Hello, thanks for reviewing my background. My name is Scot Langdon, I am a working professional photographer in southern New Hampshire and the Boston area. I also teach photography to beginning students through Hunts Photo Store in Manchester NH, and teach for the Town of Watertown, MA in the adult education program. I have experience with photographing people/portraits using natural light or off camera flash/soft boxes, sports action, commercial work for company websites and interior design photography (hotels, AIRBNB, real estate agents). I work on an hourly basis for my coaching and make myself available as needed by email for any follow up quetions after a session, at no additional charge. Our first step would be to outline with you what you want to achieve and then work backwards and build a plan to get there. I can make the most difficult concepts easy to understand. Thanks, Scot Langdon
I enjoy teaching the next generation of photographers. I still enjoy talking about photography and why it's important to me.
Scot has done a great job as an instructor with our Adult & Community Education program. Scot has taught classes on how to use a digital camera and led an instructional Photowalk through Watertown. Students have learned a lot and had a great time!
Scot was very personable and very knowledgeable. He got up to speed quickly on where I was and where I wanted to go and has made a plan for us going forward. Nice guy, great experience.
The lessons from Scot on portraits and lighting were very helpful! The knowledge gained from interactive lessons like those have stuck with me better than any book or online reading ever will.
Scot the Instructor was very knowledgeable and friendly. Light angles and color are my two best friends! Highly recommend.
Our first step would be to outline with you what you want to achieve with your photography and then work backwards to build a plan to help get you there. I will send the plan in writing to you for approval before we start. If you need references, I will provide them.
Graduated from Syracuse University, SI Newhouse School of Public Communications (Photojournalism). Adobe Lightroom training, speedlight training for off camera flash work.
I charge $40/hour. After our formal sessions are completed, I include free follow up via email for 6 months.
I started teaching/coaching photography in 2015 when I founded a photography group/club in my town, our monthly meetings held at the library. We have different photo challenges/topics and share our work in an open, non-judgemental atmosphere. I then started after hours sessions that were well-received.
I work with beginners who just purchased their first digital camera and going on a trip; or students just learning how to use a 35mm film camera for high school; or experienced photographers who want to push their skills to the next level with advanced shooting or lighting help.
On the weekends I shoot weddings, which are always a fun time to shoot alot of emotion, happy images.
