Learn With Me
If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about your camera and photography, then you’ve come to the right place. I’ve been teaching photography since 2006 (that’s over 16 years in the classroom) and I have learned plenty in that time. I started out as a part-time high school photography teacher and at the same time quickly turned a tiny side hustle as a wedding and portrait photographer into a successful full-time business. Once I went full time with teaching I continued my photography business (if you’re following the timeline you realize that I have 2 full time jobs now) so my photo knowledge is both in the classroom and in real-life application.
EVER WANT YOUR PHOTOS TO JUST COME OUT THE WAY YOU WANT THEM TO?!?
i get that
I created this space to share all my knowledge with people just like you! It has allowed me a place to encourage novice photographers to find a way to explore their artistic vision and help newer photographers who want to start to make money with their photos by way of a new business.
I believe that the technical parts of photography + business are what hold most people back from really exploring how to share their vision with the world. I take all the [not so] scary parts of learning the camera and finding better workflows and break them down into very manageable pieces of information.
