AT THE END OF 2017 I will have attended 10 Natural Connections Photo Workshops with Jeff and Ledra Woodlee. Their advanced planning and scouting of each location is outstanding. No wasted time during the workshop. They take you to the best photo locations at the most ideal time of day. The group size of a photography workshop or photography class allows time for each participant to enjoy one on one instruction. Because I shoot Olympus (thanks to Jeff and Ledra) their knowledge of Olympus cameras is very helpful and important to me. Make no mistake their knowledge is not limited to Olympus equipment. Since my first workshop in 2014 Jeff and Ledra have taken me from a beginner to an advanced photographer. Their honest and informative critiques of images taken during the workshop has improved my photography. I am booked for three future workshops in 2018. Can’t wait!!! CHARLIE L.
I HAVE ATTENDED 6 workshops with Natural Connections and have registered for 4 more. Jeff and Ledra share their unique experience and knowledge to encourage everyone to understand the basics of their camera, so you can capture that awesome photo. I have had so much fun learning photography with Natural Connections, simply because of the beautiful places they choose to photograph. My favorite for 2017 is the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Parks. I like that they welcome all levels of photographers and are always making sure you have the correct settings, regardless of the camera you use. They are constantly interacting with the group and have positive feedback for each person. Looking forward to their workshops for 2018 to see what wonderful photos I can capture with my OM-D E-M1 Olympus camera. CONNIE C.
IF YOU ARE looking for an informative, interesting, comprehensive, and engaging photography workshop or photography class, then you have found the right place for you! The class size of a Natural Connections workshop lets each student have one on one time with instructors Jeff and Ledra Woodlee. The workshop is packed full of well thought out locations to cover a variety of shooting situations. They wrap up the weekend with an honest and informative critique of images taken during the workshop. I guarantee you will come away having learned and laughed a lot! DEB H.
NATURAL Connections Photo Workshops are just plain fun to go on. I have been on six photo workshops with Jeff and Ledra Woodlee and have one already planned for next year. I have found that their photography workshops and photo classes are a very good value and go to both exotic and local venues. I like going to different photographic locations with other photographers, and I have always learned something new and have had fun being with each group. JOE B.
MY WIFE AND I attended the Savannah workshop. It was AWESOME. Exactly what I wanted. I’ve been wanting to photograph Savannah for a long time, and Jeff and Ledra put me in the right places at the right times. Even with an overcast day we ended up with some great photos at Tybee Island and captured the firing of cannon at Fort Pulaski at exactly the right time to get the red/yellow fire ball shooting from the cannon. Jeff and Ledra guided us right through the shot making sure we had the correct composition and camera settings. They left nothing to chance. I was so impressed with the workshop I signed up for the Arches workshop in 2015. Jeff and Ledra are just fun to be around. SAM B.
I'VE ATTENDED 2 workshops (looking forward to #3) with Natural Connections and am so happy to have found them! Jeff & Ledra give such personalized attention to each individual person throughout the entire photo event. Your camera choice and shooting experience makes no difference. They will walk you through it all. Every photography class has been a blast. I've meet some really great people and been to some amazing spots. I look forward to my next adventure! JULIE C.
I WENT ON 2 workshops this year and have already signed up for the Smokies photo workshop next year. The workshops were a great learning experience and I really enjoyed spending time with like minded photographers. Jeff and Ledra are both great teachers and they are also fun people to be with. This definitely enhances the whole workshop experience. Highly recommended! MICKEY B.
THE FORMAT WAS PERFECT – class instruction followed photography in the field. The critique at the end of the workshop made me realize something about myself. That is, I prefer creating in photography small vignettes rather than large tableaus. Thanks to Jeff and Ledra for their help! MARSHA W.
THANKS SO MUCH for a wonderful experience. What beautiful scenery we had to photograph and what great people to hang around while doing so. You were so organized and made it all very easy. CHRISTINA W.
I AM A SLOW learner when it comes to photography. Jeff and Ledra are very patient and worked with me. I want to emphasize the one on one experience that they provide. They put together a nice group of people with their workshop. ALISON K.
