FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I first talk with the student to identify his/her specific interest(s), learn about where they are and what they know already. Then I work with the student to set up a schedule. 

After the intitial talk and orientation, I will devise a written lesson plan for the student and then start with that curriculum.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have more than 25 years of professional photography experience and I sat on the board of Judges at Rutgers University for the CASE V Annual Photography Awards, which Awards Professional Staff photographers for Nationwide Universities in the United States. It's the most prestigious award given to University Staff photographers. I served on the board for six years.

I currently exhibit my fine art photography in galleries and museums, nationally and internationally.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Yes. My standard pricing for a single session is $100 for once a week and $85/ lesson for multiple sessions per week.


How did you get started teaching?

I taught a community college summer session in NEW Jersey, where I moved from to Georgia a year ago. I also was guest lecturer at La Guardia College, in NYC.

I also sat on a panel of three photographers, who lectured at SVA(School Of Visual Arts, NYC), sponsored by the Library Of Congress and Photoshelter.com. I lectured on best practices and SEO.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with College age students and also adult professional photographers who are looking to transition from photojournalism, wedding photography to more commercial assignment photography. I also have worked with commercial photographers who want to transition to fibe art photography and exhibition art photography.
