Digital photography classes, private tutoring, portfolio review, developing your photo business' marketing strategies: that's my job.
If you want to learn how to use your camera and get better photos, I can help you reach your goals. If you want to make money from photography, I can help you design a business plan.
I am an Adjunct Photography Instructor at Lansing Community College in Lansing, Michigan and have been teaching college-level photography courses for 10 years. I teach photo classes on: nature, sports, portrait, still life/tabletop and urban lifestyles. I also teach basic digital photography and the business of photography.
Private photography lessons:
I also offer private lessons at $60/hour. If you want to learn how to use your digital camera, I'll help you understand what those buttons and dials are for in a "one-to-one" situation. I will examine your internet photography portfolio and provide feedback on your Flickr, Photobucket or other online accounts. I will examine your lighting and composition and tell you what is good and what can be improved. I will suggest ways you can grow as a photographer. For more information on lessons and the topics we can cover, see my page: "Photography Lessons."
If you are starting up your own photography business and want professional advice on creating a website, pricing your products and getting new customers, contact me. I will help you define your "niche", that specific area of photography that reflects your greatest strengths and enduring interests. We will select a logo or business photo that will appeal to potential customers. And, we will coin a slogan that accurately represents your company. I will be your advisor by "texting" with you over the internet. If you want faster feedback, I can consult with you by long-distance phone conversation or by a combination of internet and phone call simultaneously. For example, I can be reviewing your website or photos on the internet and making suggestions over the phone at the same time. Internet/phone consultations save us both time, travel and money. And they give you immediate results. My consulting fee is $60/hour.
I have 30 years experience as a professional photographer. I can help you discover your niche, establish yourself in today's photography market place and make money.
