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.

David Kaleo Woo was raised in the Los Angeles area of Southern California. Currently a volunteer counselor at an in-patient, Koreatown treatment center and mindfulness instructor, his purpose is to translate his past into a message of hope, drawing from his personal history mired in gang culture, addiction, and juvenile incarceration.


He is a graduate of the USC School of Cinematic Arts MFA Film program and is a recipient of the John Huston Scholarship for achievement in directing. His thesis film, Get Jumped In, was awarded an Honorable Achievement for the 2009 College Television Awards and won Outstanding Documentary at the 2009 USC First Look Festival. Woo’s previously written screenplay, S.G.V., was a finalist for the 2008 Sundance Screenwriters lab.
