Nature Photography Workshops
 The Art of Discovery
by Gary D. Tonhouse


The camera captures light .. Our Minds Capture Images

Capturing fleeting moments in time
Photography is 90% seeing and 10% Photographing.

Helping to create an appreciation .. awareness and concern
 for our environment through photography and education.

My Nature, Landscape and Zoo Photography Workshops are designed for photographers at all levels who wish to improve their visual literacy.

Nature's diversity offers photographers more than one right answer to every photo opportunity. 
These workshops will show you how to find those moments that make a photograph a work of art, 
and not just a
The best way to learn is by example, therefore these workshops focus on hands-on learning.

Students in these workshops will learn more by doing than simply being instructed.

If one is not feeling, seeing and touching, it is harder for individuals to reach their highest potential.
I like to emphasize that you do not need elaborate or expensive equipment for these workshops. Most of the subject matter can be easily photographed using any reasonable equipment, even 
by a beginner. 
Don't ever feel intimidated by individuals that have expensive camera equipment. 
What matters most is 6 inches behind the camera.
The most valuable assets you will bring to this workshop is 
your imagination,  energy and
positive attitude

All workshops have early morning and late afternoon field trips; space is limited to no more than 
6 people.

These workshops are geared toward you the participant. The small class size allows us to focus on each individual's needs. We do photograph during the workshops, to allow students the chance 
to see
what equipment works best for a given situation and for demonstrations.

I will arrange these trips to meet your photographic and educational needs and desires. 
I will  talk with you personally beforehand to determine what exactly you want to get out of your 
workshop and then plan your time with me accordingly.

All workshops are cancelled until further notice!!!

I fell on May 2, 2002 and broke my hip in two places.
The operation to repair the hip went fine. However 25
minutes after the operation in the recovery room, my 
system went into septic shock. 
At that point I was in serious trouble.
Today I am home recovering and all seems to be going well.
It will be sometime before I am able to return to giving my photography workshops.
Please check back often.

As of October 28, 2004, I am still home in the recovery process.

Thank you
