Photography & Video Classes

Teaching students to make and understand photographs and films are not frivolous; what they learn through this media has real value in their lives. No matter their career paths, the practice of making pictures, and all that it entails, enriches and expands their lives. Photography and video requires attention to a wide range of technical and artistic elements, which must align if students are to produce strong images. Attention to detail is pivotal to my teaching. Thtought the classes, I asking detailed questions about each student, talking about photographs and photography, filmmaking and film with the new vocabulary that will soon become second nature to them. The craft and vision of visual art is married in my approach to teaching. I teach with a passion for the medium of photography & cinematography, the art form I’ve been practicing for decades. Anyone who walks into my classes can see I love working with people, encouraging them to see the world in a different way. I know my enthusiasm spurs my students on, just as their excitement and discoveries affirm my work with them.
