My service stands out in the form of care. I care that my "students" leave a lesson feeling like they have learned something new, or that they have increased their knowledge. I want people to be able to enjoy the camera, take photos that will make people stop for a moment, and to be able to use it to share their view of the world.
Photography has sparked adventure, has introduced me to some amazing people and it gives me calm when life is chaotic. I have worked as a pre-school, school and high school senior portrait photographer. Iʻve shot a number of weddings, anniversary parties, birthday parties and retirement functions.
My camera has taken me to some really interesting landscape and has given me the opportunity to share what I have seen.
The camera is a sharing tool and I love to help others share their lives.
Maluhia was very patient in explaining things to me, which I appreciated very much. Being a true beginner, it was nice to have an instructor who knew what she was talking about. She even brought materials with her that would further enhance my learning. I would hire her again.
She was great at explaining things and was knowledgeable. I would hire her again.
She is easy to work with. Gave me good pointers on ISO, Shutter speed and aperture.
Very knowledgeable and very friendly. I really appreciate Maluhia for going out of her way to help me become a better photographer.
I first hold a conversation with the student to access where they are in their photography experience. I would like to know if they own a camera, what kind, why they are interested in the photography and learning more, among other questions just so I can get to know them and figure out how to best help in their journey.
I studied photography in college and in a cerification program. Iʻve worked as a professional for 20 years.
Lessons start of $40 / hour, 1 hour minimum.
Travel over 20 miles may include a surcharge.
I have taught kids and teens as a volunteer. I have enjoyed sharing what I know and am very excited about helping more budding photographers of any age.
Beginning kids age 10 and up, teens to help understand their class in school, adults who have bought a new camera or want to learn more indepth lighting.
Itʻs important the student and teacher have good communication and are able to understand each other. Photography can be very technical or very artsy, neither is wrong, but the student should know where the teacher is on the scale. I am pretty much in the middle and tend to flow to what the job needs.
What sort of photography has the teacher done.
What they like to shoot
What sort of situations have they had that may have challenged them.
