What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Your first 2-hour lesson covers the following foundational aspects of digital photography:

  • Getting to know your camera and relevant photo gear with an overview of the features you will need to know.
  • Learn the finer details about ISO, White Balance (WB), optimal Color settings, using Flash, maximizing focus and exposure settings.
  • Demystify aperture (f/stops) to learn how each camera and lens controls for light and depth.
  • Learn about about life in motion with Shutter Speed, as you discover the rules around movement with photography.
  • Discover photo secrets and tips that Jared will share with you to truly get most out of your camera!

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and my lessons. I started this work over 17 years ago, and love the personal interaction of working with all types of creative people. I'm passionate about 1:1 and small group teaching, building skills, and experiencing others getting inspired... it all keeps me so motivated to do even more.
People say I possess an easy-going way about working, and when teaching I try to relate challenging and complex details in a simple to remember method. My lessons, multimedia marketing, photography and video services, provide people with a creative, professional and efficient way to grow! Please contact me to see how I can help you!
