About this pro

I'm able to adapt to any clients needs. I used to be a technology tutor at CSU. Teaching students a variety of different uses in equipment. Whether it was cameras, lenses, microphones, lights, flashes, editing software. I am always happy to teach people the ins and outs of technology so they can achieve the highest quality in their creative endeavours. 

Seeing a students eyes light up with excitment. Reminds of me of when I found my passions in the creative world of photography.

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

Learning what their specific needs are! Do they want to focus on the button controls of the camera? The internal settings? The focal lengths of a certain camera lens? 

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

I have graduated from a few different colleges and universities that are specific to the type of work I do as a freelancer. I also have a few certificates of approval to work anywhere involving media and audio technologies. 

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

I only price a potential student based on the distance from where I live. The amount of hours they want to learn. How many times they want to schedule a lesson more than once usually gets someone a very nice discount. 

I also have packages I'm happy to create with a studnet before they commit to anything. 

How did you get started teaching?

I started as CSU when I worked at DV Comm. Where I taught students how to use tons of different technologies associated with film and digital media. 

What types of students have you worked with?

College students. A few highschool students. Returning senior students that want to learn more. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently just shot a wedding engagement shoot. I really enjoyed directing four different people to throw confetti at the newly engaged couple while I burst mode captured them on my camera. Getting about 300 photos in a few seconds. That was a really fun shoot! 

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

Make sure you know that you really want to learn this. That it's your passion. If you aren't sure about photography. Don't waste your time with a tutor. You'll feel like you wasted your time. Be very pickey of you hire. Make sure they have qualifications. Ask questions. Listen to what they have to say. Overall. If you trust your instructor after your first lesson and you feel you need a few more. Don't hesitate to reach out. Because you might miss some important information. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

How many hours is a session? What kinds of photography does the teacher know? What types of cameras and lenses have they used in the field? What other accessories do they know about pertaining to photography?
