Photographic Art Studio By Jeanette
I have been a photography instructor for over 10 years. I taught at an Art College in California. I enjoy teaching people how to take better photos. My focus is on the camera and not the camera-phone, however, with exception I will consider the camera-phone. I have been a certified professional photographers since 1998. One of my photos was selected to hang in the Pentagon in honor of a fallen person on September 11, 2001. The photo was hung during the celebration on September 11, 2002.
I have experience with portrait, product, event and food photography. I am now located in Illinois.
I am a highly skilled Photo Retoucher and Digital Photo Artist.
