1-on-1 Photo Instruction

Zoom or In-Home Lessons

I am available for private, one-on-one lessons for all topics related to photography. Lessons can be customized to cover exactly what you want to learn, and may be held online via Zoom, or in-person.

Topics may include, but aren't limited to:

  • Basic Photography
  • Use of On-Camera filters
  • Long Exposure
  • Night Sky Photography
  • Basic Photo Editing
  • Advanced Photo Editing in Photoshop

Contact me to discuss a personalized learning plan and schedule a session.

1-on-1 Lessons In The Field

If you prefer a more hands-on lesson in the field, shooting side-by-side with me so you can ask questions and receive guidance in the moment, a field lesson might be more what you're looking for. Together, we'll choose a location based on what you want to learn and what you'd like to photograph.
Topics include:

  • Photography 101
  • Night Sky Photography
  • Use of Filters
  • Long Exposures
