Teaching since:

Hi and thanks for your interest in my classes. I’m a highly experienced teacher and graduate of ArtCenter College of Design. I’m the owner of Melrose Lightspace in West Hollywood, a fully equipped, 2000 ft.² studio, where I offer my private, one on one classes to aspiring creative image makers of all ages and levels of experience. In addition to teaching, I’m a professional photographer myself with numerous ad campaigns and editorials in my portfolio including movie posters for Disney, Warner Bros. and other top studios as well as a book of published work. I’m passionate and thorough and all my lessons include follow up phone access in case you forget something or just need a little extra guidance. I’m all about my students’ success, whether you’re looking to be a pro or do it just for a hobby. Thanks again and I look forward to working with you
