I created the photography program at Coconino Community College in Flagstaff AZ where I taught for 17 years and managed the photo lab and finishing facility. i have a wide variety of teaching experience both in classrooms and workshops and tailor the experience to the group size and type. I am adept at both Mac and Wintel computer systems and many associated software programs.

Additionally, I was a commercial photographer for a variety of clients big and small and have a wide variety of photography interests in my fine art photography. Typical projects were head shots for web pages, photographing artwork for print and digital reproduction, and photographic illustration of client's concepts. For my Fine Art work I shoot Japanese Tea gardens and rugby among other things.

I am an outstanding photography tutor because I understand both the technology and the art of photography extremely well and understand what it takes for students to get the student on that path themselves. From simple things like camera protection to complex ones such as photographic ethics I can point students in the right direction to expand their abilities and perceptions.

Contact me with what you have questions about and I'll see if there is a match between what you want and I can provide. Regardless of the gear and expectations you have, together we can exceed them. Remember that pictures come from photographers, not cameras!

I taught college level photography for 17 years, both film and digital. My major was in photographic chemistry and I went to Rochester Institute of Technology for a Master's in Imaging Science. I have tutored individual professional photographers as well and managed photographic workshops. I attended the Maine Photographic Workshops for Photography Teachers. Also, I was the Associate Faculty Member of the year for 2005. I am an experience orientated based tutor who gives direct feedback of results to students both in class and in the field. I adapt my lessons to whatever technology the student brings to the table but also demonstrate with my own. Additionally, I have been a professional photographer for over 35 years so I have a great deal of experience in many types of photography. Landscape, sports, portraits, and events are all specialties of mine.
