With more than twelve years of experience in portraits, weddings, special events, photojournalism and commercial photography, I am your best bet when it comes to choosing a passionate and experienced tutor to help you learn the "ins and outs" of the photography world. Photography isn't just my job, it's my first true love! I love it so much that I carry my camera with me every where I go just in case an incredible "Kodak Moment" presents itself.

I am a very energetic person; I love to have fun and crack jokes. I find when my students have fun, not only does this help keep them engaged in the session, they tend to retain the information better. I will also customize our tutoring sessions to meet your individual learning needs and experience level.

I have tutored both amateurs and professionals in the art and science of photography and basic image manipulation since 2007.

Learn professional tips and techniques about how to use your computer and various softwares to enhance and manipulate your images.

Computer Platforms: PC and Mac
Software: Adobe Photoshop CS (Creative Suite) series, Adobe Lightroom 3, 4 & 5, Capture One, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook), Express Digital Darkroom.
I know both Nikon and Canon camera systems very well.

Whether you need to learn how to use your camera, take better photos, shoot film, use studio lighting, learn a new and unfamiliar area of photography or enhance your images using Photoshop or another digital image manipulation software, I promise to deliver easy to understand lessons geared toward your individual learning needs. I breakdown photography into laymen's terms and use one-on-one, hands on techniques to teach you about photography. I look forward to working with you!
