About this pro

I am now retired, and see many people who seem to be struggling with the expensive cameras they have. I feel I could help them use more of the features available.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Nothing is typical when it comes to sharing knowledge, but here's what I am thinking.

I would like to start by discussing the students desires, and needs. I really don't think think I could teach you to be a great photographer, as I feel aartistic talent is a gift.

Starting with the fundamentals of what each and every control on your camera can do seems like a great place to start. The relationship between aperature, shutter speed, and ISO is very fundamental, and your understanding it can be the tool to release your visions, and make them reality.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Aside from 50 years of experience using a variety of camera types and styles, I do have a degree in photography from Milwaukee Area Technical college.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.


I will of course make accomodation for people whos desire to learn is bigger than their checkbook.

If there was a person who was extremely sharp with photoshop, perhaps an exchange of knowledge could be arranged.

How did you get started teaching?

I really enjoy sharing knowledge and helping people. I am now trying to find a more organized and benificial way to do more.

What types of students have you worked with?

From very young to very old, out in the field, I often see people struggling with settings. I often stop to help them.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently spent a day walking around a nature area with a group of photographers from a camera club that I am involved with. There was so much interaction, and knowledge exchanged. It was a very fun, and rewarding day.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

It is important too choose someone who you can communicate with, and whom you trust.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What would I like to do with my camera, that I can't do with my cell phone?

What do I want to photograph?
