Mission Statement for Online Workshop

Picture Perfect Weekend WorkshopYou are all shooting great photos that you are happy with and proud of. The goal of this workshop is to give you the knowledge to be more consistent in hitting home run photographs every time you take your camera out of the bag.

There are two parts to making an image, the technical side, and the artistic side. In a four part online video workshop, Brad will spend time teaching and helping you understand BOTH parts to making a great image, so you are more confident next time you’re ready to capture your home run image.

Brad will spend a lot of time explaining to you how understand how to operate your camera on FULL MANUAL. To do this, we will cover the technical aspects of photography; this will include F-stops, shutter speed, aperture, ISO, depth of field, lens choice, etc.

Two people can be standing right next to each other, seeing the same scene in front of them, and in their head, they’ve made two very different images. Maybe you want to show the motion in the waves of Lake Michigan, having them be a blur in your image, while your friend would like to stop that motion, resulting in the waves being crisp and sharp. Because of this, we will teach people how to make better and quicker choices with their own cameras, to get the image they are feeling when they click the shutter button.

Picture Perfect Weekend WorkshopThe second part of the workshop will also focus on the art/vision side of photography and provide you with more choices/building blocks to create great art.  For the 20/20 Vision portion of the workshop, we teach the 20 concepts we use everyday when building our own compositions.

Picture Perfect Weekend WorkshopOne thing we stress is that we build photographs, we don't take photographs.

Before we click the shutter, we are thinking technically and artistically, to build the photograph in our head. Once we get an idea of the final image, we start setting up our tripod and begin building and composing the image. We then are able to click the shutter and see the image in our head come to life.

We will help the most experienced shooters along with total beginners become more efficient and effective in building strong compositions.

The Picture Perfect Workshop Video Series is great for a total beginner with a new camera or a seasoned professional who is looking for a different perspective.  All ages and abilities are welcomed.

We will share all of our secrets on every aspect of our photography business and our secrets on how we shoot.


We prefer you have a digital SLR or mirrorless camera. If you don’t, please have a camera that can be shot on full manual mode so you can change the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. “Point and shoot” cameras and cell phone cameras are not recommended, as you will be limited in what manual options are available to you.
