Dear Parents and Students,
As a photographer with many years of experience and a BFA in Photography
, I have a lot of knowledge to share with you or your child. Using my experience in teaching students of all ages, I will tutor you or your child in the art
of creative photography. I have worked with 6-8 grade students as a guest artist/photographer at our local middle school and 9th grade high school students enhancing their knowledge of digital art using Photoshop
. I have lead children in a workshop where we have used the camera and computer
to create a claymation art piece which was submitted to the Brooklyn Art Library. Sharing my knowledge of photography and Photoshop with adults has also been extremely rewarding.
My approach to tutoring photography is very hands on and begins with the basic functions
on how the camera creates an image. Once you or your child has the basic grasp of the function of the machine, then I will start to teach you how to see through the lens. Lessons will include the topics of composition, exposure, and lighting. We will start by going out into nature to learn these elements of photography and, as you progress, then going to studio photography techniques and the use of the speed light flash
system will open more doors. I will introduce you to all aspects of photography including landscape, portraiture, and still-life. In addition to creating the image in the camera, I will also teach you how to edit and enhance your digital imagery on the computer using the Photo Shop
program. By the end of the lessons you or your child will not only be proficient in most aspects of photography but will also have enough finished work to build a wonderful portfolio. The final goal is for your child to create several finished pieces to have a small showing for friends and family.
