I am a photographer and custom printer. I have been teaching photography for as long as I can remember. I am more interested in what is happening between the ears than what equipment you own. I am a certified Adult Education Photography ninstructer and I taught photography at the Tri Community Photo Center in Covina for 6 years. I also run a custom silver lab that is a part of Weldon Lab in Culver City where I do custon film developing and silver printing up to 20x24 in. size. I am just as comfortable in the darkroom as I am in the digital world sacanning and printing.

I love any aspect of Photography. Any photographuc technique is exciting and interesting. I always learn something new and I utilize many techniques both traditional and digital. I do traditional silver developing of film and silver prints, I have a pro silver lab in Culver City and I also specialize in digital scanning and printing.
