Photography

I received my BA in Photo-Illustration from Brooks Institute with a heavy concentration on studio portraiture. I am very good at complex lighting situations with studio strobes or hot lights. I taught Portrait/Commercial Photography at Clover Park Technical College and a few of my students continue to work as professional students today.

As a video producer, I have worked in all phases of video production: lighting, audio, editing (linear and nonlinear), graphics and animation, writing, and directing.

Information on my camera

Philip helped me to understand the difference between the different info on my camera. I need to take pictures of the Milky Way up on Haleakala on Maui. I’m really excited, but will need to practice before I go. Who knows when I’ll be back.

Great information in a short period of time

I am about to take a trip around the world and as a anniversary gift, my wife bought me a Sony a7RII camera. It is beautiful, but I needed some quick instruction not only on how to use the camera, but also how to take great photos. Philip met me at a local Starbucks and in 2 hours gave me an incredible amount of pertinent information and we went over some specific shots that we knew I would be taking while on my trip. His insight on how to teach someone the basics and several more advanced topics in such a short amount of time was exactly what I needed. I highly recommend Philip not only for his breadth of knowledge, but for his understand of the situation I was in and filtering his years of skill into a very short amount of time.

Movie Maker

I very much enjoyed this course. I feel that I gained many useful tools and approaches for use in my studio room. We worked on converting music files, importing media into Movie Maker, and added media to music. I will add transitions and effects during the week. We will work on titles, captions and burning the project to DVD at the next session. I reviewed how to convert music format to MP3, how to import media into a project, adding music, photos, effects and transitions. I will work on improvements to the video project during the week. I will work on a review next week, then add titles and captions, and finally export the project to a DVD. Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge with us.
