The School of Visual Arts (Photography)
I've been fascinated by photography since my parents bought a "family" camera when I was about 8 years old. I loved taking pictures and won a Pentax 35mm SLR when I was 12 and that focused my attention on photography for good.
Attending The School of Visual Arts, I majored in Photography and had the opportunity to study under Ralph Hattersly. Moving ahead a few years I became the Official Photographer of The Meadowlands Chamber of Commerce, specializing in architectural and real estate photography.
With the digital era upon us I taught digital imaging for Dainippon, DuPont Electronic Imaging, Scitex, and Imation Corp. I held a position of field photographer for Crosfield Electronics for a number of years. I was trained in digital imaging at the Crosfield Institute in Watford, Herts, England and went on to build color programs and ICC profiles for many of the major publications thoughout the USA.
I love to take pictures and have extensive knowledge of how to use photographic equipment. I can show you how to use a camera, as well as how to compose attractive photographs. If you would like a deeper understanding of color I am able to provide instruction on how to work with color in a professional format. Whether your interest is in using a DSLR, film use view camera or hand held instrument, I can show you how to use them quickly and explain useful details to make your pictures look great.

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.
Being fascinated by photography from my early teens, a photography major at The School of Visual Arts, a previous member of The Meadowlands Chamber of Commerce for commercial photography, and currently contracting for commercial real estate and architectural photography, I have experience with a variety of environments and know photography from film to digital.
I previously taught electronic imaging for Scitex, Inc., and can provide instruction from how to use your camera to how to create beautiful images you will be happy to call your own.
