About the Teacher

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist, Wayne focuses his skills and energies on travel photography, landscape, cityscape and architectural fine art photography.

His best work comes from images first painted in his mind. He mulls over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture, he takes action. The result is images that deeply touch a person’s emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams.

Wayne was an incredible photography instructor. He helped me to really think about the photos I was taking in different ways and helped to refine my photography skills. He was encouraging while not being afraid to push me to be better! Because of his lessons, I was able to confidently start my own business knowing I have the skills needed to take my photography farther! I would recommend him to anyone looking to take their photography to the next level!
