About Holly

I am a photographer based in Los Angeles. I graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology BFA Photography program and have been tutoring for 3 years.

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"!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Adobe Photoshop

I have 8 years of Photoshop experience, 5 years of college courses in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.

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.
