Throughout the year I offer Private Mentoring Sessons to help aspiring photogs learn more about their gear, work toward artistic and photographic goals, and clear up any questions they have along the way. During the summer I also teach at a few local art schools including classes for both youth and adults.
My first class this summer is at Peninsula School of Art in Fish Creek, WI. Â For those of you unfamiliar with PSA, it is a gorgeous studio and gallery, and an amazing place to teach. I am starting off the year with a class on the Basics of Your DSLR Camera which is running from June 23rd-25th. This class is all about getting your beautiful digital single-lens-reflex camera off of auto mode and learning to be in complete control. We will learn the fundamentals of how to capture light and choose the correct shutter speed, aperture, white balance and ISOÂ settings. Whether you are looking to get serious with photography or planning for better images of travel or family, this comprehensive class will get rid of the confusion and send you home with your camera settings as second nature. You will have the skill and confidence to create stunning images without the guesswork!
The great thing about this class being early in the summer, is that it offers the opportunity to take a follow up class that will take it one step further in July: Adapting to Outdoor Lighting in Portraiture.
There are many other classes to check out, including one I am very excited for on the historical, ethical and theoretical implications of photographs. You can check them all out here: https://www.peninsulaschoolofart.org/photography—digital-arts-workshops.html
Now is the time to take risks and build toward what you are dreaming of. See you this summer!
