I'm a 30-year veteran of newspaper photography and an adjunct professor of photography at one of the DC area's best known colleges of art and design. I can teach on every level from beginner to Masters in Journalism candidates. My experience, from staff photographer to award winning photo editor, means my students get the attention, coaching and technical instruction they need to see and appreciate the world and to interpret it photographically for others.
