Thank you for taking the opportunity to learn more about me and how I can help you learn photography. For over 30 years I have worked in many aspects of photography including portraits, events, products and more using 35 mm film, 2 ¼ and 4x5 formats and currently with digital. There are two parts to a great picture; capturing the image and the process {lab and/or computer} used to make the print. Together I can help you learn how to do both and create great pictures.

What you want in photography can be different from what someone else wants to learn. Over the years I have studied with Masters of Photography, have been certified as a photographer, and have been active in the Professional Photography Association {PPA}, the Arizona PPA and Wedding Photographers International and I share this knowledge with people like yourself so the art of great photography continues and is not lost in the quantity of digital photography compared to quality pictures.

I have general sessions that can give you a great overview to what you want to learn. I also leave time so I can customize what you want most to learn so you get the most for your money. Success may be as easy as one session on one subject or maybe a few sessions’ touching on several areas of interest. No matter what you will enjoy your experience “Taking Quality Pictures That Are Priceless”™.

Photography

I have been an active photographer for 30+ years. I graduated from the New York Institute of Photography in 1987. I have volunteered to teach photography to at risk youth for a local outreach program. I have written a guide on how to hire a wedding photographer and been published by a local trade magazine. I have resources to create and customize lessons as well as standard plans to help clients learn "hands on".
