About Natural Connections Photo Workshops

Jeff and Ledra Woodlee's mutual love of photography is the essential cornerstone of this venture. Together they did 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 offered their students the ability to address their specific needs and to develop their photographic talents

In 2012, the two developed a passion for a new and exciting line of equipment – Olympus mirrorless cameras. Both Jeff and Ledra officially switched to the Olympus OM-D line of camera gear after a collective 30 years with a well-known DSLR brand. Once they made the switch, they never looked back. Small, light, compact and powerful products only enhanced their ability to instruct and be available for their students at all times. In 2017, they became pioneers in a new Olympus program, Olympus Workshop Partners.

Jeff’s untimely and sudden passing in early 2018 changed the Natural Connections team physically, but not in spirit. Ledra presses on with the same passion and intensity as before. With a background in retail photography sales and service, Ledra possesses a broad knowledge of photography gear as well as photographic technique. Everything she has learned in the retail environment only serves to deepen her knowledge and ability to help workshop participants in the classroom and in the field as well.
