I am a photographer based in Los Angeles. I graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology BFA Photography program and have been tutoring since 2014.

I began tutoring through F.I.T.'s tutoring department and then acquired private students nearer to graduation. I teach my students basics about photography, file managing, Adobe programs, Google applications; such as Google Docs, Google Drive, and Google Slides; and how they can be useful to a photographer's business and workflow. I teach photography business tactics and how to use social media platforms to support your work. When needed, I can help trouble shoot camera and equipment issues. I am also available to teach studio lighting! My personal photography is cinematic and period specific to the 1930's-1960's. I am inspired by old movies, Hitchcock is my favorite!

I am experienced with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Bridge, Digital and Film Photography, Dark Room developing and printing, Scanning negatives, Printing, and am an Art History Minor.

I use visual references and draw funny cartoons in review notes, and give things nick-names so they stick in your brain. Also, a wise man once told me, "If you aren't understanding, I'll explain it a new way"!

Photography

I began taking photography classes in high school, I completed all of our 1 and a half years of the classes available, then did another half year of a private study. My teacher went away on maternity leave and I taught the class in her place (to aid our substitute who was not a sub for art classes). I continued classes in college, I went to a community college for one year before F.I.T. and upon our teacher's absence one day, was asked once more to teach a class. In F.I.T. I was in a four year Photography program and achieved my BFA and graduated in the top third of my class (will be glad to send a photo of my diploma if that helps!) I was hired by my college, F.I.T., to tutor, and then privately and continue to tutor those students today.

Incredible

Holly is an amazing teacher. Very clear and concise. She describes your camera in a way that is very easy to understand and apply to your photography goals. I would highly recommend her.

Wendy, 1 lesson with Holly

Holly was easy-going, very helpful and was great at making things clear and easy to understand.

She gave great advise on photographing my work, and then working with images in and around LR--helped make information manageable and easy to implement. Very Helpful!

Candace, 1 lesson with Holly

Excellent! Visionary! Creative and Patient

I hired Holly to assist my 16-year-old with learning the ins/outs of her new camera as well as take on a location photo shoot. Can't say enough. We both loved her teaching and artistic style.

Amazing!

Holly was able to teach me Lightroom in a way that was incredibly approachable. For how long I have been a professional photographer, I've always had this dumb fear of Lightroom and just avoided it! Holly made it a breeze, and I very much look forward to our next lesson. Thank you Holly!

Holly Fun Photography Teacher

Holly explained to me the basics of photography on my first day in a way I could understand. She is fun and easy going and I felt very comfortable asking her questions. I no longer feel intimidated by my camera and look forward to learning more from Holly.

Extremely Knowledgeable

Holly is very bright, extremely knowledgable about the ins and outs of photo editing and is super-well organized. She is clearly a dedicated tutor, has a ton of patience and finds the most creative ways to teach even the basics. She's the best!
