Your personal Trainer for mastering digital photogprahy 

Perhaps you're looking to fully understand your DSLR or are stuck on something after hours of watching youtube tutorial videos. Maybe you're looking to improve your creative eye to take your work to the next level. Whatever your goal is I know with certainly that if you spend one hour with me, you'll learn more than after having spent many hours surfing the internet for tutorials. With my diverse experience in teaching photography I'll be able to immediately sense what you're needing, and with patience, find the best way to teach that.

I'm proud to say that there are many success stories from my former students in achieving their photography goals. 


Private Lessons are $40 per hour, and if you intend to book three lessons I’ll give you a $20 discount.

I also host group workshops which pop-up from time to time for $40 per person. Please subscribe to my news letter below for updates!


Lessons will be held at the Lamberton Conservatory in Highland Park until 4pm and at the Village Gate after 4pm. 

I’m also able to meet you anywhere around Monroe County; especially if there’s a specific subject matter you want to practice with.
