I am a teacher – I say that with pride. I love teaching those that have a desire to learn the craft in any way I can. I look upon myself as a guide helping people find their paths in this world. I work with those that are just starting out all the way up to professionals looking to expand their horizons. Let me help you along your journey.
A typical class starts with a lecture by me followed with a demonstration of the topics. I then turn the camera/computer over to you to get hands-on experience which is invaluable. Anyone can read something or listen to someone talk. Nothing sticks until you try it yourself.
After the shooting/editing session we wrap things up with a question/answer period.
I offer half day sessions as well as spreading out classes over a given number of nights for those that cannot give up a half day or for more in depth exploration. I offer one-on-one mentorships as well as small group lessons limited to 3 or 4 students to make sure everyone gets quality time.
I offer classes/workshops on the following, but not limited to, topics:
Getting better images with your cellphone.
Design and Composition.
Beginning Photography. You just got your first camera and want to learn how to use it. Maybe you’ve had a point and shoot and just made the jump up to a DSLR and now have all these extra options and controls that you don’t have a clue about. This class is for you. Designed to go over the fundamentals of photography and camera functions/settings.
