I'm a full-time Photography teacher at a public high school for the past 10 years. I like working with adult students too, and have completed a teaching internship at the local city college. I hold a Masters of Fine Arts in Photography with graduate coursework from Brooks Institute and Academy of Art University (2018). I also received my BFA from the University of Arizona in 2009 where I studied Art Education with an emphasis in Photography. I have a vast knowledge of all types of photography, whether it be traditional practices in the darkroom or the latest digital trends. I also have one year of virtual teaching experience if you're interested in Online Lessons.

Since the early 2000s, I have had expansive experience with Photoshop and years of experience in commercial photography through my own photography business. My photography has been exhibited in Italy, CA, and AZ. I have dedicated my career to sharing my love for photography with others. I believe in life-long learning and enjoy working with all levels of photography students.

Best Teacher Ever!

Kelly is an AMAZING tutor! I've been learning photography, lightroom and photoshop from her the last few months, and continue to do so, I've learnt so much! She is an expert in her field and is generous sharing all her knowledge and tips ! She genuinely cares about my learning and always comes prepared. She is honestly worth a lot more than her hourly rate, I highly recommend Kelly!

Excellent Photography Instructor

Kelly was very well prepared to teach me the basics on using my Nikon D5500. She is a high school teacher so she knows quite well how to teach with patience and expertise. I highly recommend to use her to learn photography from basics to advance.

Extremely helpful!

Kelly was extremely helpful in learning Photoshop basics! She helped me go from almost no Photoshop knowledge to being able to do basics, like opening files and using layers etc.

Excellent tutor!!

Kelly was very helpful and was easy to understand in the way she explained about how to use the settings on my camera. What I found to be so helpful was she would explain what she was showing me then have me do it for myself. Her hands on approach was very helpful to my understanding of what she was teaching me.She came well prepared, and had material for me to take home that reviewed what I had learned. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to understand their SLR digital cameras.

Easily recommended!!!

Kelley was a perfect fit for two novice photographers once puzzled by the many options known/unknown. Walking away from that session left both students with a confidence for hands-on! Obvious was the fact that Kelley was well prepared and anticipated many of our questions. Her demeanor made for a smooth lesson and her patience for how we wanted to cover material made her a Pro! And easy it would be to recommend her to students seeking the same! Thanks Kelley and enjoy what's left of the weekend!
