I want to be able to help people discover their passion of photography and understand how to take any photo in any situation.

I teach a hands on course about manual settings and how to use them to help take those perfect photos. I give a binder with all the information we learn in class to reference back to.

I like seeing the expression on my students faces when they "Get it". Knowing that they can now go home with confidence in their ability to take the photos they have always wanted to take. I love that it is Happy work.

I have been a professional for over 25 yrs.
