Here are brief summaries of the workshops I teach:

A Natural Eye is the core workshop I have been teaching since 1995. The premise is to surround you with different ways of seeing the natural world, and then bring the skills of photography up to those eyes, helping you get what you see into an image. The week long Natural Eye workshop weaves together daily eye-opening activities and ideas, fine-tuning technical sessions, time in the field to try the ideas, and daily review of images. All photographers with a working knowledge of their cameras are welcome in this workshop. To participate in the image reviews, you also need to have an understanding of the digital workflow.(See below.)
The Expressive Landscape is a shorter workshop, often starting on a Friday evening or Saturday morning, and ending Sunday afternoon. It puts the emphasis on conveying as many of the ideas from the week workshop – both creative and technical, and daily time to try the ideas, but with fewer sessions to review images. Depending on the location and length, there will be one or two image review sessions. All photographers are welcome in this workshop. To participate in the image reviews, you need to have a working knowledge of your camera and an understanding of the digital workflow. (See below.) 

Details on the digital workflow:  To participate in image reviews, you will need to bring a laptop, your editing software of choice, card reader, and jump drive. At the end of most days, after class, you will download images onto your laptop, make selections based upon the day’s assignment, convert images to jpegs, rename selected images, place them in a folder, and transfer them to a jump drive for class the next morning.
