I’m pleased to offer one-on-one mentoring sessions, photography workshops and individual editing sessions, for beginner to advanced level photographers.
My background in photography is extensive and diverse. In addition to being a fine art and documentary photographer, I’ve worked as a magazine picture editor, on staff at both People and Time Magazine. I’m also an award-winning book designer and have created numerous photobooks for myself and for clients for 10+ years.
HOW IT WORKS
My one-on-one mentoring is geared to suit your needs, whether you're just starting to think more seriously about your images or you are a practiced photographer. We’ll work together to meet your goals as a photographer. Our meetings can be in person or online, through video conferencing. I’m ready to work with you - - no matter where you’re based. Sign up for a series or single classes; whatever best fits your schedule. These 1 to 2-hour sessions can be just for you or semi-private, so you can learn with a friend or colleague.
BEGINNER LEVEL, CAMERA BASICS:
Together we will break down how to utilize your camera to its fullest and make the most of your potential as a photographer. Let’s turn the dial and get you
out of AUTO mode. We’ll cover your camera’s menu settings, exposure (aperture, shutter and ISO), shooting modes, lenses, metering, flash techniques and composition. Assignments will be given and we will review your new photographs in subsequent sessions. All of this will help you to become more comfortable using your camera in manual mode - - one frame at a time.
INTERMEDIATE TO ADVANCED PHOTOGRAPHERS:
Let’s map out your next project to better maximize your time spent photographing.
Editing and sequencing is an art form. I will help you to edit and sequence your projects and will explain how, and why, I made my selections and pairings.
I can offer guidance on how to self-publish your photobook, from purposeful editing to thoughtful layout and design.
Make the most of your photographs by learning how to post-process your images in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
Develop your vision and point of view. I can help you to refine your technique and hone in on your own personal way of picturing the world.
I can advise on seeking exhibition opportunities, printing and framing your photographs, preparing for a portfolio review, creating a well-organized and dynamic
website and marketing your photography on social media.
CAMERA BASICS WORKSHOP
Similar to my beginner level mentoring but
taught in a group setting with a maximum of 8 participants. Topics will include: menu settings, exposure (aperture, shutter and ISO), shooting modes, lenses, metering, flash techniques and composition. Participants are expected to do assignments weekly and have new images to share in subsequent sessions. The only way to really learn how to use your camera is to use it - - and to use it often.
