I have a background in portrait and street photography, both in digital and film. Currently employed full time as a product, event and commercial photographer. I have great understanding about both the artistic side and scientific side of photography. I can teach you how to make the shot, how to use your tools, what tools to use and how they work. Depending on your interests, I may be able to teach you how to fix some vintage lenses.
I enjoy sharing my knowledge the same way I enjoy learning from others. Every day, situation, person is different, there is no monotony at any time.

First, we determine the student's knowledge level and start with a few practical exercises determined by said knowledge. We go over the exposure relationship chart and practice it for a bit until the student feels comfortable with how it functions. After that, we will be building upon what has been practiced with a few rules/guidelines that will help you take better photographs.
I've been educated both at home and by institutions. Both of my parents were photographers, as was one of my grandfathers. For lack of a better word, it's in my blood. I have finished all the photography related courses in college and went on to intern as an assistant to a couple of photographers based in Manhattan, where I got my field experience.
My pricing is the same for everyone. The only additions to the lesson's costs would be if you decide to borrow some equipment or damage something that has been borrowed.
I started teaching since I was in high school as a teacher's aide, then I've done the same thing in college. In both I've also been the darkroom assistant. Ever since finishing my schooling, I started teaching privately just because I wanted to share real-world knowledge and experience while making some money on the side. On top of that, I have prepared presentations that I show at my old high school, trying to find a new generation's interest for photography.
A teacher should always be able to answer your question in at least 3 levels of difficulty. That way you ensure that whomever is teaching you, knows their stuff like the back of their hand while blindfolded.
"What kind of photography do I like most?"
"What makes a good picture? What makes a bad one?"
"How much time and energy am I willing to spend to get better?"
