About Will

My name is Will Allen-DuPraw and I am a recent graduate of Brown University where I created my own major in Visual Storytelling. My focus is on photography, which I have been practicing for over seven years now both in film and digital formats. However my interests and abilities span across many artistic media from video games to spoken word poetry.

I enjoy working with kids and was a camp counselor for two summers at an outdoor adventure camp in Maryland, where I grew up. I moved to the West Coast a few months ago and am currently the Photography Intern at Island Conservation, a nonprofit which prevents extinctions by removing invasive species from islands around the world. This is only part-time however, which allows me to have a flexible schedule for other avenues, such as tutoring! I would love to share my love of photography and visual storytelling with young people of all backgrounds.

I have been using Adobe Lightroom as my primary photo-editing software for the past five years and have grown to be quite proficient with the tools it offers. Lightroom offers a more focused and streamlined process than many other Adobe programs and serves as both a powerful tool for photographers as well as a solid starting point from which students may advance to Photoshop and other programs more keenly.

I was first taught photo-editing with Adobe Photoshop and from there branched out and explored its more alternative applications. In college I took several courses which taught and made use of photoshop not just as a tool for photo-editing but as platform for the creation of a wide range of art such as animated gifs, digital paintings, and multimedia projects. With over seven years of experience with Photoshop I consider myself to be a capable teacher in its ways.

If you are interested in photography, digital art, storytelling, video games, or anything of the sort I encourage you to reach out to me and see if we might have overlapping interests. There is nothing more rewarding to me than sharing an activity I love with a curious mind, so please don't hesitate to contact me.

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 Lightroom

I have been using Lightroom as my primary photo-editing software for the past five years or so. I currently use it almost everyday in both personal and commercial (that is, small scale and large scale) applications. In particular I use it at my photography internship with Island Conservation to import and process thousands of photos at a time. All digital work in my portfolio (willallendupraw.com) was edited using Lightroom.

Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop is the program with which I was originally taught to edit photos over seven years ago. At the time I was using it to scan, edit, and digitally publish film negatives, but have since branched out to use it for not only photo-editing but for content creation across a wide range of media including digital painting, animated gifs, and more. The film photos in my portfolio (willallendupraw.com) were all edited using Photoshop. In college I took several classes which used Photoshop as the primary creative tool.

Photography

I have been practicing photography for over seven years, working with both film and digital formats. I graduated from Brown University last spring with a self-made major in Visual Storytelling, which combined Visual Arts, Literary Arts, and Computer Science into a cohesive track examining the past, present, and future of storytelling particularly through digital media. I am also currently the Photography Intern at the Santa Cruz based nonprofit, Island Conservation where I am in charge of importing, organizing, editing, and publishing the photo catalog of the organization.
