What makes me different:
I'm a professional photographer and a professional educator, I posses both the knowledge of the field by practicing it everyday but also teach it at a near by university. I'm available via email & text with my current students. I give assignments and look at them before our session, to help you practice and see your progress, which you'll see after our first lesson. I also have ready to share equipment with you if you'd like to see what a different lens would look like or how strobes are set up.
My tips for you:
I recommend 1.5 hour sessions (15% off) they are the perfect amount of time to fully understand the lesson and have time for practice and questions, but they are not too much time to overwhelm the brain. It usually takes a total beginner 4 - 1.5 hour lessons to start seeing the bigger picture, pun intended. Always make sure your camera is fully charged and you've got lots of space on your memory card to play and practice. Don't stress out, have fun, I'm here for you!

Lindsey possesses the right combination of patience, communication skills, and industry knowledge, coupled with an easygoing demeanor, which make her an excellent tutor.
I look forward to working with her again in the future.
I knew the LR basic tools from a LR intro class but knowing what the tools are and then how to use them are two different things. Add highlights or white? Lighten the shadow or take back the black? There's a difference and I needed to know when to use what and how to easily compare my images in each step of the processing. Lindsey got me where I needed to go.
Lindsey is an excellent teacher who knows how to decompose the whole into manageable elements. The opaque camera becomes transparent, as if seen though x-rays. After our first session, I felt better armed to understand what was going on in that box and how to use it. Having the student practice each newly learned component, over and over again will facilitate rehearsing it at home. I also appreciate how Lindsey speaks slowly, articulates clearly, and helps the student linguistically walking her through the arcane imagery of photo technique. Her charts were very helpful, as well as her drawings on the white board. After taking pictures of a subject, she showed me the differences depending on how much light we allowed into the camera. Eye-opening! She was also very forward about showing me her portfolio and how she gets to take the best pictures of people through getting to know them and their unique personalities.
I enjoyed our session while learning: Masking, transforming, removing red eye, using paintbrush and making black and white adjustments. All basic stuff but very useful.
Lindsey tutored me for a number of weeks. She is one of the most talented, knowledgeable people I've ever met. She will not only guide you through the material but also provide tips that will help you get through faster and smarter. I highly recommend Lindsey M.
I absolutely love Lindsey's teaching style, her ability to deliver information in a way that I can comprehend it. I've taken many classes in the past that were over technical teaching me things I probably wasn't going to use to begin with. Lindsey's personal experience with photography, and her extensive educational experience makes learning from her a true joy, and very comfortable.
Very very grateful I was able to find her.
Lindsey quickly returns emails. Very flexible with schedules. Very patient with questions and encouraging. She is honest with time and arrives early or prompt to meetings. She is a great teacher and tutor. I recommend her to anyone who would like to know more about photography but doesn't have time for schedule classes or needs flexible scheduling due to work/life. She is willing to go on excursions to camera stores to buy equipment or practice shooting pictures and even come to the house to set up editing program. Cannot ask for a better person that is willing to do everything possible to see you succeed in your photography journey.
Wonderful - very personable, knowledgeable and great to work with. Much more than I excepted. Would highly recommend her.
Lindsey spent time with me today reviewing focus points, manual focus and metering. She is so easy to understand and really has an amazing knowledge of photography and post editing. I'd highly recommend.
Lindsey is an excellent photography teacher. She is definitely knowledgeable in the field of photography and is extremely focused in her teaching. She makes efficient use of the tutoring time she has with you and she is very patient with her students. I like people who stay on task and Lindsey does. She also had a very studied eye when she reviews photographs and pulls out the points that need to be focus on. You will be very pleased working with Lindsey.
I have been a student of Lindsey's for the past year, through continuing ed digital photography classes at UTA she has instructed and through Wyzant tutoring. I highly recommend Lindsey for assistance with general photography topics, software and hardware issues and specific photography equipment instruction and techniques. She is very patient and takes the time to explain things to ensure you understand and gives advice and hints and suggestions and critiques constructively. She really knows her stuff! She is very accommodating and flexible. She is easy to get in touch with and is very professional and timely in replying to inquiries. She is a pro who isn't stingy with her expertise, knowledge or time, and I appreciate that very much in an instructor/tutor. Call her! You won't regret it.
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.
LR is like no other software out there, don't feel silly if you don't understand it in full, that's where I come in! Professionals use LR, it's an important part of our workflow. We stay organized with our thousands of images in Library, but we play and edit in Develop. There are many steps before importing and after exporting that you need to consider before using LR, I'll go through them all.
Photoshop is a wonderful program that can take your images to higher levels of altering and composting or Photoshop can be a very useful tool for straight photographers, those just looking for color, exposure, or other slight changes in their images. Reducing red in skin tone, whitening teeth, or any beautification technique can be mastered using Photoshop. If you're a more abstract artists looking for ways to combine cool effects with vector art and text, this program is also for you. I happen to enjoy all forms of that arts with Photoshop. Sometimes I fix wedding images, sprucing up the bride a bit, sometimes I'm taking out objects that wont sell a house well, or fixing the lighting situation to help out those family photos. But I also love to work with the effects, making things look brighter, color penciled in, written on, distressed, old timey, etc. We can composite several photos together, fix a closed eye or simply make the grass greener. Whatever your need, Photoshop is capable and I can make sure that you are too. Not only can you learn how to do all these things, but I'll teach you how to non-destructively and show you many ways to go about it - either with the menu bar or through short cuts. We can learn as much as you want, at the pace you are comfortable with.
Consider me your mini photo school/studio, your private guide to everything photography related; from cameras to software, new exhibits and culture, and even printing or putting together a portfolio. All levels, and all cameras, welcome!
I've been photographing for over ten years, and running my own photography business for over 5. I learned photography in 2002 in a black and white lab, picking up color photography in 2004. I went digital in 2008 when the cameras became so good it was hard to refuse!
My specialty is marketing/commercial photography: products, head shots, events, and store front photography for small businesses. I photograph lifestyle work for families as well, but always innovative sessions, never cookie cutter work.
