About this pro

I will help you understand the features of your camera in an easy, simple method. I'm patient and I'll make sure to go at your pace while you're learning. You'll be handling your camera for the best type of learning...a hands-on experience.

I started shooting professionally when I opened my studio in 1984. I taught film cameras back then for a long time. When digital cameras came along, I had to study and learn all about Histograms and much more. Today I can handle teaching all brands of cameras.

I passed the Certified Professional Photographer license by PPA in 1996. I have won many awards thru GPPPDV and I constantly strive to learn more each year with new classes I take for myself to keep up with the ever changing photography market.

I hope I can help you "see the light"!

It takes time to put all the pieces together when you are starting out. I love when I see the light bulb go off in my students heads...I know that it all makes sense to them then. Love helping others to enjoy phorography as a hobby or profession. I have many excellent reviews posted in various sites by students I have helped. Please give me a try. I'm so sure I can help you learn that I even offer a money-back guarantee!

    Kathy is a great teacher: professional, personable and patient. She works with you hands-on your camera so that you are learning theory and, most important, practical application how to 'frame' a photograph allowing for light, speed of subject, distance...all to develop muscle memory to take the photos you want. She is an incredible teacher who makes learning enjoyable.

How did you get started teaching?

When I was just 20 yrs old I worked in a camera store. My boss started classes to help camera owners understand the way to correctly take a picture. He threw me in the fire and had me teaching if I wanted to keep my job. Turns out, I was good at it and loved it too. So I have learned how to help my students find an easier way to learn all the technical parts of phortography.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have taught all ages; mostly adults but kids love to learn too!

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

All events I photograph have some kind of lasting memory for me. Working with people and especially sharing the love I have for taking photos and also getting to know them is a joy.

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

Come prepared with all your questions. I'm here to answer them!

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

Can you find the time to learn about your passion?
