About this pro

I believe it's easier to learn while doing. We can go to a location and take photographs, and teach you about your camera. 

I will teach you tips on taking better photographs, how to compose a shot, go over lighting, action, landscapes, portaits, low light, and photos in any situation. I have been a photographer for over 20 years, and hold a degree in Art with a major in Photography from Salem State. I also studied at RIT. I know all formats. Let's go out and take photos!  On location lessons. 

For my own work, I hang my work and sell it currently. I am also on the Fine Art Committee for the Topsfield Fair, and am a member in the Salem Art Association, the Peabody Art Association and the Danvers Art Association where I do the website, facebook and instagram.

There is something photo worthy everywhere you go, you just need to see things a little differently, and be able to gauge what will make a great photograph. I can help you do that. 

Having a camera in my hand is natural, and I love it.

    I was very satisfied with what she showed me yesterday, her knowledge of photography was immeasurable. Jeannine was very patient and a pleasure to learn from. I would without a doubt recommend her to anyone that is interested in learning the skill of photography.

    Jeannine was great with my 13 year old daughter:) My daughter enjoyed learning new photography tips while walking around Endicott Park in Danvers.

    5 stars! She’s so great with my 12 year old son! She has successfully cultivated his interest in all types of photography. We’re so lucky to have found her!
