For individual instruction I begin with a discussion of where the student feels they are at with their photographic skills, perform an analysis of some of their work, discuss their goals for their photography to determine what genres or styles they are most interested in, and then develop an individualized lesson plan for each student. For group classes I set clear expectations for the ability level necessary for the particular class to have a base line of understanding and ability. This ensures nobody in the class feels they can't keep up with the material or that they are too advanced to get anything out of the class. I teach classes at multiple levels of ability and interest, allowing for classmates to feel they belong to their group and can help and challenge each other to grow their ability.
I'm a photographer with thirty years experience in photography, twenty of which as a professional portrait, event, and stock photographer. I also have a bachelors degree in digital photography. I've taught dozens of students photography technical skills, lighting, composition, history, critique, branding, and digital post-production.
My rates don’t change based on ability or experience of the student. There is no charge for travel up to fifteen miles from downtown San Diego. I will consider traveling further for a possible travel fee. Most classes will be taught on location. Cancellation Policy: No fee if a class is rescheduled at least 24 hours in advance. If the rescheduled class is cancelled or missed it may be subject to a fee equivalent to one class cost at the discretion of the instructor.
