2020 Update: Due to Coronavirus, in-person mentoring sessions are suspended until further notice. Virtual mentoring sessions are still available upon request.

DSLR/mirrorless owners:
Do you have a camera that’s gathering dust? Are you stuck in auto, using pre-programmed settings to get your shots? Let me help you become a better photographer. I’d like to help you learn about aperture, shutter speed, and ISO–the building blocks of the exposure triangle. I’d like to teach you about the so-called “rules” of composition–and then how to break those rules. But, most importantly, I hope to ignite a passion for photography in the hearts of people I teach. If you own a DSLR or mirrorless camera, contact me. Sure, we can discuss rates; but first, let’s discuss you. Where are you as a photographer? What are you hoping to accomplish? What would you like to learn? Let’s open a dialogue.

I know what you’re thinking: I just adjusted the brightness. Well, that’s not true. This image has manual changes to its exposure, white balance, highlights, shadows, whites, blacks, yellow luminance, green luminance, red primary, green primary, and contrast (pro and tonal). 

Smartphone owners:
Let’s be honest, most people are photographers these days. Almost all of us have mirroless cameras right in our pockets–our smartphones. In my opinion, smartphones at their best are at a disadvantage to DSLR or mirrorless cameras. Their sensors are smaller, the lenses aren’t interchangeable, the zoom is digital rather than optical, and so-on. Using your default camera app isn’t doing you any favors. I’d like to show you an app I use to take photos, which gives me more control and better quality. I’d like to teach you about the “rules” of composition, and how to break them. If you aren’t interested in printing, and just want to put your stuff on Instagram, a smartphone isn’t a bad choice. Contact me and let’s discuss what you’re interested in accomplishing with your photography. Sure, we can talk rates. But first, let’s talk about your vision.
