Hi! My name is Justin Oakes, I'm a recent graduate of Temple University. I have a Bachelor's in Journalism with Photojournalism as my Area of Study, as well as an Associate's in Media Studies. I've worked as a mentor for photography students at Temple and have freelanced for various media organizations in the greater Philadelphia area. I cover a wide variety of photographic interests including portraits, sports photography, pet photography, and landscape/nature photography. I also shoot film and would be happy to teach film photography in addition to digital photography! I am well versed in most camera brands, especially Canon and Nikon. I can also teach students how to use Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Photoshop to enhance their photographs!
