As a graduate from Fitchburg State University, my knowledge of industry standards and equipment is up to date. I have professionally assisted with other professional photographers, worked as a photography editor and retoucher, and manage my own photography business where I shoot images of Rhode Island, edit and process my own images and maintain clientele. I have knowledge of equipment ranging from traditional film and darkroom in 35mm, medium format, and 4x5 large format, to color darkroom printing, matting and framing, to the digital DSLR cameras dominating the industry. I regularly use Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Lightroom 3, with knowledge of the entire Adobe Creative Suite (Dreamweaver and Illustrator not included).
I also have 4 years of experience teaching children ages 8-18 how to sail on Narragansett Bay. I have hosted a small lecture with a group of adult women regarding quick tips and helpful hints to improving your photography. I have also been part of classroom instruction at a local High School, showing advanced photography students how to take captivating studio portraits and how to apply these skills to outdoor portraiture.
