I'm Kody, and I do this because I love it. I've become very good at helping people get their photography off the ground quickly by showing you each element of control you have over your images as intuitively as possible. The entire reason you're learning photography is because it's awesome, and I'll show you (via a tethered shoot for instant feedback) how and why each camera control can make your images more awesome.
I also teach great in-the-trenches adobe photoshop classes for photographers who don't want to be distracted by photoshop too much, but retain a competitive edge with the look and feel of their photographs. That being said, I love getting a lot more specific in photoshop, and if you can think of a problem, I've found a way to fix it. For more advanced photographers, I also offer learning through access to real commercial shoots with talented commercial photographers.
I manage an organization of over 25 commercial photographers, videographers, and editors who produce high-end advertising campaigns and flexible services to both startup businesses and larger commercial clients. We also work to improve access to education both through scouting and training talented artists without access to higher education by offering them roles within professional commercial shoots.
