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

1. I first like to find out where the passion for photography comes from with the student. What makes them want to pick up the camera. 

2. Have them list what they feel their strengths and weaknesses are with photography.

3. What they want to learn from me, that will help improve their photography. 

4. What type of camera, lenses, flashes, and software they have at their deposal. 

5. Layout a game plan if that's from seeing what we can accomplish in one lesson to mapping out a year-long lesson plan. 

6. Get to shooting

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

Kris is also heavily involved in mentorship and education, sitting on the board of the New York City chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers. He regularly speaks at universities and seminars about the business of photography and has been an instructor and judge at workshops like DC SHOOTOFF. "One of my greatest enjoyments is giving back to the photography community," he says.

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

$200 up to two hours in the Manhattan borough and $100 an hour after that. For areas outside of Manhattan up to 20miles add a $50 per lesson fee. For multiple lessons, package deals can be discussed. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with a wide range of students ranging from the hobbyist, photography students at universities, active service members, to professional photographers. 

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

Find the right type of instructor that matches the type of photography that you want to learn. I specialize in reportage, editorial & commercial portraiture and food.
