Hi my name is Rolando Otero. I am currently in career transition after spending some 30 plus years as a photojournalist in newspapers. Half of my career I have managed photographers, photos and most recently videos.
The first half of my career I spent behind a camera capturing stories of everyday people, celebrities and politicians.
I can help you learn how to take pictures that are more memorable than the oridinary "picture of record".
At it's heart, photography is all about light and capturing that moment that leaves a mark in someone's life. It could be that time that you saw your favorite celebrity or you made that diving catch to get the first down. Or that sunrise when all of a sudden a boat breaks the plane and makes the photo great. You can also capture someone's essence when they are 8 months pregnant where a simple location and light make a portrait for the ages.
I enjoy our lessons and have learned a lot. Rolando is patient and very knowledgeable and I am continuing lessons with him. He is great!!
I had my first lesson with Rolando last week. He is a super nice guy. He is very professional and knowledgeable about cameras and photography. He is very patient and I enjoyed our lesson very much. I will be taking lessons with him regularly. I am very happy and know I will learn a lot from him.
First i need to know what kind of pictures interest you. Are you a people photographer, scenic or still life? Then what kind of camera do you have, is it DSLR or a mirrorless or an iphone? Then i can develop a plan to make you get the most out of what you have.
