I love everything about photography. I have been taking pictures for 35 years and teaching photography for about 30 years. One thing I love about teaching is watching my students' unique vision and creativity unfold as they master the how-to's of the camera. I enjoy teaching the basic mechanics of photography, as well as the more subtle technical manipulations that open up infinite expressive possibilities. But even more, I love challenging my students to see the camera is a tool for creating meaningful images.
I also love studying the masters of photography, and strive to inspire my students to use the lessons that can be learned from those who came before us, both in photography and in art in general.
Finally, I'd like to say that my students and I have a lot of fun together, following and developing our passion for this wonderful media.

I have been teaching photography for over 30 years. There are two kinds of camera: film and digital. And within digital there are many variations.

Students need to be shown manual vs. automatic focus, how to use their light meters and how to set the correct icon for white balance. They need to learn about the histogram and custom white balance.
In addition to these technical matters, photographers must always be thinking about composition, light and color. Formal elements, mood, subject matter, background etc are essential for taking pictures that communicate.
