I am visual production manager and photographer with extensive international experience who will teach you how to become a shooter who is calm under pressure, dependable, and goal-driven in achieving outstanding visuals. You will learn to capture the essence of events, faces, forms, and scenes with an expert eye.
I live for capturing the moments that you will never see again. Keeping an eye for the moments when you (the photographer) become inviisible. Candid captures fuel my soul!
I also love the power of post processing and what a little time behind the computer can do in order to take your images to the next level!
Bryan is very easy going and technically very savvy behind the lens. He patiently showed me the ins and outs of shooting, how to use my eye creatively, and what to look out for when shooting on the fly. He has a ton of first hand experience with shooting music videos, and a great eye for candid photography. He's a wonderful teacher!
First and foremost is to get a camera in your hand. We will start shooting automatic and focus on composition. As we progress we will move through Aperture Priority mode, Shutter Speed Priority mode, and finally manual.
If you wish to take your photos into post processing and tackle photoshop, I will sit side by side with you in a constructive environment to run you through the tool bar that take your photos to the next level.
