I've been a photographer for over 20 years. I was the newspaper photographer in college. I teach students the principles of photography and encourage them to explore to develop their own style. I teach at my studio where I cover lighting techniques and on the field where I challenge my students to understand the natural light and outdoor conditions. I have created model's portfolios and helped other photographers create their own portfolios. I cover portraits, fashion, dance competitions, sports, architecture landscapes and studio experimental photography. I give each student as much time so they can understand and utilise the skills on their own. My IG is Mpela007

I created a meet up group where several photographers meet and practice. The knowledge levels varied from very beginners to experts. I spent most of my time helping the novice Photographers and it gave me a great satisfaction to be able to help and teach the different techniques. I also have to go through the teaching process to friends that required help with their equipment. I also created a photography club at work and I was teaching my colleagues how to operate their cameras and equipment
