I have several areas of expertise and i truly enjoy the art of education. I love to learn as much as I love to teach. As I teach you, I will learn too. I emphasize my education and lessons on composition and do not teach "Phone Photography."
Thanks for the opportunity!
The passion of teaching as well as the passion of those that want to learn, especially within the creative communities. I love to teach.
I like to have a short conversation with my student prior to working with them for the first time. I like to get to know them and them me. Depending on the subject I am teaching will depend on the amount of time we spend in the getting-to-know-you phase. It could be anywhere from 5 minutes to a half an hour and sometimes longer. I do not charge for this part of the program. Thank you

Prices range from $35 to $75 for each online lesson and $50 or more for One on One lessons plus travel expenses. I also offer my students the ability to come with me on photo shoots or photo excursions. The prices for these options vary depending on what type of Photography we are doing and for how long.
When my photography mentor had an accident playing handball and was out of commission for several weeks I took over his class. This was a life-changing experience for me. I have chosen to teach the art of cinematography and photography on a regular basis because it is what I enjoy the most. Helping my students learn how to compose wonderful imagery is my goal! If I can do that I have accomplished Happiness!!
