As an instructor in the visual arts, I am dedicated to developing the creative potential of my students. Successful teaching creates an environment in which the students can develop their own vision and ideas. I strive to balance teaching the technical aspects of photography with the conceptual, creative process of art making. I offer a variety analog and digital courses from introductory digital photography courses to 19th century photographic processes.
