Who are we?

Two photographers with a knack for teaching.

Tim Cooper

Tim Cooper

Photoshop Wiz, Master of Landscapes
The kind of photographer we all want to grow up to be, Tim is a master of Landscape photography and post processing.  There’s not much this guy doesn’t know about photography, in fact, he’s so knowledgeable that he’s had to fill books with what he knows just to make room for more. He’s a bit of an enigma, but then again anyone who drinks a fine scotch while watching reruns of Buffy the Vampire Slayer would be.
Tony Rizzuto

Tony Rizzuto

Passionate teacher, Photographer of people

Insightful, warm and funny; Tony is always in your corner. A long time professional with a focus on people photography and macro, he enjoys the role of teacher as much as photographer. Like your mother-in-law, he’s there to ask you tough questions or tell you when you’re not good enough.  But like your favorite coach, he’ll teach you the skills and help you live up to your potential.

ONE ON ONE MENTORING

Got Questions?

That’s great ’cause we’ve got answers for you. Mentoring helps you put all the pieces together so you can move forward at light speed.

Eye on the Prize.

It’s really hard to figure out the best path to take when you’re all on your own. We’ll walk you down the right one by setting individual goals that are perfectly tailored for you so you’ll easily stay on track.

Growth is our game.

Consider us your watering can and a bundle of sunshine. You’ll be blown away by how much you grow in just six month of mentoring.

Home is where the heart is.

Mentoring is the best of both worlds. It’s kick ass education that comes to you in the comfort and convenience of your own home. It’s essentially like having your cake and eating it too (and we know you like cake).

Key to your success

We’ve been around the block a few times and know how to easily move you in the direction of your dreams. We hold the keys that will help you succeed.

HDR and Focus Stacking

HDR and Focus Stacking

Sometimes it’s just impossible to capture the scene with just one exposure.  You may have to take multiple exposures to create an HDR blend to overcome the high contrast in the scene.  In other situations you may have to change focus in between shots to achieve maximum depth of field.  Whatever the case, there are situations…

Zion Workshop: Student Work

Okay, so there was a lot of hype around this one and it wasn’t because my birthday fell in the middle of the week.  Tim considers Zion to be his all time favorite park and the latest group of students just found out why. A heartfelt thank you to all that came with us to…

The Workshop Experience: Zion

Many of you know that we just got back from Zion and have been asking to see the images that our students created.  Well, you’re going to have to wait a week for that (and it’ll be worth the wait).

Photo Review: Complexity

Photo Review: Complexity

When learning photography we are often told to subtract as much as possible but sometimes our photos benefit from showing more.  Check out the video below in which Tony and Tim discuss how different a photo feels by including and excluding one small element.

The Workshop Experience: Victoria B.C.

Victoria has long been one of our favorite locations.  Last week you saw some of the gorgeous images created by our students on the most recent PB workshop.  Now sit back and watch what it was like to be photographing in Victoria’s beautiful and diverse locations.

We LOVE Victoria and were thrilled to take a group of eager students to our favorite city up north!   Each student pushed themselves creatively and technically to create remarkable images that truly capture what makes the city so special.
