I am a self taught photographer and photo editor. Over the course of 10 years, I have learned my craft through extensive research and trial and error. In doing so, I have learned why certain things are done with a DSLR or lighting or in Adobe Photoshop and not just done things because a book does so. I am very down to earth and patient from this process and look towards teaching others the photography and post production craft in the same way. There are a ton of things to learn, but there are also a bunch of books and classes that are going to teach you things you aren't going to ever use....so why waste time and money in doing so?

I want to teach what people want to learn. Just want to learn the manual settings of your camera...cool! Just want to learn which studio lights to buy and why? awesome! Do you see a Photoshop editing style that you are curious as to how it is done? let me see it, I will show you!
