I’m a life-long learner and lover of photography. I love to help folks learn more about how to find and create better images. I’ve been at my art and craft for over forty years and have a lot of experience to offer. I look forward to answering your questions as we work together to improve your skills.
These sessions are truly personal. Once you order a block of time I’ll contact you to set up a date and time. We’ll also discuss your needs so we can customize your session to better direct the time we will spend. During our actual session we’ll work together, again, as I help you find solutions to your questions.
Please read the list of some ways I can help you before purchasing a block of time for your private session:
Areas we can work on
Sessions customized to meet your goals
Camera controls (particularly manual considerations) – Compositional considerations – Finding & using best natural light – Using PhotoEphemeris to plan night-time photo sessions – Setting up artificial light – Modifying artificial or existing light – Converting color digital files to B&W – Astro and Moon Photography – Macro photography – Organizing digital files with Lightroom – Optimizing digital files for web or print – Printing custom B&W prints w. Epson ABW (Advanced Black & White) utility – Matting the fine print – Framing options – Lighting & hanging your photographs – Reviews and critiques of your work.
Once you find some things you’d like me to help you with, purchase a block of time:
*When I receive your order I will contact you via email or phone to work out a schedule and a plan for our time. If we decide that what you want to work on is something I am not able to help you with, you will be issued a complete and immediate refund.
We’ll use Zoom so you’ll need to have it installed on your computer. A desktop or laptop is best, though many use iPads. Having a webcam built into your device is important. You can use a phone, but believe me a larger screen will help you see and understand any demonstrations I make for you much better. If you have any questions before purchasing a session, reach out to me either at 415.663.8670 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Sessions are not taxable, but the web store will add tax to any purchase made with a bank card billed to a California address. If this happens, and we don’t catch it, please notify us so we can refund the tax amount to you.

My current digital camera equipment:

My current passions are IR photography with my converted Sony A7 and long exposure astro-photography with the Sony A7S. Also I explore the small world via close-up macro photography. All pursuits are a joy when working with live-view mirrorless gear!
