Sharon is a globe-trotting visual story teller and photography educator. She is a native Australian who has lived in London however, for the last 20 years she has called Los Angeles her home. Her teaching experience includes three years with a well known college while being a faculty member for another local award-winning college.
Sharon has encouraged high school students to love photography for four years at a summer technology and creative camp located at various universities around California. Her love of photography and passionate nature is felt by everyone she comes into contact with. Her knowledge of cameras and her love of image making is infectious.
Hands-on use of a camera, any camera. Lighting whether it by via a strobe or by daylight. Composition, depth of field and perspective: creating a beautiful image. Creating a distinct and personal style to build a photographic portfolio. Story telling narratives: a series of photos that tell a story while exploring one subject visually.
Although I may sound odd - my accent, remember that you have an accent to me. Everything in life is about our perceived view of it, our perspective. Photography is the same: learn about it, learn how to use the camera and then forget everything and be creative to find your own style. Your own style is just that: your own.

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.
I've taught photography for the last four years at the New York Film Academy (NYFA) to college students, Art Center College of Design and for the Digital Media Academy (DMA) for four summers working with teens who come to the classes from around the world. I love photography, always have. I've only worked as a photographer for my adult life.
I started off in Australia working for a newspaper and continued in London as I jumped into assisting a professional photographer while running his studio. Relocating to Los Angeles put me closer to Australia and gave me the opportunity to assist many photographers whose work I saw in college in Melbourne. Shooting my own assignments all along, I have worked for Habitat for Humanity, NBC, NY Times, Los Angeles Magazine and InStyle magazine to name a few.
I'm in between jobs at the moment and I'm taking a break from formal teaching commitments while I redesign my website for a long overdue update. Tutoring will give me the freedom to continue to earn money while staying connected to people who want to learn photography from an experienced, patient and professional photographer.
