One on one instruction is for anyone interested in learning basic, intermediate, or advanced Digital Photography skills. 

I can teach you all aspects of technical camera and digital computer skills necessary to operate like a professional for any commercial situation.

 

 

 

Hands on Camera Skills

If you don't feel that I have what it takes to excite, inspire, and properly teach you - we can happily part ways after our first (free) hour together. But if you do enjoy our time and walk away with many new skills I would encourage you to plan a semi regular meeting time once every week or month. I am also available to travel world wide and facilitate travel photography learning experiences in interesting and unique photography locations.

 

I have additional digital cameras and lenses available for student instructional usage.
