About Jen

Hi, my name is Jen. I hold an MFA, in Film and Electronic Media. My specialty is in Photography and Retouching. I have lectured in photography on the University level, and tutored businesses in the corporate world on media practices as well as video editing. I graduated with my MFA from American University in 2016. Before attending graduate school, I worked as a Photographer/ Multimedia Producer for an e-commerce fashion company. I have experience in photography, motion graphics, Final Cut Pro editing, Adobe Premiere editing, Adobe Photoshop editing, and video production.

I gained teaching experience as a Teaching Assistant for the Basic Photography class, as well as the Intermediate Fine Arts Photography and the Advanced Large Format Commercial Photography courses at American University. I ran demonstrations, oversaw the lab, and often lectured a variety of topics.

I have experience tutoring a variety of students through Wyzant. My lessons have focused on Final Cut Pro Editing, Photography, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, and understanding media equipment. I have taught students that wish to learn how to edit family films, to those that wish to further their careers.

I am passionate about the work I do. I thrive on creating media that matters. I believe it is important to understand the theory behind each technique used. As a teacher I am approachable and understanding in nature. I am an extremely dedicated and patient person, who truly enjoys film, photography, and video.

Jen went over the basics of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO settings . We discussed indoor and outdoor settings and put into practice using my Dslr camera with different lenses. She used her notebook to show visuals as she was explaining information . I look forward to working with her again :)
