I studied at the Art Institute of Atlanta in 1987-88 and have worked as a full-time professional photographer for over thirty years. I love the Art of Photography in all aspects; from meeting interesting people as subjects and creating artistic images of the people and things they love. I'm a Certified Professional Photographer by the PPA and have taught at numerous seminars and classes over the years. I can teach both the art and science of digital photography. You'll learn how to run your camera manually, make the correct focal length lens choice for the effect you desire, what those funny little histograms are really telling you and much much more!

First: determine their current level of knowledge. Second, ask what their main area of interest is.
Classic Art training, Art Institute study of photography and thirty years of full time employment as a professional photographer.
I try to remain flexible. Advanced students may be able to grasp large amounts of information in one hour. Beginners may require many successive lessons to get where they want to be. If I determine the student will require multiple lessons, I adjust the hourly rate to make it affordable.
My love for photography. I love the subject!
Men and women of all ages.
Have a conversation with a potential teacher before making a commitment. Many people are skilled at photography, or appear to be, but few are able to communicate what they know effectively. Some apparently "good" photographers have nothing but a nice camera and a good eye. Current imaging technology is so good, almost anyone can take a correctly exposed picture, but that's not the art of photography.
What is their end goal? An exciting and creative hobby? Perhaps a full time job or something in between?
