Photography One On One Classes ,lessons Mentoring at my Studio Costa Mesa CA

One-on-One Workshops 
The technology of photography can be over whelming.

 However photography is not always about technology, it is about seeing and creating a feeling and a mood that other people can enjoy.

 This is what I will show you by working alongside you, helping you learn to see the art of photography in your chosen field, no matter the subject.

Classes are hands on, whether fine art, portrait, fashion or whatever the student’s interest are. My classes are about making you a better photographer and helping you achieve you goal in whatever your interest area is.

All classes are customized to you and built around what you want to specifically achieve and are set at your level of learning.

An Artist canvas can hang on a wall for  ever, but the canvas of a person with the art of a Tattoo artist can only last a life time ,

so as a photographer I very much appreciate being asked to capture there art as a photograph in color

some times it is just about naked breast nipples

I have work with many beautiful models who understand it is not always about a pretty face, as in this shoot it was about her nipples,
