About Phyllis

As a fine art and gallery photographer for over thirty years, I can help photographers create great portfolios, give guidance on submissions to galleries, to Fotofest and other portfolio reviewers. I also had my own studio and have taught classes in the business of photography, travel photography, composition and creativity in photography. I like to think outside the box, explore ways to make your images stand out from others. I can help you find your own unique photographic style. I also can help beginners or those with experience but a new camera to learn how to use their cameras, set them up properly and how to compose great images. I specialize in creative visualization.

I have many years of experience in most aspects of photography and I love to teach and share information. I have traveled extensively, made lots of mistakes and learned from them, and can hopefully prevent my students from making the same mistakes. Although I do not wish to teach Photoshop, I am proficient in it and use it in my personal work daily. I worked many years in the darkroom and now use those skills in Photoshop for fine art, documentary and commercial/portraiture work. I have flexible hours and will try very hard to work within my students time frame.

Photography

I have over 30 years experience as a professional and fine art photographer. I attended Everett Community College for photography and video production. I was a resident artist at Benham Gallery in downtown Seattle for over 20 years until the owner retired. I have shown in many galleries in the US and abroad. I have been in Getty Images and understand stock photography. I taught many classes at Discover U in Seattle until it closed. I have guest lectured at Everett Community College and other venues. I had my own studio and still work on a freelance basis in commercial and portraiture while continuing my fine art. I am passionate about all aspects of photography and love to share my experiences and expertise through teaching.
