificates available.

Portfolio Reviews

One of the best ways to learn about how to improve your eye and your images is for an honest critique of your images.
Frances is an accredited photo adjudicator and her keen eye and understanding of what makes a great photo can help you continue to take your images to another level after you return home.
Reviews can be on-line or one-on-one. The focus is on your work and how to improve it.

Unleash your creativity and bring more art and ease to everything you do in this half day workshop. Frances shares with you how to create altered photographs without a computer and gives hands-on opportunities to experiment with mixed-media in a wonderful studio and garden setting.
No art experience is required. Be prepared to have FUN!


Custom Portraits

Frances loves people and if you would like quality professional portraits of you and your loved ones let her know. Although she can grab images while showing you to picture-perfect photo locations, her skill as a portrait artist really shines when she can do the job properly and dedicate the time to just that.
If you’d like a quote for a custom made-to-order session do let her know.
