About Michael

I have many years experience in various field of photography and the arts. I've taught photography at Parsons and The New School. I've been a top level NYC photographer for all the major NYC art galleries and museums. My works have been publish in all major art magazines inducing Art in America, Art News, Arts and Antiques as well as Town and Country, NY Times, etc. I've taught at the Digital Art Academy in NYC and YAI with a special photographic arts program with the Holga plastic camera. I also teach HS level art at the Roslyn School District.

I strive to always introduce clear concrete understanding, while making the learning process fun and easy. With my tutoring I always work with the student to find what works best for them and what makes them unique. I then work to incorporate this into all the lessons and all the photos/art they create.

My knowledge and understanding of all techniques with art theory and the visualization process is thorough. Do you want to get better? Do you want to be a respected photographer/artist? You will need to understand not only the techniques, but the application of various visual cues you will need to make a successful image. I am able to make this easy to learn and understand. The main thing I introduce is the "awareness" factor. The techniques are presented in a simple and step by step instructions with mini lessons to make learning great fun while building these skills. I have a BFA in photography from Rochester Institute of Technology/ MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Photography and Ceramics. I have completed all required graduate classes for a MA in Art History at CCNY. I have only my Thesis to complete. My education and lifetime experience allows me to present my students the true complete package, not just idle lessons.

Looking for just simple skills and techniques or better understanding of great photographic art and the ability to take great images? Then I'm the one that can help you and show you the way. All my lessons are not just blind lessons, but lessons created to find out what is unique in you! This is what you will need to be communicated for a great image and defines who you are as an artist.
