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.

Film

I have an MFA in Film and Television from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, where I was awarded a graduate teaching assistantship. I have taught cinematography at the Kochi Univeristy of Technology in Japan, and The Workshops at Rockport, Maine. I have several feature film credits and awards, including two Independent Spirit Award nominations, and Best Feature at the LA Film Festival.

Photography

I have been taking pictures since I was a boy, having grown up in a family of photographers. I managed a camera store for five years after college. I have worked professionally as a photographer, shooting products and restaurants for websites, and was asked to make a series of training videos for modern DSLR cameras. I am adept in digital darkroom techniques using Apple's Aperture software.

Video Production

I have worked in video production since finishing graduate school for fifteen years. My work has been seen on major broadcast networks and I work with a-list hollywood talent on a regular basis. I am familiar with a wide range of professional and prosumer video cameras. I regularly use Apple's Final Cut Pro software for editing.
