TELL ME MORE

So many struggle to get in focus (not blurry) photos. Do you want to create that pretty blurry background that we all love, but lack the knowledge of how to make it happen? Many of my students are ready to shop for a new camera or lens and worry they'll invest in the wrong gear. If you can relate to those feelings at all, I can help you with my beginning and intermediate photography class.

Learn how to create a blurry background, take great sports photos, think through tricky photo situations, and consistently create images that make you proud.

Give me a few hours of your time, and I'll have you feeling more confident with your camera and empowered to tell your family's story through photos! Ready to believe in yourself? Grab a friend, book a seat, and let's do this! See you in class!
