About Alex

I have made my living as a professional photographer since 1979. That being said, I embrace contemporary styles, and the latest technology. I have had work published in every major fashion magazine, photographed thousands of weddings, and strive to create portraits that increase in value over time.

I have taught hundreds of hours of adult and young adult photo classes, mostly in Oklahoma, where I received the Governor's Arts Award for contributions to the Arts in Oklahoma. The classes focus on (reference intended) the technical aspects of HOW a camera works, using that knowledge to create the images you want to achieve. We then move on to "Idea & Image", practicing creative techniques, studying composition, color, and design. Lastly, we work on image manipulation, storage, printing, and photo handling softwares. The student will be given assignments for critique which have specific practices to develop. Most importantly, these sessions are FUN.

Sessions available Fri, Sat, Sun at your location. No charge for initial contact/consultation.

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.

Photography

I served as photography instructor for adult classes from 2005 through 2015 for the Western Technology Center, based in Weatherford, Oklahoma. My classes included Digital Photographic Basics, Advanced Digital Photography, and Creative Photographic Techniques. My classes were extremely popular on Weatherford, Sayre, Elk City, and Hobart campuses. I have made my living as a professional photographer since 1979, first to finance my college education, and later to support my family. I have owned photo studios in three states, and continue to serve as mentor to several professional photographers. I was a recipient of the Governor's Arts Award (for contributions to the arts, statewide) in recognition of my photographic work and teaching.
