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.
Working with Jeannine Pelkey has been informative & fun. I’m continuing to take lessons, she is great at giving instruction, offering different perspectives & great tips.
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!

Recently I have taught a boy scout to use a DSLR to get his badge. He now owns his own and has been doing great work!
I also taught a young lady how to use her camera, went over lighting, settings, action, composition and more.
