Photography Instruction-Mentoring-Image Capture, Post Processing, Printing-Digital Asset Management

You just spent a considerable amount of money to upgrade from a point and shoot camera, but your results are no better than they were before the new camera. There are too many camera settings so you set the camera to “auto everything” mode letting the camera make all the creative decisions, yet you continue to be disappointed with the results. You are thinking of selling your camera and getting another point and shoot. Or you are totally committed to making your photos better and you just don’t know where to turn to get advice or have a schedule that cannot accommodate a traditional classroom schedule in a school.

If any of the above describes you, then I know I can help.

I will help you understand all camera settings, achieve consistent exposure, understand flash, creative lighting in studio/on location

We will discuss aspects of good image content and composition. Subject material will include event, nature, landscape/urban landscape, macro, sports, street, portrait, etc

I will provide advice and guidance in the selection of camera gear and computer equipment, as well as setup optimization.

I have firsthand experiencw with Nikon DSLR from D40X to D800 support, and can provide some Canon support

Primary focus is Windows PC, with some MAC support.

Software applications supported include - Photoshop CS6, Lightroom, DXO Optics Prom, Nik Suite, Topaz Collection, Photomatix HDR. Topics covered will include image optimization, sharpening, noise control, shooting RAW
I will provide guidance on establishing a color managed workflow for predictable, consistent prints.

You can learn all that you need to get you the results you are seeking, in a personalized, student-centered setting, arranged around your schedule. In addition, you can get answers to your questions by email, one-on-one training using online collaboration/remote access software, right in the comfort of your own home.
Training can be delivered in person, in two hour sessions that will cost $100 each. You will receive personalized instruction at your pace based on your individual learning style. There will be occasions where there will be a benefit to delivering instruction in a small group session (no more than 4) in which participation is strictly optional. These can take place in the field (recommended for shooting), by phone (recommended for gear and computer selection advice and guidance), or on your own computer using remote access software over an internet connection.

I am a member of Professional Photographers of America, (PPA) and I currently participate in the Nikon Professional Services program (NPS).
