Don-Orkoskey-PhotographerThank you for visiting, I hope you will sign up and take my class. You can read more about the classes I offer on the Classes page.

I'm a full time professional photographer. I've owned my own business for nearly 15 years and have worked as a professional photographer for more than 20. I have taught photography for nearly 15 years and teach classes in partnership with a number of amazing organizations including Phipps Conservatory and the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden. I teach classes for both adults and children and lead a free nature photography walk each week.

When I'm not working I spend a lot of time with my wonderful and amazing wife Zhanna and our adventurous shelter cat Glasha who loves to travel with us and watches birds from our windows when we're not traveling.

I'm also an advocate for a number of causes that are near and dear to me. To learn more about my advocacy and the things I care about visit the About page.
