Learn Your Camera

Go from auto to manual mode in a matter of a couple hours! Get hands on instruction on how to make the most of that fancy camera you've got.

Let's ignite that creativity of yours

 

Here's what I know:

You've got big dreams. You're talented. You've got support and even some momentum. You want to make a plan so that your creative endeavor can be a real money making machine. But you're stuck. 

To do lists are piling up and overwhelming. You need a headshot, branding collateral, a mission statement ... some kind of direction and voice. But the weight of your dreams are so heavy you can't see the forest through the trees.

Photography for Passionate People

 

I am for dreamers and for the down to earth. But I am especially for the folks who have feet squarely in both camps. I do what I do in the hopes of inspiring you to chase your dreams and live them out loud. Capturing each step you take is a physical reminder of what you're doing, where you're going, and why you're doing it in the first place. Let's tell your story.

Are you operating your camera? Or is it operating you?

 

Let me teach you, one on one and in person, how to use your camera and how to use it exactly the way you want to. 

I've been there. New and fancy camera in hand. Beautiful window light. Awesome subject in front of me. *Click* ... and *ugh*... Not great. Commencing waves of disappointment to wash over me. 

I have been a student of photography for over ten years. And obviously make a living from it now! I am mostly self-taught and am able to shoot in manual mode using Nikon, Canon, Fuji, and more. My philosophy is this: if you know the basics, it doesn’t matter what camera you are using. Anyone can take great pictures, it just takes a little bit of knowledge and practice.

Go from taking lack luster images to ones that take your breath away and portray exactly what want.

Schedule A Camera Lesson 

You’ve got this fancy camera and you have tried to learn how to use it, but you just don’t know why your images aren’t getting better. And if you’re like me, you learn best in an active and interactive environment. Reading online, watching YouTube, or even attending in-person lectures have never helped you. You know you just need to work side by side with someone and ask them a bunch of questions to learn a new tool or skill. This is why Camera Lessons were born.
