About Paul

I am freelance photographer with a passion for teaching the trade to others. I currently work full time as a business professional, but I pursue photography engagements as a side-business and I have a true passion for photography. I enjoy working with others to explore different subject areas and igniting a passion for the art of photography.

I am an experienced instructor and have instructed business classes at the undergraduate level. Additionally, I am an instructor in the area of Fire Science, and am certified by the Virginia Department of Fire Programs as an instructor; a position I have held for nearly 20 years. I hope to combine my passion for photography with my experience in teaching to deliver compelling and informative instruction for those who desire to learn the art of photography.

My instructional method includes a combination of light lecture, and hands-on examples. And I find students learning photography do best when given the opportunity to work in real-life situations that will underscore lesson objectives and build confidence in basic skills.

Whether you're interested in better photographic composition, adjusting images in post-processing, or shooting in fully manual mode, I can help you achieve your goals quickly with individualized instruction.
