Class Experience

By the end of the week, you'll know how to confidently use your camera in manual mode as well as the various automatic and partially automatic modes.

Technically, that means you'll understand ISO, shutter speed, aperture, how to change each of them and why you would want to. You'll understand how to use manual focus and auto focus and will have an understanding of many of the buttons and dials you see on the camera body.
I've been a professional photographer since 2001 and have a wide range of photography experience, including many years photographing babies and children. I've been teaching photography for over ten years to professional photographers, enthusiasts and teens through group workshops, private lessons and online classes. 

I'm recognized as a Master Photographer by the Professional Photographers of America and was also awarded the organization's Photographic Craftsman degree in recognition of my work teaching other professional photographers. 
Throughout the week I'll give you assignments that'll reinforce and enhance the learning experience. I strongly believe that the best way to retain what you've learned and become an awesome photographer is to practice, practice, practice!

About Me

While most of my classes are photography-related, I also offer occasional classes on other topics that I think will benefit the community of students here on Outschool.
