What We Do....

Photo Travel Workshops

We offer 1 - 6 day photography workshops and camera instruction in some of the most beautiful and exciting locations all over the United States.  Our workshops and classes are for ALL skill levels.  Anyone who has an interest in seeing beautiful places and capturing amazing images (while having fun doing it!) belongs on our photography workshops. 

We are an official Olympus Workshop Educator and we shoot Olympus mirrorless cameras during our workshops and for private photographic work.  But do NOT take this to mean that everyone uses Olympus on our workshops - every camera manufacturer and shooter is found and welcomed on our workshops. 

What Makes Us Different from Other Photo Workshop Companies?

  • Our instructors are not just tour leaders - we bring years of teaching experience to the table - a strong background with photo technique as well as an understanding photography gear.   
  • Group size - Always reasonable - There will never be too many people in our photography classes for us to offer individual attention to anyone who needs it.  
  • Our workshops are about YOU - Our instructors are there to teach, period. They do not do their own shooting to the detriment of the students. 
  • Pre-Scouted Locations - Your first time there will NOT be OUR first time there.
  • Our workshops are about having FUN! Some instructors can take the fun right out of photography.  We can guarantee that will never happen on our workshops. 

About NCPW

The NCPW Story


Started in 2009, Natural Connections Photo Workshops is the physical manifestation of its owner and founder’s love of travel, landscape and outdoor photography.  Ledra Woodlee is the force behind this photographic venture and she loves what she does - leading photography workshops around the country for people who like to travel, learn photography and have lots of fun while doing it!

Through classroom lecture, image critique and hands-on instruction in the field,  students are offered the opportunity to address their specific needs and to develop their own photographic talents and interests. 

In 2012, Ledra developed a passion for a new and exciting line of equipment – Olympus mirrorless cameras. She officially switched to the Olympus OM-D line of camera gear after almost 15 years with a well-known DSLR brand. Once Ledra made the switch, she never looked back. Small, light, compact and powerful products only enhance her ability to instruct and be available for her students at all times. In 2017, Natural Connections Photo Workshops became the inaugural member in a new Olympus program, Olympus Workshop Partners, now called Olympus Educators. Ledra also teaches at the Atlanta School of Photography and for the Blue Ridge Mountains Arts Association

With a background in retail photography sales and service, Ledra possesses a broad knowledge of photography gear as well as photographic technique. Everything she has learned in the retail environment only serves to deepen her knowledge and ability to help workshop participants in the classroom and in the field as well. Plus, if you want to learn more about your Olympus gear, she is an expert and can help you with all of your Olympus questions.  Don't shoot Olympus? No problem! You can receive whatever help you need with any camera brand on our workshops. 

Join Natural Connections Photo Workshops on any of our 1 to 7-day local or travel workshops where you are guaranteed to see beautiful places, learn more about your photography gear and capture amazing images while enjoying every minute of it!
