Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Mastering photography does not have to be difficult or complicated! I have taught numerous subjects for several years, including at the community college and art professional level. Let me help you to a) improve your knowledge and understanding of the features on your camera; 2) learn those fun advanced techniques that take your photography to a new level; and 3) put your skills into practical use so that you get hands-on application of what you've learned.

My approach is fun and non-intimidating.

My students describe me as fun, knowledgeable about my subject, and passionate. I will teach you the technical and artistic basic building blocks of photography using your camera and presenting them to you in a non-intimidating, clear manner. You will wonder why you waited so long to get individual instruction in photography!
