I'm an editorial photographer in Charleston, South Carolina. I travel as much as possible, I have a darling dog named Dignan, and I enjoy thrift shopping, Netflixing and eating out. Long walks on the beach are just OK.

Update!

I'm so excited to announce the details for my spring photo workshop! We'll meet upstairs at the Avondale (West Ashley) Mellow Mushroom on Saturday, May 6, from 9:30a-11:30a. Coffee and snacks will be provided!

Workshop description: Photography is one of the most accessible art forms, in my opinion. It's less intimidating than picking up a paint brush for the first time or taking a dance class, and with the advances of digital technology, many of us are carrying around a decent camera at all times (our phones). But accessible doesn’t mean easy, and most of us are familiar with the disappointment that comes from our photos not turning out the way we envisioned. In this fun, casual workshop, I’ll load you up with pro tips for making better photographs, no matter what your subject is and no matter which camera you’re using (yes, even if it's your phone)!

Who it’s for: Hobbyists, amateurs, and anyone else who enjoys photography and wants to take better photos in general, no matter what the subject

Who it’s not for: Professional photographers (you guys know this stuff already)

What we will cover: All aspects of a strong composition, finding good light, and troubleshooting common photo frustrations. We'll also touch on photographing specific subjects like portraits, food, kids, interiors, etc.

What we won’t cover: Technical stuff like aperture, shutter speed, ISO, etc. (though, if enough folks show interest, that might be a future workshop); different types of cameras and how to change the settings on your particular camera (that’s what your manual is for!)

I hope you'll join me! Click here to purchase your spot!*

*Sorry for any inconvenience, but I can only accept PayPal at this time. If you need to pay in another way, or if you have questions about the workshop, please send me a note here or email me at lesryann@gmail.com.

 

 

This spring I'll be teaching a workshop for regular folks who have no aspirations about becoming professional photographers but who simply want to be happier with the images coming out of their cameras (or their phones). Here's the starting principle: you don't need a new camera (or phone). Interested in joining us? Check back here for more details as I get them. I'll also keep you posted on my Instagram page and in my newsletter, which you can sign up for below!
