IT ALL STARTED IN JUNIOR HIGH
My love of photography started in Junior High with a photography class where I learned how to process film and print in the darkroom. After high school I started my career as a professional photographer.
TEACHING WORKSHOPS AND WRITING BOOKS
I learned a lot of things in the early years that I thought would help people with their photography. I taught photography workshops and wrote a couple of best selling books on photography to help make photography easy to understand.
CREATING WORKSHOPS ON EASYPHOTOCLASS.COM
I created my website EasyPhotoClass.com to make my photography workshops available online. I created workshops on the 3 main areas of Exposure, Camera Settings and How to See Creatively.
WORKSHOPS IN PERSON AND ON PHONE
I also offer workshops one on one in person and for small groups as well as over the phone. These are limited to just a few each month and you can apply by email using the contact form on this website. I also teach Adobe Photoshop and other software.
1. HOW TO SEE CREATIVELY WORKSHOP
My favorite workshop is my Creative Photography Made Easy workshop which helps people learn how to see creatively. Technically correct photos are still boring if they have bad creative choices. This workshop helps people learn how to have fun creating beautiful photographs using different combinations of creative choices.
2. EXPOSURE WORKSHOP
The Exposure Made Easy workshop is for people who want to learn how to stop action, blur backgrounds and take photos in low light. It teaches how shutter speeds, lens openings and ISO settings work plus light metering and other exposure fundamentals.
3. DIGITAL CAMERA SETTINGS WORKSHOP
The Digital Camera Settings Made Easy workshop helps people who want to learn about how to set their digital cameras settings for different photography situations. It helps replace digital camera confusion with digital camera confidence.
FOUR GREAT DOWNLOADS
You can download photography quick reference cards and worksheets by clicking on Downloads in the EasyPhotoClass.com menu. They are a workshop condensed to a card.
1. CREATIVE VIEWING CARDS
The creative viewing card has a cutout that lets you visualize different creative combinations with the C.A.L.L.™ Creative Choices printed on the card for quick reference. It is a great way to learn how to see creatively by practicing your creative skills.
Ansel Adams thought before he shot. Shooting large negatives limited the number of shots he could take compared to digital. Sometimes with digital we shoot without thinking. The C.A.L.L.™ Creative Card helps you practice thinking before shooting.
2. EXPOSURE SETTINGS CARDS
The Exposure Quick Reference Card is a mini workshop on exposure settings with cards that show the settings visually and cards that explain them with illustrations. They can be downloaded to your computer, cell phone or tablet as well as being printed out to carry in they camera bag or wallet.
These Exposure Cards show visually how shutter speeds stop action, lens openings blur or sharpen backgrounds and ISO settings help you take photos in low light.
3. TOP 10 DIGITAL CAMERA SETTINGS WORKSHEET
Learning where the Top 10 settings are located on your digital camera and the buttons and dials you must use to set them is a great way to start learning your digital camera. How to Reset your camera settings is also included in case you mess them up while learning them. Doing this worksheet is a great idea before attending any photography workshop.
4. CAMERA & LENS BUYING SECRETS WORKSHOPS
This workshop has links to videos on buying Point-&-Shoot cameras, DSLR & Mirrorless cameras and Lenses as well as worksheets to help you find the best digital camera for you. It is also great to learn how digital cameras work so they make more sense.
I love photography and hope my workshops and downloads help make photography fun for you and help you take amazing photographs.
