Colleen’s very first camera was a Le Chic. It was in the 1980’s and it took this strange flat film that doesn’t exist anymore, but she loved that little pink camera. She would set up all her stuffed animals in the yard and pose them for portraits. It gave her a way to express herself through a visual voice she didn’t know she had before. She has always been an inquisitive and curious person, which make her a natural when it comes to storytelling. She has a passion for social justice and media literacy, and faithfully believes that journalism’s aim should be to give a voice to those who do not have one. She was na ... View Profile

Visual Storytelling By I Am Vitaliy

I am a San Francisco based visual storyteller. Along with my wife I have been photographing weddings and portraits since 2008. During the past few years I have taken interest in architecture and commercial photography projects. Whatever the subject may be photographs always tell a story. Recently I've had the opportunity to mentor a few students and have really enjoyed the process of helping and encouraging others as they learn to navigate their cameras and find their artistic voice. ...

I'm a highly published, award winning commercial, editorial and fine art photographer who comes from the analog school of photography where you REALLY had to know what you were doing because we were using film. Back then the only way you could check your exposures were by shooting a polaroid first, except with 35mm, where then, after we measured the light with a hand-held, incident light meter, set the shutter speed and f-stop to what the meter said, we simply bracketed the exposures to cover ourselves. Therefore, I'm a master at knowing how to light stuff with anything from daylight, to tungsten, to studio strobes, etc., etc., not to mention ... View Profile

“Photography” can mean a lot of different things. It could be taking that one special photo of your child, or capturing a moment from nature in your backyard. Photography is personal, and I want to help everyone capture their personal moment. As a professional photographer, I have worked for The Oakland Tribune, as well as newspapers in North Carolina and Louisiana. I have covered everything from tropicals storms and tornados to the NFL. I’ve also photographed weddings and created images to advertise for small businesses. I have the flexibility to understand what you want to accomplish with photography, and develop a plan t ...

Landscapes, long-exposure shots, Milkyway shots, fireworks, street photography, outdoor portraits (individuals & family) and portraits with bokeh effects are my specialty.I use/teach 'Adobe Lightroom 6' to update color tones and touch-up lighting if needed, I try to keep it as original as possible. I am NOT a Photoshop user or teacher. Lightroom is better for Photographers than Photoshop. I conduct my lessons depending on your current skills, knowledge, and preference.

I have been running my own photography business for the past 5 years. Prior to that I worked at a photo agency in San Francisco for 4 years. I believe that this real world experience is what constantly humbles me as a photographer and gives me the drive to teach photography. While I had already been familair with photography due to both my parents being photographers, I was thrown into the fire on many real world situations where I had no idea how to work a monsters DSLR or how to properly photograph a subject or event. I would love to be able to pass on this knowledge to anyone interested in photography. Whether you are starting a photograph ... View Profile
