Meet the Instructors

Natural Connections Photo Workshops is the brainchild of married team, Jeff and Ledra Woodlee.  Their mutual love of photography is the essential cornerstone of this venture.  Together they do what they love best - teaching photography workshops around the country for people who like to travel, learn photography and have lots of fun doing it!

Prior to meeting, both Ledra and Jeff conducted photo workshops individually.  But once they combined forces they discovered a collective 20-year base of photo knowledge to offer to their students. Through classroom lecture, critiques and hands-on instruction in the field, they offer their students the ability to address their specific needs and to develop their photographic talents. 

What Ledra and Jeff bring to the table is larger than the sum of its parts. Teaching how to capture inspiring images is important, but that isn’t all they do. With a background in retail photography sales and service, Jeff and Ledra possess a broad collective knowledge of most things photographic - photography gear in addition to photographic technique.  Everything they have learned in the retail environment has only served to deepen their knowledge and ability to help their workshop participants in the classroom and in the field as well.
