    Brian is an amazing tutor. I took 3 session class in the same day. It was lot of fun. He was very patient and took time to understand what my skill level is and then proceeded from there. We started with technical basics and then he went through my camera settings and finally the practical. Though we went over the allotted time but he did not charge me extra for that. There are a lot of good photographers but not many can teach you with the same enthusiasm the way Brian does. I will definitely recommend him.

    Very professional and works hard to get the right shot! He is very creative and will shoot until he gets the shot.



FAQs


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

Lessons are 3 fold: (1) Technical skills, (2) Conceptual creative skills, and (3) Field shoot. These apply to various subjects- portrait, landscape, and wildlife. Technical skills teach you how to use your camera, as well as advanced techniques such as image stacking and light bracketing for stunning landscapes. Conceptual knowledge includes composition, layout, and other artistic elements.

Excellent with all skill levels-- I adjust the lesson to meet your experience.

1) Celebrity Photographer: potraits include President Jimmy Carter, James Earl Jones, John C. Reilly, and many more.
