Develop your photography skills

with landscape photographer Chris Sandberg

“I want to take more interesting pictures.”

“I want more control of my camera.”

“I want to know how to make great prints of the pictures I take.”

No one was born knowing how to make great pictures.  The process of learning to see and capture compelling images can be fun and rewarding, and I work with individual students and small groups to help them develop their skills and discover a personal style.  Here’s what students have told me after taking my classes:

          “Thanks for a great weekend, Chris.  We really enjoyed the beautiful places you showed us.”

               - Travis H. and Janell B.

          “We  wanted to thank you for you informative and fun seminar on Saturday. We gained a good deal of  useful knowledge.  Thanks again.”

              -  Mark R. and Denise R. 

Individual Instruction

For students who want to work on a particular aspect of their photography, one-on-one sessions provide undivided attention and precise focus. These sessions are designed to zero in on your needs and help you explore the artistic or technical issues most important to you.   You’ll get tips, hints, techniques, ideas, and secrets for your photo-making skills in an indoor class or a scenic location, designed to help you find a personal style for your images.

Sessions are arranged on your schedule, and at locations conducive to the learning at hand. Tuition is $95/hour, with a two- hour minimum block, or you can purchase a 6-hour package for $445.

One-half of the tuition reserves the session, with the remainder due when we meet for the session.  If you need to cancel a scheduled session, your reservation will be applied in full to another session any time in the next six months.

Group Classes

All my classes and field workshops are very small groups - four or six students maximum.  I’ve worked in larger groups, and been disappointed that students just don’t get their money’s worth.  My approach is to keep the classes small and made sure every student gets the time and personal attention he or she needs.

Registration for classes is easy: send me an email with the name of the class and your contact info, and you’ll get a prompt reply setting you up for the class.


All of my classes and workshops make great gifts!  If you have a budding photographer in the family or in your circle of friends, they would love some individual instruction time in the classroom or in the field.  Drop me an email and I’ll prepare a gift certificate for you to wrap and surprise that special person.
