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.
I had specific learning I wanted to achieve. Ryan was very helpful in making that happen. I now have specific action items to address and practice. I highly recommend Ryan
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?
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.
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.
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.
College students. A few highschool students. Returning senior students that want to learn more.
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!
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.
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?
