About this pro

  I am still young and have a lot to learn myself, but even though I am a younger- I'm hardly lacking in experience. After taking on so many different styles and projects throughout the  years, I have become very versatile and can help people understand many different types of photography. From portraits, to food, to underwater, to landscapes and beyond- I can help you with any of your needs! 

  What got me into photography was the people and their stories. The challenge to tell their whole life and show their personalities in just one frame, is too much fun to turn away from, and with our constantly growing world there are so many stories to share. Because of this passion I have met all kinds of people and have traveled to breathtaking parts of the world.     Now I want to take all that experience and knowledge and help others channel their passions through photography.

    Incredibly patient and kind. She was able to explain things in a way that I was able to understand and also pushed me creatively! Would definitely recommend!



FAQs


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

  Everyone learns differently and starts at different levels, so I try to keep that in mind and make my lessons as personal as possible in order to help each individual student learn in a way that's best suited for them.

  So the first bit will be both of us getting to know each other and me getting a better understanding of how to help you learn and grow as much as possible. 

  Although I am a key believer in breaking the rules and going out of the box, you can't do that without knowing what those rules are and the box is, which is what I will teach you (no matter what level you are at starting off). Once you feel comfortable with those guides, then we can start going beyond! 


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

  My whole life I've been telling and capturing stories in all kinds of formats. It wasn't until I started college that I really found my calling in photography. There I studied for five years and graduated. From there I branched out and traveled the world, taking on all types of photography gigs hoping to find what I really enjoy- but I found that I love them all.

  With my formal training and the years of experience I've gained, I now how a variety of skills and knowledge I can share with you. 

   


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

  My standard pricing is usually consistant, the only varying factors are if there is a long traveling distance, or if I need to bring additional gear to show. 


How did you get started teaching?

  It all started when one of my past instructors asked me to be his assistant for a semester and teach a couple of specialty classes for his students. From there people reached out to me asking to teach them, and it's something that I became fond of doing. Now not only is it a way to help others, but it helps me grow as a photographer and as a person. 

  


What types of students have you worked with?

  I have had the amazing opportunity to work with all types of students. From teaching family members and friends who knew nothing about a camera, to teaching students dedicated to getting an education in photography who already knew the technical aspects. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

  I would say to really do your research. There are a lot of teachers out there, but only a handful will be the right choice for you. So make sure you find one that fits your needs, your learning style, and so on. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

  Before even finding a teacher, I think you should ask yourself the big "why". Why do you want to get into photography? Is it to make money? To tell a certain story? To get more likes on social media or is it something completely different? Once you know why, even if there are hundreds of reasons why, you will be able to better communicate your needs as a student, and be able to find a teacher that will be better suited for you.
