Hello! My name is Laura. I have been a photographer for over 10 years and have been teaching photography and Photoshop through Chemeketa Community College for over 4 years. I enjoy sharing information with interested and motivated students almost as much as I enjoy photography so if you have a burning passion to learn (or even a smoldering ember to learn), I can help you enhance your photographic skills, changing photography from an occasional activity to a loved hobby with a personalized artistic style.

Adobe Photoshop

Hello. Today's world of photography has replaced the chemically laden, dangerous, and time consuming darkroom and with an addictive software where you can manipulate your digital images from the comfort of your computer chair. Photoshop can change day to night, boost brilliant sunsets, or even create fantasy scenes by blending two or more images together. The possibilities are limited only by your own imagination.

As a professional photographer working in today's industry, I have had to get to know Adobe products, specifically Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, very well. I have experience not only in using Photoshop for minor technical adjustments, but also in creating digital composites and albums. Having been an instructor through Chemeketa's community education, I have taught students from all age ranges and skill levels. If you are having issues understanding Photoshop or just want to learn a new skill, let's get together.


Hello! My name is Laura. I have been studying photography for over a decade now and I still find it a fascinating subject. Not only have I mentored under some of the best photographers I could find, I have also enhanced my photography on-location in some of the prettiest places in the western United States. I have been employed in the portrait photography industry for over 6 years, working with both natural light and studio lighting. I specialize in weddings and children's portraiture, but I have experience in couples, individuals, maternity, newborn, seniors, and families. My knowledge does not stop at portraiture, though. I have also had my nature and scenic fine art work featured in local art galleries.

But enough about what I have done, you want to know what I can do for you. I have many years of experience teaching a multitude of subjects, from art to self-defense to English to anatomy. These years of teaching have given me a deeper understanding of how to communicate and share information in the easiest and most efficient way. I have been teaching through Chemeketa Community College (both the Visual Communications program and the Community Education department) for over 4 years, where I have written a textbook to accompany my classes. I have been able to work with students from all walks of life and have always done everything I can to answer every question and help each student find his or her own personal style. Whether you want to know more about your camera and its features, photography in general, portraiture, nature and scenics, or you simply want to develop your style more, I can help you.


Writing is one of our primary forms of communication, from writing essays and papers to writing letters and emails, one that remains difficult for many people. I can help you become a better writer through lessons and assignments, or I can simply proofread what you have already written.
