Photography Instructor


I am a cinematographer (I work primarily with video) who went to UCLA film school. I am originally from New York City, but I’ve lived in LA since 2002. 

My photography and photoshop class is about learning the basics of a DSLR camera settings, lenses, techniques to make your photos look great, and how to edit your photos in Photoshop (computer program). 

Most of all, I hope I can help you to enjoy the process of expressing yourself through art and photography, and be free to experiment creatively using a camera and computer.
