I am a mother of 3 older children and am currently pursuing a Photography major at College of Dupage. I have a 4.0 GPA and have been at the top of the class. Photography has always been a passion of mine; after having worked for 25 years, I have retired and have decided to pursue my passion. I recently had an opportunity to shadow a photographer in the field as a class assignment; I brought along my portfolio for him to critique and he hired me on the spot!

Great photography takes patience, knowledge, and practice. Any camera can take great pictures if you can apply the basic principals. I would love the opportunity take what I have learned and help someone else realize their passion.
I believe in helping students find the answers rather than spoon feeding them information. At some point, I have had to tutor all three of my children in some very hard subjects like geometry, trig, and Chemistry with great success. I believe I have a tutoring approach that allows them to gain the most out of the subject matter.

I look forward to working with those of you that a seriously committed to understanding what makes a great photographer.

Photography

I have just completed a full semester load of Photography at College of DuPage. I have always been an avid photographer and decided to make it my full time profession. I was the top student in every class and earned As on every photo assignment and test. I took over 15,000 pictures this semester to solidify my skills. My one professor was shocked to find out that I had not been in the business for a long time. He said my work was better than many long time professionals in the business. He confirmed that I have a natural talent for the subject matter. This week, I went on a ride along with a professional photographer to fulfill one of my assignments. I brought my portfolio with me for him to critique and he hired me on the spot. I have tutored three children through Geometry, Trigonometry, and Chemistry with great success. I would like to share my passion with students that a interested in truly understanding the principals of photography.
