Smaller the Better
Your run-of-the-mill workshops allow 14-16 participants. We don’t; here’s why. Expecting you to compete over the best vantage point, having other students in your shots, and fighting for one-on-one time with your instructor isn’t our idea of a good time. Heck no! We believe in putting your needs first, so we only let in a small number of students per workshop. By doing so, we create a fun and supportive environment for you to learn and grow instead of one that feels competitive. And that’s what we’re all about.
Like No Other
At PB, we do things differently, and it’s something we’re proud of. We’ve thought of every little thing to make your experience the very best it can be. Every aspect of our workshops is built so that Tony has time with you, understands your goals, and moves you forward both technically and creatively. This isn’t our first rodeo, and we know what a workshop experience should be. We promise you’ll leave the workshop feeling confident, refreshed, and a better photographer.
A True Original
If you have taken a workshop with Tony before, you already understand a PB workshop is much more than just showing up to a pretty spot and setting up your tripod. The goal is not to show you what photographer you should be, but to help you become the photographer you want to be. We are committed to helping you take photographs that you are proud of and represent who you are as a photographer. At PB, we wouldn’t dare set you up to take an unoriginal copy of someone else’s “been there, done that.”
It’s no biggie if you know where you want to go but you’re not quite sure how to get there. We’ll lead the way.
We want encouraging, problem solving, heart centered people on these great adventures with us.
We are world class workshops.
We are vision-driven, working to help you focus on what matters. Our workshops are designed to engage your creativity and help you capture wonderful things in ways that are truly you. We are here for the people that love photography and are ready and willing to show up for themselves.
Tony is not only a great instructor, but has the ability to help us all see, embrace and improve upon the skills we have as visual artists. The learning environment is always open, engaging and fun...which is why I and many others come back again and again.
Tony has an incredible gift for seeing your process and understanding your obstacles before you do. And, he conveys tools and approaches to allow you to elevate the magic in your images. So often, we are our own worst critic. Tony will help you “get out of your own way” so you can execute your vision.
- MARIELENA SMITH
Tony somehow knows what is "in" you and how to pull it out. Every step of the week was thoroughly researched and thoughtfully planned and the small size of the group allowed us great flexibility. I don't know if I have had a better teacher/mentor than Tony.
- NANCY CARROLL
Tony has the unique ability to offer critical observations about your photos and really help you understand how to improve them. He doesn’t try to change your style. He embraces each participants individuality and pushes them to grow and learn. I highly recommend any of his workshops!

We craft beautiful experiences
We believe in taking the time to enjoy life. As photographers, it’s paramount to escape the every day once in a while and pursue what we love and hold dear. It’s important to us that we bring you to places that ignite and inspire you and frankly, inspire us too. When you combine the right people, the right places, and a caring instructor, there is no doubt, magic will happen.
We believe that anything is possible for those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. We welcome photographers of all ages and all stages and always will. The most important thing is that you love to learn, are open and willing to try new things, and are a great listener. You’re the spark, and we’re the lighter fluid. Together, well, you get the idea.
Passion over perfection
We need to tell you something right now, and perfectionism doesn’t belong in our version of photography. Why? Because we want to create images that evoke emotion and feeling, and perfect is (dare we say it) boring! Being passionate about what you do and knowing your intentions when you photograph is something we can get behind. It’s important that you play, have fun, and come away with images you are proud of.
