- January 2001
Hi! My name is Sherry. I hold a BFA in Photography from Pratt Institute. I've been teaching since I was still in middle school, working as a counselor at computer and arts camps, and have worked as an intern, assistant teaching in a private middle/high school.
I freelance as a photographer and assistant, doing my own music photography and digital art on the side. I also work part time as a product photographer for a costume jewelry supply company. I have had photographs in Guitar World, Redbook, Good Housekeeping, Woman's Day, mental_floss, Great Big Story, CNN, and Photos of Norway, among others.
I love working with people of all ages. I am thoroughly learned in film media, but also have a passion for digital techniques. I've been shooting traditionally for 17 years, and using Photoshop for 13.
I find it important to connect with my students to figure out what the different arts can do for them, and find interesting ways and assignments to teach them while utilizing their interests.
I look forward to working with you!
Sherry was an awesome instructor. She was very helpful explaining what i wanted to learn. Will take her again for future lessons.
Sherry is a great instructor. She catered our session based on my needs and level of expertise (beginner). She was able to walk me through everything step by step. I even took notes so I could practice on my own!
A very good and informative lesson, thank you.
Sherry explained the content in an easy to understand manner, which I appreciated very much.
Looking forward to another lesson when I return from my trip.
Sherry explained things clearly and even had a visual graph which helped me understand the concepts. I highly recommend working with Sherry!
Great instructor! Thank you!
Very knowledgeable and helpful
Good start just focusing on the basics.
Sherry is a great instructor. She has lots of patience while covering this multi layered subject. No pun intended. Go ahead, jump in the deep end with Sherry. She will open a whole new world for you!
I was initially concerned about doing the lesson on-line, but it has worked out great. Sherry is a great teacher.
Very good, did well explaining the camera and settings and gave easy to understand examples.
I learned a lot just in my first lesson!! Can't wait to put it to use!!!
Sherry is very easy to communicate and puts you at ease regardless of the level of your experience session was extremely informative encourage further exploration of photography
I wanted to give my 13 year old daughter an overview of photography before a family trip to Africa this summer and we signed up for 2 lessons with Sherry.
Sherry was an excellent instructor. She was knowledgable, punctual and was able to relate to a teenager really well.
My daughter learned a tremendous amount and Sherry made it fun for her too.
I would definitely recommend her as a teacher of photography.
