Let's start off by getting to know me. My name is Michael and I love photography.
In 2009, I graduated from Albright College in Reading, PA with a dual degree in History and Art with a minor in Photography. While at Albright, I was twice selected into the Albright College's Student juried srt dhow. I also had work published in the AGON magazine publication and "The Albrightian" student newspaper. As part of my coursework, I learned to produce work in the traditional dark room and digitally.
After graduating from Albright, I enrolled into Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communication for my Master's in Photography. I chose to concentrate in commercial/studio photography while also shooting all sports for Syracuse. Photography coursework included studio, multimedia, and fashion. Some related classwork that I took was design, web design, and communication law which geared towards photography. Again, I participated in the student newspaper "The Daily Orange." After my year at Syracuse, I was published in the national magazine "Tricycle: A Buddhist Review" and online magazine "The Ultimate Athlete: College Edition." I have also shot for several other clients ranging from singers to maternity to wedding. Needless to say I have tons of experience in my young life and I want to share my experience with you.
What you will get out of me is a complete and utter love for photography and all the knowledge that I have gathered from my years in school and as a business owner. I will tailor your program to what you want to get out of it. All students will learn the basics because without the basics, great photographs are made on luck. I want to get you to think about what the outcome of the photograph will be and then process how to go about it from within the camera. Also, you will learn how to edit photographs in Photoshop properly. I will teach you how to get your idea from your head to your wall.
If you work with me, you'll get a higher education in a one-on-one, private setting for a fraction of the cost!
