Photography Mentoring Program

Sharing knowledge is the responsibility of all professionals. Whether you are new photographer or a seasoned professional growth is always possible. My personal credo is that you are only as good as your last photograph. This has led me to the concept of mentoring. Working with a mentor is a proven method that will assist you in achieving your goals as a photographer. I have developed a mentoring program over the past two years that offers three options providing a wide range of opportunities for everyone. Each course will be designed to fit the individual’s current base of knowledge. I will cover areas that will support consistent growth and stability in producing quality and artistic results. For those that have Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom 2 I will also work with you on post production techniques that I have found to be useful.


The 6 week program will cost $900.00, an 8 week program at $1,100.00 and the 12 week program will be $1,600.00. Each week I will provide 4 hours of telephone support, assignments with assignment review, portfolio review and directional support. It all starts with a conversation to determine your current status as a photographer. I will then work to develop a plan of action so that you reach the goals you have dreamed of attaining. Thanks so much for your interest in participating in my mentoring program. I look forward to working with you in the expansion of your knowledge.

Session V – 9:00 PM to 11:30 PM City Lights Series Methodology [Advanced Class]

Have you ever wondered how to shoot at night and maintain greater depth of field? Do you wonder how to have total control of your environment while including people in your images? David’s methodology will teach you to accomplish that. This class will be presented on location and will give participants an opportunity to work with the techniques and methodology that are presented. This is a must for any amateur or professional who is inspired by the night. Imagine, shooting at 100 ISO, f-10 to 22 at exposure times from 5 to 120 seconds or more. Achieving results under these conditions takes a solid understanding of the technique. You are invited to add this challenging class so your night photography will explode in artistic and technical excellence.


A camera with full manual control capability, a tripod, cable release and off camera lighting will be required for the City Lights Series class. If you have additional portable strobes, bring them along. David will talk with you about radio control/transmitters & receivers.
