Individual Private Photography Instruction


Some people don’t learn well in a classroom environment and for those of you out there, I offer 1-on-1 individualized photography instruction. The sessions are a non-stop exploration of what is important to YOU, first and foremost. Need the basics of light, shutter, aperture and ISO covered? Done. Want to move on to other, more advanced topics? Sure. Or maybe you’re new to it all and just want to understand what all the functions of your camera really DO?

We can either meet indoors at a comfortable location to go over theory and equipment familiarity or take a walk around town to get a real hands-on feel for your new skills.

I will draw on my 19 years of photography experience and former life as an corporate instructor (and current freelance work for various photography instructional websites) to make sure you are comfortable with how best to use your camera and skills. I will send a pre-instruction questionnaire to gather what you would like to know and what you already know, as well as the type of equipment you would like to be instructed on.

The instruction also includes a month of email critique follow-ups to help cement what was learned and continue the improvement process.

My travel and touring schedule allows me to offer my services in a select number of cities.  Below is my current availability per city:

  • Portland, OR – Various Time Available July 19-23, 2012

I am available to be scheduled any of those days except for Saturdays, when I will be holding the Improve Your Photography Skills Workshop. Contact me to plan a time or ask questions.

The cost of a private instruction session is $145 for a 2 hour session, $210 for a 3 hour session, $265 for a 4 hour session and $510 for a full day..  Would you like to bring a friend?  It’s only $50 for the second and third person per 2 hour increment.
