Welcome to
Creative Light Photography Workshops
     Creative Light is a new workshop collaboration between photographers Craig McCord and Jane Palmer.  With over 50 years of photographic experience, we have joined forces to bring a new dimension to the photography workshop experience.  Together, we have created a workshop model that goes far beyond just getting you to beautiful landscapes.  Our goal at Creative Light is centered around exploring your creative vision and teaching you the tools and techniques you need to capture images that tell your story.

     Today’s cameras are excellent at determining exposure and producing tack sharp images.  But it remains as true today as it was for early film photographers—it’s the artistic vision of the photographer that makes the click of the shutter result in an artful image.  Anyone can take a snapshot of a beautiful location and come away with an acceptable photo.  We want to take you beyond acceptable, beyond just sharp and well exposed.  Together, we can explore your creativity and show you how to make photographs that tell your story.

Why join us for a workshop 
  • The Creative Light Team is dedicated to your success with small group workshops taking you to beautiful locations.  We know these locations and know when to go for the best light. 
  • Small groups mean lots of time for in-field instruction, including determining exposure and setting up winning compositions.  We are there to help you, not to add images to our portfolio. 
  • Classroom time during off hours covers exposure and composition, developing your artistic vision and post processing your images to bring them from RAW to beautiful.
  • E-Pubs before the workshop get you up to speed on the basics so you are ready to make beautiful images from the first location to the last.
