I am currently working in the industry as a freelance photographer as well as a retail staff photographer. I have been photographing for 6+ years now. My focus is people! Portraiture I focus on includes weddings, headshots, lifestyle, fashion, and photojournalism/documentary. My main love is storytelling. I believe if you have a medium such as photography, storytelling is not only fitting - but also necessary. I will teach you how to create a story with lighting, techniques, angles, posing, and context. We will be able to focus on our sitter and bring out the most authentic imagery that fits them and you as an artist.

Based upon a strict but fun adherence to keeping a sketchbook and a journal drawing gets improved. We start out with what makes a drawing for beginners and move through tones and values for intermediates by sticking to my formula for success. this includes using a sketchbook with assigned black and white photos every two weeks with grey scales entered.

At the end of my lessons (I signed up for five of them) I found Margot successfully laid out the foundations of Calligraphy for me. Her lesson's were informative and her instructions on what to work on in- between lessons were clear to follow.
