Les Jorgensen’s classes and workshops are for photographers who want to “up their game.” If you are you ready to unlock the potential of your camera, Les has instruction tailored to help you master the techniques and seize the language of photography.
Les covers f-stops, shutter speeds, lenses, light and editing of pixels along the way, but his approach emphasizes the language of the image, the potential of composition, the storytelling ability of light and the cultural metaphors that we all share. He believes that every picture tells a story and that by understanding the language of camera and light, the student can unlock potential and self-esteem through the viewfinder.
