About Richard G.

Las Vegas, NV
View Full Profile

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
I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love.

Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Professional, and find great reward in sharing my experience and knowledge with my students.

When the "aha" light goes on, it's truly a wonderful moment for me, and encourages me to drive my students to build towards more of those moments as students, and then ultimately, for themselves as they learn to grow for themselves.

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

I'm a Fashion Photographer and also a former National Geographic Photographer who has taught Photography for more than 15 years, including as a guest lecturer and speaker at Photographic events around the country. I love working with all levels of students, from beginners to advanced professionals. I will teach you how to take great photographs that communicate your message, stories and ideas. Whether its learning how to take great travel photos, shooting fashion ads or product shots for your company website, I will show you how to do it. I also teach Photoshop, both beginner and advance to take your photos to the next level.

About Ira
I'm a former NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PHOTOGRAPHER and Fashion Photographer, shooting ads for major corporations. My ads for Revlon, Estee Lauder, Calvin Klein and other famous brands have apeared in VOGUE, ELLE, INSTYLE and hundreds of other publications. I've also been a frequent guest speaker at major photographic events and trade shows, teaching advanced techniques to professionals.

I'm an expert in using Photoshop, including advanced retouching techniques, composites and layering. And I believe it's critical to master these skills to produce truly great photography, because even if you're not doing any retouching, you need to use these techniques to fine-tune your image and make it powerful.

Because I started as a photo-journalist and then went into fashion and advertising, I have a in-depth understanding of how to create strong, b
eautiful images in all of these areas. I've hung out of helicopters and airplanes shooting for National Geographic, and worked in New York City creating images for major ad campaigns.

If you want to improve your travel photography, portraits, shoot amazing product shots, or anything else, I can show you how to do it! I love sharing all the knowledge and techniques I've learned over the years to help make you the best photographer you can be!

About Keith L.

Portland, OR

Whether you want to shoot amazing portraits, capture candid moments with your friends, or showcase the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, photographic knowledge is universal. It's all about the lighting, the composition, and the moment.

Operating the camera is secondary and my goal in teaching is to demystify the technicalities of "taking a photograph" so you can focus on all of the creative decisions involved in "making a photograph."

About Keith
I've been a film and documentary filmmaker since 2006 and have shot projects in over 15 countries around the world. As a cinematographer and editor, I have credits on many films, documentaries and commercials. As a director, I have a body of music video work that has been premiered on NPR, Paste Magazine, and Billboard.

I've held just about every job there is to have on a film set and would love to share that knowledge with you!

About William V.

I've been a photographer for half my life, and in that time I've made it a personal mission of mine to teach curious people as much as I can. I've tutored in person, I led workshops and clubs, and I've worked for major institutions like the Center for Photography at Woodstock! It's never been easier than now to learn photography, as we all have easy access to at least one camera or another! I can teach you everything from making beautiful images with your iPhone, all the way to how to load and develop your own film. Photography is what makes me wake up in the morning, let me share my passion with you!

About William

I've worked commercially photographing products for a major home improvement brand, I've managed a professional level photo printing lab, retouched photos and photographed for major sports organizations, and now I shoot weddings and teach! Though I work commercially, art and teaching are my true passions and the commercial work just serves to support what I truly want to do: spread my joy for photography to other people.
