Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Experience learning from someone who has enjoyed decades of shooting creative photographic imagery. My photography skill has been developed through hard work and self training, study through courses, life experience and by rigorous evaluation through submissions that must be approved online for commercial use and in contests. As a result, I have earned hundreds of thousands of dollars by learning how to sell images online and price photoshoots to produce quality income.

Studying shooting and lighting techniques has allowed me to develop an understanding of photography that can be shared to help others greatly improve their skill and understanding of fundamentals. I'll provide insight on working with models, professional businesses or families and the communication skills and interaction required to achieve the best results in a photoshoot.

I have developed skill in using post-processing tools to create useful and attractive imagery.

My experience in stock photography has enabled me to introduce other photographers to an industry that allows them to monetize their imagery.
