Hello, my name is Calder, and I'm a 23 year old professional photographer/videographer based out of Central Florida. I recently graduated Mangna Cum Laude from Skidmore College with a degree in Business and Art. Over the past year, I have given many photography tutorials for both beginning and advance DSLR owners in music photography, architecture, action shots, time-lapses, night time photography, light painting, astrophotography, and portraiture. I've also worked closely with published photographers such as Jock Sturges, Christa Kreeger Bowden, Kyle Ford, and Emma Dodge Hanson.
I take a hands-on approach to teaching. For photography, video, and Adobe work, I feel the best way to improve your ability as a photographer is to practice as you learn, not sit back and watch the instructor work alone. Tutorials address shooting style, exposure settings, lighting and composition considerations, and subject interaction - working together out in the field or indoors to understand how a good photograph is made. Until you have things like the relationship between f-stop and shutter speed, ISO speed and image quality, and lens choice and crop factor explained extensively in person, it is difficult to understand even the most basic principles of photography.
If you have a DSLR and want better results, I guarantee you won't find another person locally with a better understanding of consumer and pro-sumer photo/video equipment. I can also take you into Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere, and Lightroom to show you how to take your work to the next level.
