I am a professional photographer with over 30 years of experience doing social events, corporate and charitable events, portraiture and other studio work.

Although I am experienced in film, I now work strictly in digital imaging. I love to teach and at one point I was on the adjunct faculty of Oakton Community.

I have been helping friends and family learn to get the most out of their digital photography by utilizing all of the capabilities their equipment allows. I still have a studio location in Highland Park and would be willing to instruct students in studio lighting with hands on experience in those skills.

How to pose a subject and compose a scene is as important as the physical operation of the camera. I also offer suggestions and instruction in the use of basic
picture editing.

Photography

I am currently a professional photographer with over 30 years of experience including event photography such as corporate meetings, Weddings and other religious celebrations, and charitable events. Currently, I mostly do portraits, and studio work as well as fine art photography.

I am offering instruction in Digital Photography to include basic camera operation as well as advanced use of the equipment. In addition, I tutor how to manage lighting both on-site as well as in my studio on the North Shore.

In order to round out your digital skills, I teach basic photo editing using easily understood programs.
