FAQs


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

I like to find out what level students are at and develop criteria based on their individual needs. I'm usually hard to pin down due to my schedule as I am frequently on assignments. If I am unavailable upon your request, please contact me at a later date. Weekends work best for me.


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

Military photographer, videographer and graphics illustrator for 32 +years. Distinguished Honor graduate in my photography studies in 1991 and have continued to add additional skills over the years. A Photoshop user since 1994. For a glimpse of my work, visit my SmugMug page: https://tadbrowning.smugmug.com/Portfolio-2019

I consider myself extremely advanced in all aspects of photography but I have a lot of patience as I have trained dozens of photographers over the years. I was chosen to be the photographer for a 4-Star General and documented his activities throughout Central and South America in the mid nineties. I also worked as a forensic photographer for the Texas Rangers for a little over two years.


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

My lessons are done in two parts. Once hired, I provide a study sheet that allows the students to gain some basic knowledge of photography so the first lesson is easier. I typically want a minimum of 2 hours with a student, the first hour is to discuss the students needs and assess what they want to get out of their journey and the second is hands on instruction on how to achieve their goals and shoot some of the types of photos they are interested in. 


How did you get started teaching?

As a military photographer, I was at the top of my class, over the years I have mentored many Soldiers in Photography, Journalism and Broadcasting as well as graphic illustration. I interact with my peers and subordinates on a regular basis to further enhance not only their skills but my own as I may know a lot, but I am always learning.


What types of students have you worked with?

All ages.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I'm fond of all of my events as I have a passion for what I do. I still take bad photos but I am a good editor. One of my recent accomplishments had to do with publishing an illustrated Christmas book. Santa's last Christmas, a Christmas crime scene from a poem I wrote while working as a forensic photographer. I didn't do the actual illustration but I did the drawings for the illustrations. I also did the PR work for Al Blaschke, who tied the world record for tandem skydiving at the age of 100.


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

Never stop learning, if you hire someone that thinks they know everything, keep moving and find another instructor. Life is a journey and full of experiences. Practice, practice and practice some more.
