Photography Atlanta

Are you new to the world of photography and want to get more out of your camera & digital darkroom? Perhaps you want to take better family & vacation photos while ensuring they look their best when posted online or printed at a lab. I've had years of collegiate classwork and over a decade of experience that you can draw upon to learn both the basics and those advanced concepts that are most important to achieve YOUR goals!



Douglasville Photography Class

In addition to private instruction (see below), I teach a Focus on Photography class at the Douglasville Cultural Arts Center. It's a six-week session and covers all the basics of using a film or digital SLR camera. You can find course listing, schedule and registration information on the Arts Council website.

While designed to suit your individual needs, you can share a workshop with a friend or two and split the cost among you if you prefer. Contact me for additional information or to schedule your personal lesson today!
