About this pro

Combined with my photo journalistic style of capturing events, families, nature and performance I specialize in professional branding and style coaching. This gives my students and clients an expanded view of the photography through learning one's own personal style, expression and the art communication with photography. 

My muse is people. I love wothking with people to support them is realizing the talent they already have that we will build upon. I enjoy learning by teaching as the process is always two fold when we learn together. I have had a wonderful career in photography and built everything on my own. I believe we are all able to accomplish what we want once we gain the confidence. I love developing that with my students and clients.

FAQs


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

First we will get aquanted with what is most important to gain from our experience together. This gives us a platform for success. 

Then I create a the number of sessions agreed upon, curated for the level of experience, and students goals. 

for instance beginner class 

- settings of the camera what they mean and the visual expression / photo of each setting. 
- framing: leveling and framing your subject to tell a story, depth of field and rule of thirds. 
- how digital cameras work, history and current mechanical functions, this enhances a students understanding of what is happening inside the camera. 
- photo excursion, creating images using provided settings in multiple lighting situations. How to get the shot no matter what! 
- I usually end my series with an event of some kind  (gallery show, printed top 2 images etc) 


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

I started my photography career in grade school learning film photography and mass media. I continued to learn with each camera as they evolved through time. I am self taught beyond that hard have learned from mentors, working in film production in NYC for 6 years, and building my own business having a full time career in photography for over 16 years. 


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

Standard pricing is 100.00 per hour. Currently offering 50.00 per hour as a New Years welcome offer. 
I do custom packages for specific areas of focus (fashion photography - providing a whole experience with modals, make up and education, nature wild life excursions, etc) 


How did you get started teaching?

I was asked to teach by a school in St. Louis and by an individual who wanted to learn fashion photography. I fell in love with the process!! I love working with individuals as well class room settings. 


What types of students have you worked with?

One on one adult lesions, camps, after school programs as well students in a class room. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently taught a group of 15 students at a junior high school in St. Louis. This was part of a program called, looking through the lens of African-American children. This Was an absolute passion project as I worked with kids not only teaching them the basics in how to use a camera but how to recognize their own perspective of the world and how it communicates to the broader public. This led to a gallery show that was seen by the public and the students pride and surprise to be so honored in a display of their work was one of my greatest joys. 


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

My advice is to find a teacher you click with. Being comfortable and able to recognize the skills you already have is essential to Maintaining interest and building knowledge that leads to success.


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

before contacting a teacher I believe it is important to know exactly how much time you want to commit to the process. Also knowing what your budget is is essential to creating a program that will work for you. Also knowing what you want to learn and what you want the end result to be I believe is the key to success for both parties. How to know what the end result will be is asking yourself a series of questions: what will I be able to do at the end of the course that I can't do now? What will I have learned that will enhance my ability? What type of teacher do I need - structured, - fun and playful, - focused and methodical?
