Learn Photography

Photography is a lifelong journey—there is always something new to learn and try, whether it is a new subject, a new technique, or just a new perspective.

Everyone has a different starting point and different goals. I will create a custom program to help you achieve your goals. For some that might be a one-time zoom coaching session and for others it could be ongoing in-person lessons. It might even start with some time spent helping you to define your photography goals.

If you are interested in learning in-person or remotely, please reach out to me at josh@weinbergphoto.com and let’s find 30 minutes to see if there is a fit.
