Art Institute of Philadelphia (Photography)
I have been a professional photographer in NYC since 1993. The type of clients that I have worked with include fashion and commercial models, actors, Interior designers and architecture. I have also collaborated with hospital advertising and pharmaceutical clients.
I have extensive knowledge developing film and large, medium and 35 mm formats. The transition to digital photography was essential and seamless. Using Photoshop and Capture One along with other software has been part of my daily routine. I believe that my familiarity with these mediums would facilitate others learning these programs. Digital photography is the norm, However, an understanding of Point and shoot cameras is still something that needs to be taught. Understanding the use and the functions of a particular camera should include appropriate back - drops and the ability to expose and capture the correct light is something that I am competent in.
Knowledge and experience with Photoshop and other software programs along with extensive experience with camera and lighting are what I have to offer my students.
You will find that I am a patient teacher who will explain the lesson in basic easy to understand terms. Learning photography is not only through reading to understand but more importantly by doing . Hands on minds on is how students learn. Trusting the student to become familiar with materials and software happens with the teacher having the patience to explain how each component is connected .
