Photographer in the Inland Empire since 1988
Photography is a wonderful way to capture the beauty in every day life. I enjoy making art and having something beautiful stand out that normally we simply overlook or sometimes never even see at all.

With a new student, I find out what they currently know about the equipment they have, and design a study course of training material and real-application photo-shoots to help them progress to the level they desire.
Over 25 years experience, working in different settings. I have extensive training and experience for studio strobe lighting. I have worked with several magazines as "staff" photographer, shooting editorials, ads, and cover shots.
I have have worked with several clothing designers located in Southern California to shoot and display their products for online marketing.
$25.00 / per session. A session where we sit down and discuss some technical understanding, then go out and actually use the process in a hands-on setting will normally take 1 - 2 hours.
Initially I started helping out friends and clients, who showed an interest in photography but had no idea how to use the settings on the camera.
I have worked with beginners who have had no previous knowledge of how a camera works, as well as professionals who wanted to learn a style of lighting, which they saw in my work.
For Photography, as a student, you want to learn about the camera, the way it works, and how to use the settings, but also look for an instructor who will teach you the fundementals of photography and the relation between the settings on the camera. For example how ISO / Shutter Speed / Apeture work together. What do I need to do if I change one of those settings? How to control what the camera is seeing in the image. When to use a wide apeture, and when to select a small apeture. Why is shutter speed important. Many more questions start coming up when you inquire about how the camera works, and how you capture light to create your art. Learn everything you can!
Will you teach me what I really want to know, rather than just give me a quick formula and send me on my way?
