Dave Hard at Work


Welcome to my “Photography for Beginners” Live Webinar page.  I started my photography career 16 years ago and have had the privilege to explore and create images all over the BC coast.  I continue to push the boundaries and create new and captivating images each and every time I photograph.  What makes myself unique for “Photography for Beginners” is I am able to come along side anyone’s ability or level and help them progress faster in the photographic journey.

Next Photography for Beginners – Understanding the Exposure Triangle Live Webinar via Zoom is scheduled for Monday, Nov 22 & Monday Dec 6, 2021.  Zoom will start at 7pmPST.  Note, the Live Webinar only option does not include an In the field session.  That offering is available via the workshop page on this web site.



The foundation of the live webinar will be to understand the Exposure Triangle and how ISO, aperture, & shutter speed work together.  The live power point presentation includes many example showing the many variables that can be selected within the Exposure Triangle.


In addition to the exposure triangle, I will explain how to choose the best “priority” settings (aperture, manual, etc.) in your camera for various photographic situations.  The histogram will also be explained and how to use it to your advantage.


Available to groups & camera clubs.  Price $200 + GST CDN.  Booking for 2022 today!

"I have known Dave since early 2021 when I was first interested in joining some photography workshops and Meetups. From the start, he has been so helpful, communicative and always eager to share his knowledge and passion for photography. On a recent wildlife photography workshop of his in the Great Bear Rainforest, I learned a lot from him and greatly improved my wildlife photography with his help!"

"I came to Dave as an amateur photographer (still am) wanting to get into it a little bit deeper. Dave has gone above and beyond that and has given me that little boost of confidence that I needed to get out there. Once he had figured out what kind of photography I wanted to do he helped me with equipment to achieve my goals . Because there’s so much out there it can be very confusing for an amateur photographer but he made it very clear and understandable . Dave has put up with my many questions and has happily answered them. I am definitely going to go back to him for private lessons so I can hone what skills that I have. I would recommend Dave whether you’re a seasoned photographer or amateur."

"Wow, just when you think a photo cannot capture the beauty of the moment you lived through, Dave is able to bring it back to life!  Thank you, not only for sharing your amazing talent, but how you handled the experience from my first inquiring phone call, through to the careful shipping process and the genuine follow up and excitement for my 20th Anniversary gift to my wife. Thank you Dave!"
