Learn Photography With Me
I’m offering online classes covering all aspects of photography, including cameras, software, lighting, and composition. I teach how to use Photoshop, Lightroom, and various apps at beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. I’ve taught photography one-on-one, as well as to small groups and large groups for non-profits and corporations. Being well-grounded in the basics of photography will support your work, whether it’s to create fine art or striking images for social media. Whatever goals you may have for photography, I can help you reach them.
I love teaching photography. Teaching gives me the excuse to dive ever deeper into this endless topic. I’ve been teaching since the early ‘90s, and there are always new things to learn and new dimensions of photography to explore. I love sharing this passion with my students. I love the challenge of looking at the big picture and then breaking it down to the most basic elements of a photograph. What are the pieces of a photograph and how do you put them together to create a coherent and wonderful visual statement? Putting my passion into words and guiding my students through the big picture to the basics has been very rewarding for me. I learn more and more with every class I teach.
