are you looking for a beginning photography class?  because, let's be honest: your camera is set on automatic, isn't it?  you know.  the safe green rectangle.  it's ok.  i won't tell anyone.  but i have a secret: you're a better photographer than you think.  in fact, you're a better photographer than your camera thinks!

come, join me for a photography for beginners class, and i'll show you how to make your camera do what YOU want.  let me teach you to turn off the auto setting and explore the amazing world of photography!

and, while we're at it, i may even show you a trick or two for looking skinnier on camera?!  that alone is worth the cost of admission, right?!  so come on!  lose the fear, drop the insecurities, and let's do this!  you're a better photographer than you think and i can't wait to see you in class!

No more blurriness and terrible exposure {and look at that bokeh}! You are a great teacher.  Thanks for everything!

ready for an intensive 10 week photography class?

join my ten week workshop, featuring five intensive studio sessions (every other week) where we'll discuss camera basics, finding good light, working with subjects, and beginning editing.  everyone will set a personal goal and, with support from me, will work to achieve that goal.  classroom experiences are enriched with discussions and assignments on a private facebook page and there is a strong emphasis on community within this course.  many of my participants remain friends long after the workshop is over, a handful have assisted me on photoshoots, and some have gone on to start their own businesses.  if you want to grow your photography skills, this is the place to do it!
