Hello I'm Scott,

As the son of a successful LA commercial photographer I grew up in the darkroom and assisted photographers in the studio. The industry was all film back then but it is still about the light, composition, execution and passion. I have been a professional photographer for 30 years.

Beginners will learn basics of the camera and light. How to correctly capture an image they see so it turns out how they expect. You will learn basic composition, some basic lighting, camera settings...what why and when they are most useful. Beginners may also learn some of the same things as intermediate and even advanced students learn but not as technical or as disciplined.

Custom lessons and curriculum to fit your current level and goals. You will learn to see and capture light on a variety of subjects, how to manage your equipment and build your skill set to what ever your goals are. How to develop and optimize your images digitally or in a darkroom (actual darkroom time is for more advance students). You may also learn about different fields in photography and specialize in that skill set.

Advance students learn how to shoot for clients, execution of concepts, advanced lighting, prep for college photography, processing images, etc.

I am a dad of a 13 and 18 year old twins, one going to Lewis & Clark and the other attending the Univ of Or. I was a little league coach for 8 years and on the board for a few of those years. My 13 year old now plays JBA/O and hopes to play for Clackamas High.
