About Alison

I am an artist who has been producing photographs and well as videos for many years. I graduated with a B.F.A. in Photography from Cornell University, and an M.F.A. from Parsons the New School for Design. I have exhibited both nationally and internationally, and am passionate about helping students who want to learn and further their skills in photography.

I am interested in working with high school students who are looking to develop a strong portfolio to apply to colleges with. I remember how daunting the task was as I applied to schools and the lack of college guidance available for the arts within a high school program. I will work with each student to create a tailored program in order to apply with the best portfolio possible.

I am also excited to work with students on location -- helping them to understand how lighting and composition work in a very hands on lesson. I will work with students to help them better understand their voice while photographing together during our lesson.

I am a photographer and video artist who has used the Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Premiere, Indesign) extensively. My artistic career has allowed me to exhibit nationally and internationally, as well as garner awards and residencies in France, Finland, and China.

I am extremely passionate about photography and want you to be just as excited by it!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Photography

I have a BFA in Photography from Cornell and an MFA in Photography from Parsons the New School for Design. I am a photographic artist, and have exhibited my work nationally and internationally. I have taught an introductory digital photography class to a mixed age range of students, and was the teaching assistant to a Freshman Photography class at Parsons.

Knowledgeable, engaging, and attentive tutor — Alison was a wonderful tutor. She asked all of the right questions to set the goals of the session and to make the most use of our time together. She helped me brush up on my basic photography skills and came very well prepared with a packet of information that she provided me with. I'd highly recommend her to anyone who'd like to improve or brush up on their photography skills! ...
