I believe that photography is the art of seeing. Digital has made things easier, but it can impede truly *seeing* and interacting with a subject, and that's where great work lies. It's easy to shoot 5000 frames and say "I'll fix it later," but an artist should be completely in the moment, composing each frame, being familiar with each part of it, before clicking the shutter. My goal is to help you create images that show viewers what YOU saw, not what your camera saw while you weren't there.
I have a no-pressure, comfortable approach to all learning. Being a beginner is a great time, full of experimentation & curiosity. I teach by finding out where you need to start in this learning process, then explaining & showing, then watching you do the skill. We'll stay at any level you're having trouble with until you feel totally comfortable, then proceed to the next step. Works every time!
