Hello! My name is Danielle. I found out photography was my passion when I was 14 when my mom gave me her film SLR! I went crazy making photographs and found it to be a great outlet for my creativity. I began taking classes in High School in digital and film platforms forming a strong base of knowledge with photography. The technical aspects came a lot slower to me than the creative. I entered art shows and newspapers just to get my name out there. Once it came time to search for a college, I decided to stick to photography as my major but go to a liberal arts school in case I decided to change my mind. And change my mind I did! I decided I needed to nurture my love of photography and transferred to the Savannah College of Art and Design. At SCAD I was able to learn everything I needed to create the work I always dreamed of.
I took a gap year after undergrad to focus on my applications to grad school. I attended Memphis College of Art where I obtained a Masters of Fine Arts in Studio Art with a concentration in photography. While at MCA, I worked in the schools print labs, teaching students how to properly use the equipment to achieve beautiful prints. I also had the opportunity to assist in a Community Education class teaching all ages the basics of photography. I moved to Charleston with the hopes of finding a job that suits what I'm looking for!
Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, Image print

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
In undergrad we had to learn the basics of Adobe Photoshop to edit photographs. In grad school I focused on graphic design courses to elevate my photography. In doing so I learned page layouts and design, typography, branding and web design. I was able to land an internship at Southern Bride Magazine where I created ads for their website.
I have six years of learning experience with Undergrad and Graduate course work. I've been published in news papers and magazines. I have worked as a newborn photographer, photographer on a major magazine shoot, assisted teaching of a community education course and photographed a three month tour.
