I want to see the student really understand the concepts that we will be focusing on. I want to create results that are tangible. Wheather the student wants to follow a progressive ciriculum and move through lessons in a traditional way building on top of what we have learned in each session, or the student wants to learn particular techniques or learn certain skills to nail a certain shot. Or possibly they might want to know " how its done ", how other photographers have achieved a style or look that they are knoiwn for. I want to see the spark in their eye and know that they have a good handle on the craft.
I enjoy teaching because the results are undeniable. With photographs the proof is right in front of you and everyone else as well. The students will be able to demonstrate their abilities for their friends, family , and collueges. If they are making this a job on the side or a full time carreer they will need the skills that can only be developed over time and I am here to make sure they are learning how.
