About Art

I am a freelance professional photographer who has extensive experience in both studio and location lighting. I have mentored assistants for over 20 years with many of them going on to successful careers of their own. I have experience in both analog and digital platforms as well as expert Photoshop skills. I love to teach and can communicate effectively using a wealth of experience and formal education as a teaching tool.

I am gratified when a student demonstrates mastery of a skill and produces work that he/she is proud of. I teach and learn...sharing knowledge is a two way street, especially in an artistic environment. For me there is no better way of transferring knowledge than to answer questions and perhaps share an insight with a student.

Curiosity and creativity are the essential components of a learning experience. Photography demands both. Photoshop is a tool that expands the horizons of both. It is a tool, like a lens or camera. Learn to use it as an adjunct to your vision and your work will improve. I can guide you through the process.

Experience is what I share. I can teach you to make the technology second nature, to transcend f-stops and digital stuff. I can teach you to see the light, capture the moment and produce superlative images.
