Let’s Build Confidence Behind your Camera! 

I am a published Brand Marketing Guy and Photographer in Southern Indiana (1 mile from Louisville Ky).  I was like yesterday when I first picked up acamera (a long time ago somewhere in  middle school), entranced by theclick of the shutter and the film development process of the darkroom. I never put my camera down. I have been blessed to have taken pictures of hundreds of people, event1to1 Creative Portrait Photography Classs and have traveled all over the united states, simply to capture a moment in time.

I love the art of portrait and creative photography; the ability to freeze moments in time and helping  people find their comfort zones and confidence. It’s my primary aim, whenever someone is in front of my camera; if I can first make them laugh and then relax, 90% of the job is done. My teaching philosophy is the same. I want to make people feel comfortable and confident – but this time on the other side of the camera. Camera’s can be  intimidating, the transition from shooting in auto to manual is often more scary. Learning in film, I never had a chance to embrace the “Auto” settings of my camera, but I did have to become reacquainted with my camera when I moved from my SLR to my DSLR; the darkroom to photoshop and then from hobby to professional.

My group and 1to1 photography training program focuses on building your confidence behind the camera, enhancing your skill with your camera (in manual mode), and taking control over the creative process and your camera. We will learn shutter speed, aperture, depth of field, composition, lighting, triangle exposure and much more. We will methodically develop the skills and confidence you desire to develop while  learning a comprehensive technical foundation in photography. In my lessons, we will explain and  discuss specific features of your camera, and then practice each skill and ensure that it’s fully understood before moving on to the next lesson. 

I’m flexible, fun and creative  in my approach to teaching photography; everyone’s goals, skills  and learning styles differ, each is taken into account in my sessions. You may prefer to learn how to take better pictures with your iPhone (no problem) or improve the appearance of your social media, website, vlog or live, I can help you here too…

No question is too silly and No creative challenge will go unanswered!

I would love to have a chat about what you want to get out of your training and the type of pictures you’d like to create.

Let us put together the best to achieve your creative goals.
