About Felicia

I am a professional photographer in Oakland, CA.

I have an MFA and a BA in photography and work in both digital and film mediums.

In my work, I am equally at home shooting wedding and special event photography as I am with fine art. I shoot many self portraits.

I teach classes and private lessons on many subjects, including all aspects of photography (both film and digital). I am a computer wiz (especially if its Mac based) and I'd be happy to show you everything I know about Macs or Adobe products. I jumped around a lot in college, so I amassed a large knowledge bank of the sciences also.

I have years of tutoring experience, so I am able to customize a session to fit your needs, whether that is hands on or more lecture based. I can go slow and I can go quickly. The student leads the show!

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.

Botany

Botany was my minor in college. I had the pleasure of taking biology, botany, plant physiology, and other interesting classes. I spent much time in a laboratory with my face in a microscope!

College was also when I discovered my green-thumb, spending hours working in our campus greenhouse.

I apply my botanical knowledge to my ever-fruiting produce garden and an unreasonable collection of houseplants.

I combine my plant interests with my photography career in the form of chlorophyll printing, a photography process exploiting the mechanism of photosynthesis.

Macintosh

I am an Apple Geek! I have been working on Mac computers since 2004.

I currently use a MacBook, a MacMini, an iPhone, and an iPad. I have in depth knowledge of most Apple programs and OS.

I love using shortcuts, quickkeys, and other Mac-based tricks.

If I don't know the answer to a problem, I know how to locate an answer in about 30 seconds.

Photography

I have both a BA and an MFA in photography. I own my own photography business and teach one-on-one photography lessons to select clients.

I work in film photography (medium and large format), digital photography (Nikon based), toy camera photography (holga/Diana), darkroom and alternative processes, studio photography (using both strobes and hot lights), portraiture and self portraiture. I often shoot wedding and event photography, as well as product photography and the occasional odd photo gig.

I have 7 years of college and over 10 years of experience...there isn't much that I don't have knowledge of, if not expertise!

Public Speaking

I have been doing public speaking, performances, and storytelling since I was a young child.

I know many techniques (beyond the standard "picture them in underwear") that can boost confidence and have a considerable effect on public speaking effectiveness.

I was the speaker at both my High School and College graduations, as well as at many smaller functions throughout my life.

With a little coaching, you'll feel more at ease in front of a crowd also!

Went at exactly the right pace for me

Felicia K. is a terrific tutor! She helped me both with some Mac issues and with digital photography stuff. She has an impressive resume, including having working at Looking Glass Camera store for 2 years. Her pace was just right for me. She seemed intuitively right in synch with my pace of note taking, and so on. I can not give Felicia a higher recommendation. She's great!
