Denver Photography Lessons & Workshops

A little training goes a long way...

You may choose from any of the "pre designed" courses OR we can customize your class to focus on whatever skill set you need to improve.

Questions and comments are encouraged through the entire class. I try to effectively convey the "how and why" of photography, not just "click by numbers" approach.  In other words, I want you to know why a technique works so that you can apply that technique beyond the examples from class.  
"Teach a man to fish…. "   right? 

I look forward to helping you reach your artistic goals. If you would like to evaluate my work, please visit GeneTewksbury.com

Better Composition

    • Composition is the foundation of good photography.  You can take a technically perfect photograph (not so hard with today's cameras), with amazing details, stellar contrast, rich dynamic range and color…. and still the image is not worth a hill of beans without good composition.  It's not interesting, it's not engaging and nobody likes it.  On the other hand, one can take a photograph full of grain, terrible light, lack of detail and yet it's lovely.  It captures the imagination.  It pulls the viewer in and takes them on a journey.  How can this be?  It's the power of Composition!

Your Instructor


My goal is always to teach WHY a technique works, not just HOW it's done. This is the fundamental difference between Big Sun training and most other photo courses who teach only by route. By learning the reasons behind the practice, you are able to move forward on your own, breaking away from the mundane and expanding your creativity.

 As with any service you should research what/whom you are investing in to ensure the right fit.

I encourage you to review my own work before signing up for any photography class.
