I teach the study of light which is photography in all forms using the camera as a tool and Photoshop or LightRoom as a digital darkroom. Graduating with a Bachelor of Science Photography Degree with honors and over 8 years in the commercial realm has prepared me to help you. My courses range from beginner to advanced. Working individually or in a group. Experimentation, practice and light mixed with passion creates a unique style with each individual. In photography we don't take a picture, we create an image. See you in class!
I have been wildly passionate all my life about photography. So much so that when I had a life change in 2011, I decided to obtain my degree in Photography. Being the high energy and driven person I am; I didn't want just any degree, I went for the Bachelor of Science which aided me in learning all 9 forms of the photography, light waves, color temperature, color theory, all parts and functions of a DSLR camera and lens, the digital dark room, Lightroom, Photoshop, In-design, typography, graphic design, elements are art and principles of design, business management, business ethics, psychology, history, public speaking, marketing and so much more. I have enjoyed putting each of these skills into real world examples and experience. It has been a personal and professional journey of discovery and learning which I am very proud of and accomplished as a member of the National Technical Honor Society and Deans List graduate not only in the Bachelors program for the Associates as well and all accomplished while working full-time, raising a family and being a mature learner. If I can do it; So Can You!

The first class is all about you! We review your equipment and your comfort levels, knowledge and portfolio. Then; I create curriculum from a hands on and independent focus with fun homework practices for each student. A contract for scheduling, locations of study and payment policy is required before courses begin. I'm a kind, caring instructor with a love of discovery and learning. Every day is a new adventure when seeing with light & love in photography.
