Photography Classes

In my photo coaching work I bring over thirty years of professional photography experience for you to learn at your level to get great shots. I help beginners with their brand new cameras, I work with professionals as a mentor, and consult with companies and start-ups. My students have helped me evolve a unique method of teaching the DSLR camera that has earned me five stars on Yelp. I blend the craft with the functions on the camera to show you how to be creative and tell your story. You invested in a high quality camera, why not invest in a great class? Personal, intense, no more than six people, way more fun.

I took a course at Phototrainer to help me better understand my camera and what it could do. Tom really helped explain all the features and functions with good examples and an excellent supplementary booklet that goes with the camera’s manual. I now feel much more confident with using my camera now.
