Semi-Pro Photographer Offers Lessons on making excellent photographs; available on your schedule

Methodology

My approach to instructing is to be organized ahead of time and to go through material in a step-by-step manner. I always push my students to do their best. I am not overbearing though. I like to take a laid back approach.

Background

I am a University graduate with a Degree in Mechanical Engineering and over five years experience as an Aerospace Engineer. Also, I am a pilot with over twenty years experience teaching people how to fly. I have done Real Estate Investing as well.
