All my private lessons are customized for your needs. Lessons typically consist of photography theory as well as hands-on application. The theory portion can be conducted at your home, or at my studio. The hands-on part is conducted in the field to show real world examples of the theory. Scheduling of the classes is flexible and one-on-one instruction allows for teaching at your pace with a custom program suited to you.
