People Photography

People photography can be fun and rewarding.  Learn how to get great results in all situations— working with all sizes and shapes of people, working in challenging lighting conditions,  and even if you are stuck in the middle of  that dreaded town of  Uglyville.  You can get great shots of strangers, family and friends.  You will see how easy it can be to get good photos and be happy to be considered the “Official Photographer”—who really knows what they are doing.   We will work with the different approaches for photographing groups of people, couples, individuals, children, and even pets.  These all work for any camera or smartphone. 

Travel Vacation Photography

Come home with exciting and memorable photos from your vacation travels.  We will cover easy techniques that will make the camera give you the best image it can.    You will not have to delete your shots because of disappointment.     These principles apply to all cameras and smartphones.  Your friends will really want to see your photos and not just wish you would serve dessert!!  No more worries of putting your friends to sleep with your photography.  We will cover more compositional considerations in depth, easy technical tweaks and principles for your devices and cameras.   These are pertinent for all levels of experience, devices and cameras.

Make the Most from your iPhone and Camera

We have great, simple “How to” s for utilizing the camera that you have—whether it is a smartphone, a compact point and shoot or a digital SLR.    The best camera to have is the one you have with you, and we will help you to maximize the potential of your device.  The computers in the cameras and phones are smart; but we will make you even smarter and give you control over your results.  Today Everyone is a Photographer, we will help you be one of the better ones!!!!!
