About this pro

I am truly the definition of extravert so I love to be with people and photograph the beauty they ALL have!  So teaching comes natural to me as I want everyone to be able to feel the joy when they get that aweseome shot using the skills they have learned from me.

I not only LOVE being a photographer but I love to work with students and see them learn to love photography as much as I do.  When that "lightbulb" goes off and seeing the excitement and light in their eyes truly brings me joy.

FAQs


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

During the first private lesson I will evaluate their skill level and then come up with an acceptable lesson plan to improve their skill and work on topics they are interested it developing.


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

I have been a professional portrait photographer since 2011.  I started my photography journey in 1986 when I started a photography class in high school.  

I have had a passion for photogrpahy ever since I picked up my first Pentax SLR that my father loaned me for the first class.  I continued my passion as a hobby until 2010 when I took an internship with a professional photographer while living overseas.  

I returned to the United States in 2012 and I opened my studio here in Fairfax Station and it's been a blessing to go to work each day.


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

$60 per hour for private lessons.  Payable a full month at a time to keep your time slot reserved.  Make-up lessons available when student/instructor schedule permits.  

Please note you can choose how many times per month we meet such as weekly, every other week, or monthly.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching for some corporations that wanted to offer photography classes on site in 2012.  I continued to teach at schools in Bethesda, Maryland for their before and after school programs.  I have also taught classes at local REC centers and privately with photographers and that want to advance their skills.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with kids as young at 7 years old up to adults.  All with various skills levels from beginning to advanced.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I love photographing kids of all ages.  My current favorites are working with High School Seniors as they are so creative.  But I adore kids too and one of my favorite annual events is photogrpahing a Father Daughter ball for military families.


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

Find out if the teacher is a good fit for your skill and level.  Be sure to be specific about what you know and don't know.  This way you and your teacher can be sure you are a good fit for each other.


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

Think about your skill level and be honest with yourself and your instructor.  You are there to learn so having a good sense of self and where you are will really speed along the process for your instructor to get you to the skill level you desire.
