Over the years I’ve developed a technique for breaking photography down to simple concepts which anyone can understand, and then building real knowledge about how they all fit together.

My goals, as a teacher, are to:

  • Quickly get you taking control of the camera and taking better photos.
  • Help you understand why certain settings do certain things.
  • Make sure you’re not overwhelmed – I just teach what’s needed.
  • Give you a foundation of basic knowledge, which you can build on later at your own pace.
