- Teaches students:
- Ages 18 to 50
- Teaching since:
I am a professional photographer that has been paid to photograph portraits, headshots, products, food, weddings, events, and more. I taught myself from the moment I picked up my first camera decades ago and I haven't stopped learning.
Photography students can expect to improve with every lesson. Every student has a particular style that they like and I help students to find their "eye" and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual style. I can help any student to take better photos in the first lesson.
I teach students of all different experience levels; from complete novices to experienced amateurs looking to further their knowledge of composition and lighting.
I've studied various lighting styles from standard three-point lighting, dramatic single light portraits, natural light control, and cinematic styles. I can teach students to find the best light, to learn how to control it using simple methods, and get the most out of every shutter release.
As a professional photographer, I have been challenged with many challenges and can teach from my mistakes and successes. I have photographed for restaurants in major cities, taken family portraits, created amazing composite photographs for clients, photographed weddings all over, and so much more. I love to mentor students who want to become skilled photographers.
My personal passion is food and product photography but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better photographer!
