About Richard

I have over 35 years of experience as a videographer for local TV news in Ohio and Philadelphia and also in corporate video departments. I have my own business for video production and enjoy helping others who want to learn more.
I am not a certified teacher so I have no formal training in that area but I do know my area of expertise and will work individually with each student to first understand what they already know, find out what they want to learn and work together to help them reach their goals.

Since video production requires a computer and some special software programs, the student should have access to such equipment to practice on. If it is photography, they should have their own camera and if it is theatre, they need to discuss what they would want to improve on or learn and any ideas on how they could get involved with local productions to be able to put what is learned in to practice. I will be working with students in a collaborative manner working with each student and along side each student to help them achieve their goal.

Great considering he doesn't really teach photography. — He brought up some very helpful things in a general way that I can now take on to work on under another instructor. He was very specific about answering my questions. He was very encouraging and took lots of time with me. A great instructor for young vidographers ...
