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.

Tarin is an amazing teacher. Having never done anything related to photography she taught me how to use a camera and adjust the settings correctly very quickly. She is very professional and knowledgeable.

I have been teaching water painting for almost 10 years..
This is a very exciting class! Students will learn How to Paint Watercolors, How to hold a watercolor brush and Basic Brush Control Exercises etc...
I will get you started and perhaps inspire you, as a watercolor painter. I can supply lessons on the craft and skills, but purpose is what is driving you to want to try to create art. What that vision is, is unique for everyone. The footsteps of the path that lies before you are yours to follow until you can find your own path.
So what are you waiting for ? Sign up your lesson today!

30 Years experience. Areas: Editorial - Magazine, Photojournalism, News - Covers, Features, Lifestyle, Concert, Photo/Digital Illustration. Commercial, VIP, Celebrity, Red Carpet, Real Estate, Event.

I can cover just the photo/camera end for you. And, or, can teach you the digital computer skills you need to bring you images to the next level.

I will teach you how to reveal your own photographic "eye". That is, now to use the camera as an extension of your expression, how to take what you see, and put inside a frame.

I teach photography concepts from the art form, and from basic through advanced technical and aesthetic.

You will learn how a camera lens is much much more than just a zoom closer/farther tool for your scene. The lens you choose is vital towards helping you achieve the vision you are bringing to your work. Camera exposure is similar.

I will also teach you how to "see" your scene or subject as "values" of shades of black, white, and the grays between. This ...

About Richard

Richard is so patient and knowledgeable. I am very happy with our lessons. Because of my background with classical guitar he wondered if the fact that he doesn't read music and I am renewing my mind back into it would not be a good teaching set-up. Not at all. I now have an electric guitar and the five years spent playing classical, now fifteen years ago, did not give me a good foundation for understanding music theory unfortunately. I have a genre I had already picked out fingerstyle electric and now with some thinking my way through the basics I did have I still need to learn just basic strumming etc. I understand what he is referring to in music so we still speak in the same key. Also and lastly my daughter has a severe seizure/dementia disorder that is very unpredictable and our caregiver's mom just passed away so there will be times when I just can't do a week/day. He has been very understanding. I am smiling from my soul because music is my healing path for difficult stuff I couldn't pay any doctor/therapist to even call me back for. Thank you so much for your assistance. Sincerely Teresa
