I have been a professional photographer
for over 30 years. I specialize in people and landscapes.
My work has won professional and artistic awards .
It has been included in fine art exhibitions,
encyclopedias, museum collections and has been
published in magazines around the world.
I love being able to create on paper my vision of what i see before my eyes. Being able to help others understand the technical aspects pf photography and helping them to put on paper their personal visions of the world.
many people think photography is magic,
and it is!
it is magic that can be understood
and explained. i enjoy that challenge.
George was amazing. He helped me to get past a technical problem that I was struggling with for months. Plus, he's been graciously willing to continue help me further still beyond the class. I consider him a friend.
What a professional

I have been teaching small groups of
and find it very rewarding and fun.
$125 for first two hours, then $50 per hour after per session.
assistants i was using when photographing weddings asked me to start teaching.
people who aleady have some knowlege of photography and reealize there is more to it than just pushing a button to "shoot" whatever is in front of them.
i would say the student should look for someone whose work they admire and want to emulate. they should also make sure the instructor can understand them and relate to their particular needs. an instructor who is patient and fun is just as important as experienced. people having fun love learning, and instructors having fun love teaching.
