About this pro

I am passionate about photography, and about teaching. It took me a long time to learn what I know now. I could have learned quickly, if only I had a teacher who would give me the tips and tricks that I needed! I love sharing those things with my students and watching them grasp concepts and bring amazing images to life!

FAQs


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

I teach either one-on-one or in a small classroom setting, in order to ensure that all questions are answered. I strive to make sure that my students have a good understanding of the concepts being taught before leaving the lesson.


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

I have been a photographer for several years, but learned in 2016 that I wanted to educate myself a little more, so I took some classes. The classes opened my eyes, but they were very large and rather expensive. I hope to impart what I have learned in a smaller setting and offer classes at a reasonalbe price.


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

Most of my classes are one to two hours, and I typically start with the basics. For these types of classes the price starts at $45


How did you get started teaching?

I met a lady who reminded me of myself several years ago. She loved photography, and finally was able to buy a nice DSLR, but found that she didn't know how to use it. When she told me her situation, I offered to teach her, and I found it invigorating! 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students from ages 18 or 19 years to one student in his 70's. I am open to working with children, though I have not yet had the opportunity.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Watching one particular student fully grasp a concept. She was SO happy and excited, she couldn't wait to go try it out. And we did - together! It was rewarding and fun.


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

Find someone who is passionate about photography and teaching!


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

That each camera is different. I am not familiar with some of the smaller point-and-shoot cameras, so I am not always able to go through all of the settings one-by-one. I would recommend that you learn as much as possible (YouTube) about your camera before bringing it to a class.
