(Course Description)

"Project Muse" | The Process of Inspiration and Awakening the Artist Within is a one on one masterclass, able to be taken from anywhere in the world and, for the most part, at your convenience.

This course consists of several one on one online chat sessions with myself and is chalk full of surprises, which I believe are so important in the process of creating. It also includes a very extensive package, via mail, for you to learn from and follow along with, in your own time. The in-the-mail 'kit' comprises much of the masterclass. Our individualized chat sessions add to the extensive package sent, and are where we get to interact, one on one. The chat sessions will tackle any problems or issues (also any questions) that you may be having, offering help to you in your journey as an artist, both personally and professionally, at whatever level.

Project Muse is a course that explores (through my own life and work experiences, techniques, exercises, and approaches - the ones I've utilized over the last 6 years) how to find and then master yourself as an artist and person and how to continue to learn and grow. It's a course that shows you not only how to become inspired, but also fulfilled in your own creativity, whether you are a commercial photographer or fine artist, whatever your goals may be.

It's a very spirituality based and hands on approach to not only mastering your camera and becoming a better photographer, but also an immersion in who you are as a person and what that means for your vision and message and art. Further: how to apply that to your photography and get it back out of your camera and lenses.

This is not an Fstop class. This is a life class for Photographers.

Simply put, "Project Muse" is a journey back to yourself, through so many new doors. It's focused around you and your camera, but it goes so much further. You could also consider it a photographically focused ‘life detox’.

*Beyond the process of inspiration, Project Muse will include my natural lighting techniques (I work 100% on location and in every condition possible) and further insights into getting the most from your shoots, from concept to your model.

*Lastly, Project Muse will also offer an intro into my processing techniques and recommendations. We will also venture into finding your own techniques.

The rest is a surprise.

This is not a class you've taken before and that's a very, very good thing.

**OF NOTE: I recommend anyone wanting to take this course to have already followed myself and my work for at least 3 months, so that you already have a basic understanding of how I work, in front of as well as behind the camera.


Q: Do I need a fancy schmancy camera to take this class?
A: I couldn't care less about the camera that you have. This isn't that class and, in fact, by the end of the course you aren't going to care, either.

Q: I notice some of your offerings have been women only. Is Project Muse something that a guy can take?
A: You bet.

Q: What do I need to bring with or make sure I have before I sign up?
A: Just bring your heart and own any sort of camera. Truly, that's all. We are getting back to basics.

Q: Is this a class that explores many areas of my life?
A: Yes.

Q: Is this class unconventional?
A: Absolutely.


Enrollment for this class is very limited.

I will be taking deposits to hold places now. The other half being due after the 1st of January, 2012.

Project Muse will be offered (this year is already booked) in February/March 2012.
