Gene Tewksbury / Big Sun Photography Studio

My name is Gene Tewksbury.  I am a professional photographer working out of Golden, Colorado. [BigSunPhotography.com]

I love teaching photo enthusiasts how to make the most of their cameras and imaging software.

My private classes are very flexible and we will modify the curriculum as needed based on your background and how well you are grasping each topic. 

  • Questions and comments are encouraged through the entire class. 
  • I try to effectively convey the "how and why" of photogrpahy, not just "click by numbers" approach.  In other words, I want you to know why a technique works so that you can apply that technique beyond the examples from class.  
    "Teach a man to fish....  right?"

I look forward to helping you reach your artistic goals.
