Photography Workshop Series #1, Davis, CA

Last week was the first photography class I held, and I couldn’t have been happier with the result!  We had a great turnout, great people, and a great time.  After the class I was thrilled to find out that people wanted to learn more, and that there were also people contacting me from facebook who missed the class and wanted to come to another...

Those of you who know me may know that I am just as passionate about teaching as I am about my art.  My favorite thing to do?  Teach art.  For years I have taught drama and dance classes and directed plays and theatre workshops and love it.  As I have been studying and practicing with photography I had in the back on my mind the idea that I would love to teach that, too.

Thank you for letting me do something I enjoy so much, and for sharing that joy with all of you!

After the first class I came home and immediately started planning the next one, and here is what I came up with.

These classes are geared for beginning photographers, or people who have been taking pictures, but haven’t taken formal training.  I have had my photography business for a little over a year and consider myself a lifelong learner.  In the classes I will share with you things I wish I had known when I first picked up my camera, and help you by sharing tips that will help with your everyday portraits.  The workshops are a mix of lecture and activity so that you can practice and learn together.  Since the same group will meet for 3 weeks, you will be able to contact me and ask questions between classes, and I will also send out resources and info through email that you may find helpful.  Here is the breakdown on topics:

8/14: Natural Lighting for Outdoor Portraits 8/21: Composition Elements and Exposure 8/28: Posing

If you want a fun activity to do this last month of summer, or if you want to move towards shooting in manual mode without fear, this could be your class.  Enroll early, because space is limited.  To sign up, email me at

Hope to see you there!
