Prior to meeting, I like to go through a list of questions over the phone that are designed to help me understand what the student would like learn. This process allows us to get to know one another and for us focus on specific topics to get the most out of each lesson.

I always enjoyed talking about photography, whether it be a technical question or aesthetic. I then joined a volunteer organization that I was taking photographs for at the events and some of the members would continuously ask photography related questions. That is when I decided that I should make a business using my photography knowledge.
I have worked mostly with beginners who would like to learn the basics of digital photography. However, I can teach lighting, retouching, compostion, workflow, conceptual ideas, Zone system.
I recently photographed a birthday party of a one year old boy. The parents rented out a local space for the party. Family and friends were invited. The parents were completely open to my suggestions for pictures. So along with the traditional family photos and group shots, I did some funny face pictures with the kids at the party and a cake smash with birtday boy. The parents were very happy with the final images provided.
I would look for someone who is patient, communicates well and inspires the creative process.
These questions will be explored in question 1 during the pre session phone call. However, the student should think about why they photograph and what are they looking to achieve with their photography.
