I offer personal one on one photography instruction in Kitimat, B.C. I will tailor the instruction material to fit your needs and answer your questions regardless of whether you're a beginner or more advanced. The usual session time is between 2 and 4 hours. If you prefer small groups, I'll do that too.

Photography can be a tough thing to teach. And this I know for sure - I cannot teach you to develop your own way of seeing. I cannot teach you to be a good photographer. Your life does that if you make that choice to really want to learn. But I just may be able to teach you a tiny bit about important things to do with photography. I can guide you so that you identify what an opportunity for a picture looks like. I do ask some tough questions, and I will make you think.

There are questions. Then there are important questions that need answered.

Sure I can teach you about your camera, shutter speeds, ISO and all that stuff...but we may end up talking about things like gesture, frame, render, presence, and how to look at a picture as well.

I'm not that interested in someone's technical ability to make long exposures or to photograph the night sky, but I am interested in how you notice things and how you see. That's what real photography is all about.

So if this sounds like something you'd be interested in, contact me via email and we can arrange a day and time for your instruction. My goal is to shave years off your learning curve, and to get you thinking about the really important stuff.
