SUNY Empire State College, NY (Photography and History, BA)
I studied Photography and History at Empire State College (SUNY)Received a BA with high honors. I have extensive experience with medium format cameras, Rolleiflex and using a 35 mm Nikon camera shooting with black and white film. My focus is straight classical photography without the use of Photoshop and computer manipulation. I love to teach the joy and magic of using a manual camera. There are many lessons to learn including patience, composition, and waiting for that what Henri Cartier-Bresson called "The decisive moment."
I also have experience with digital SLR cameras and how to get beyond shooting on automatic. Learn how you can improve your technique and gain confidence.
I can show you the how to of cameras in a fun, hands on way, not sitting at a computer but getting out and making pictures. We can start at the very basics, from loading film (yes, they still make film) to how to select the right aperture and shutter speed.
I am now working on a long time project on the Fountains of Rome, and Sacred and Ancient Places of Southern Italy. I work freelance overseas and here in the States.
I would love to teach those who are interested in beautiful classical photography and I can help you with your digital cameras.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Photography from SUNY Empire State College, NYC. I have been a freelance photographer for over 7 years. I shoot mainly with a medium format Rolleiflex and a Nikon F2 with black and white film. I also use a Digital SLR Nikon for my work. I am familiar and work well in both. I have taught privately with young students and seniors from basic camera know how to making better photos. I can explain the workings of a camera, aperture, shutter speed etc.
I have appeared in numerous on-line publications, and in the art magazine MOMENTS. I will be showing my work at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists coalition "Celebrate" show from May 12-June 17. I am now working on a book of "Fountains of Rome".
I do not using digital manipulation programs such as Photoshop or Light Work. I prefer traditional darkroom techniques. However, I am knowledgeable with digital applications.
I believe that photography should be fun and exciting. I have lots of patience and would like to help you learn about the wonderful world of photography.
