Virtual Route 66 Photo Workshop

Here's a cool idea for all those who ever wanted to do a Route 66 photo workshop – but who also like the freedom of traveling alone or with a buddy. It's a virtual photo workshop where I help you – before and after your road trip – make photographs like the ones in my Route 66 Gallery.
