"Learning to compose" A photograph from the 2013 Craig Varjabedian Photography Workshop at the C.M. Russell Museum. Photograph by Kim Kapalka, Museum Education & Program Manager Teaching is a big responsibility. At least it is that way for me. People come to a workshop to learn from you and this must be honored. I can’t tell you the number of times that a participant in one of my workshops has told me about some other course where the instructor was too busy making his or her own pictures to help the participant make theirs. I find myself indignant.

I teach workshops to help students become better photographers—that’s the bottom line.  And this must be distinctly understood . . .
