Private Photography Teacher

I am a certified teacher with a master's degree in Radio, TV, Film and one in education as well. I was an adjunct professor of photography at Manhattan's New School for Social Research for 10 years and have spent another 10 years teaching other adults as well as adolescents photography. I have conducted private lessons as well as workshops in my own studio.
My teaching is unique because, unlike many photography clubs where members voice their various opinions on photographs, my technique involves an objective approach where lessons are given each time that can be analyzed to see if requirements of the assignment were met. This way, the student learns not just through critiques, but by comparing his or her results to successful examples. I also do quite a bit of field work and teaching by example. It's the most effective way to learn. I get students putting their digital cameras on "MANUAL" right away and they master the concepts of correct exposure right off the bat.

About William

I have been doing commercial photography for over 40 years. I owned and operated a large studio on West 22nd Street in NYC for 20 of those years and I taught photography from 1988 to the present. I have never stopped. I like one-on-one sessions, but I have also conducted many workshops and classes i

Stephen's a great instructor both from a technical and personable perspective.

He's got a cornucopia of musical knowledge that's evident from how speaks to how he teaches. If you like any film score, chances are he knows how to play it.

Speaking as a beginner, I can say he's been very patient and knows a bunch of exercises and books to learn everything thing from theory to practical pieces to finger exercises.

He provides constructive guidance on what you're doing wrong, and I'm happy to see myself improve under his tutorage. (oh and if you're a sci-fi fan, you'll have a lot in common with him)

Steve is an excellent teacher! I always look forward to my classes. I am a student in high school, and he fully understands my need to balance my school work with piano, and he makes sure that I am able to comfortably commit to both aspects of my life. Steve makes sure that I stay on task and that I am progressing with my piano skills all while making the lessons fun and enjoyable.

Private Photography Teacher

Ten plus years as a commercial photographer as well as the Owner/Operator of my own Photo Company. Since 2011 I have been helping my students to sell their work and explore the world around them.
Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to use your DSLR or SLR in manual and as time goes on you will be making photographs with ease.
In addition to technical skill guidance, don't be surprised if some History of Photography graces our lesson.

I enjoy documentary, studio, portraiture, still-life, sport and many others (more traditional wet processes).
Working with students of all ages and experience levels brings me great joy and I can't wait to start creating photographs with you!

*All classes will be accompanied with a straight forward PDF filled with easy to follow instructions from that day's lesson*
***Please allow 24 hours from the end of the lesson to receive the PDF via email or link***
