Photography is not as simple as some make it be. Of course, any decent camera can be pointed in any direction and shutter clicked to produce technically proficient images. Some may even be quite good.
For someone who considers photography a personal expression in one of the visual arts random appearance of “nice shots” should not be sufficient. The element that distinguishes “good” photographers from “mediocre” ones is the consistency with which good photographers produce good work. It is not because they know all the “quick and dirty” tricks, or “hot tips,” but because they have learned to look at the world with their own eyes, developed a systematic workflow, and learned their tools very well. There is no easy way to produce a coherent body of work, in fact, it requires determination and hard work; just like learning anything. Private tutorials may help improve your photographic vision.
Private Tutorials and Mentoring
To this end, I have started offering private tutorials to anyone who needs a bit of guidance and direction. These sessions are tailored to each individual’s needs and interests and scheduled at mutually suitable times. The topics may be photography, photographic vision, digital workflow, Lightroom, Photoshop, presentation of your work, etc. The cost of these sessions is $75 per hour. Contact me to discuss your needs and interests and we will develop a program suitable to your needs. We can meet at your place or mine depending on the subject matter and how far you live from me. There is no preset program since one size does not fit all. If the meetings will involve digital workflow, I would like to meet at least once at your place to assess your work environment and make suggestions for change if necessary.
I will update this page periodically and may eventually suggest outlines that cover specific areas.
