Private Workshops

Private Workshops & Guide Service


Chad Dutson provides private individual and group sessions that are incredibly useful in receiving instruction that caters to your style, equipment, and schedule. Chad has photographed professionally using Sony, Nikon, and Canon gear, providing a variety of equipment expertise.

Workshops are available for beginning through advanced level photographers, so that each experience is customized to your preferences. Your workshop will be aimed more toward instruction or guide service, depending on your preference. Sessions can be scheduled online, at your home, or on-location, from a few hours up to several days.
