I am a lifelong instructor of complex skills. I have taught (in no particular order):
Ice Hockey and Skating
The most important thing you need to consider when picking a teacher is how do they teach? I understand and can adapt my methods to each of the major learning methods. Moreover I will adapt my teaching style to speed up or slow down based on your needs.
Lastly, I don't want to teach you the 'right' way to learn photography. To be honest, there is no such thing. I want to arm you with an understanding of the principles of photography, how a camera works, how lenses work, etc and then teach you to apply those lessons in real-world scenarios.
I found photography first as a way to relax and then as a way to express myself. Having a technical mind, I definitely was attracted to the technological advances over the past few years in photography, drones, lighting, etc.
The truth is though, those are just tools to be harnessed to be able to really express yourself.
There are no reviews yet
I like to have the first conversation with my student over the phone or in-person over a cup of coffee.
It's important to understand a student's learning style, their goals for what they want to get out of a set of lessons as well as some realistic metrics to measure against.
I have spent over 10 years studying with some of the best photographers in the business.
Focus on intangibles instead of pricing. You can spend less, per lesson, but if the instructor doesn't know how to teach and it takes you 3x as long to learn something useful, did you really save anything?
