I am a professional Photographer with over 32 years in the field of commercial Photography. Working both in studio and on location, I have experience in almost every aspect of the field Including baby, children and family and personal portraiture, headshots, modeling and theatrical portfolios, and extensive experience in wedding photography. I am also well versed in commercial product photography from small products to large industrial applications and architectural photography. I am fully versed in all film formats and digital, and have a complete working knowledge of Black and White/Color darkroom and retouching with Photoshop, Elements, CS, and Lightroom. I have worked for several studios specializing in high volume portraiture, school, sports, and yearbook photography. I also ran my own successful family portrait and wedding photography business for almost 20 years. I start by teaching the basics. Light theory and basic camera functions proper exposure, using Depth of field, composition, and visualization... A manual film camera is helpful, but not required...
