About Donna

I fell in love with photography at the age of 16 and have devoted myself to the craft ever since. I have over twenty-five years experience in the field of commercial photography, and eight years as a fine art photographer with numerous exhibitions.

I love tutoring others in how to use their cameras properly, mastering lighting, and in processing those captured images in Adobe Photoshop. I can also help you with printing, book publishing, and exhibition preparations. Custom tutoring plans available after we do an assessment of your skill level and defining your main interests and challenges.

I look forward to helping you learn to become a better photographer!

Knowledgeable and fun, engaged tutor. — We reviewed basics of photography. Aperture, shutter, ISO, White balance. We also reviewed the specific functionality and use of my new camera. Donna is a professional studio photographer using Nikon equipment so this is her wheelhouse. Since she is a knowledgeable professional, she was able to walk me through the settings and buttons and functionality of my new Canon EOS 5 D. I enjoyed my lesson ...
