No Zen - Zen.jpg

I've been a photo educator for over twenty years now. It's been a rewarding and very challenging career path. It wasn't what I planned, but I'm thrilled to have found it. Along with my regular photo assignments, I am the director of Education at Johnson PhotoImaging in Bradenton, FL—a great place to keep up with the latest gear and a fantastic place to meet photographers. I teach courses about photographing the Milky Way, Landscapes, Low Light Photography, and more. My favorite part of teaching is watching people I've taught or assisted go on to even better work.

Photography is my love and my passion. Join me on a Photo Walk, a Photo Field Trip, or in the classroom, and I'll be happy to share what I know with you. You can find a complete list of classes and events I teach at Johnson PhotoImaging click here.

Journey into Camera Controls: Exploring Menus and Improving Your Photography.


This personalized private lesson is designed to guide you in navigating the primary menu, button controls, and overall operations of your Mirrorless, D-SLR, or other advanced camera. During the tutorial, you can expect in-depth instruction on essential topics such as exposure, focusing, scene settings, shooting modes, and practical tips to enhance your photography skills. This lesson suits Canon, Nikon, Olympus (OM Digital), Panasonic, Sony, or any other digital still camera (excluding tablets, smartphones, and film cameras). Anyone looking to improve their camera skills will benefit from this personalized learning experience regardless of age.

I also have basic software tutorials on Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, and Luminar Neo​.


Fees for Online or On-Location - 1st hour is $150, and each additional hour after is $90. A flat fee of $50 will be added per on-location visit. My service area covers from Port Charlotte to Arcadia to St. Pete.
