Group Photography Classes
Group photography classes are an excellent way to master new skills, learn from professional experts, and meet wonderful people just like yourself with a passion for photography. Photography is a fascinating subject. However it can be a struggle to learn on your own. A group class gives you the benefit of expert instruction and peer support.

Group Photography Classes for Kids and Teens
Your child is growing up in an exciting time. Sign them up for a photography class for kids or teens. These classes show them the practical application of the STEM curriculum they're learning in school. Additionally these classes give them a creative outlet. I like to call it STEAM. Science, Tech, Engineering, Art, and Math.
The skills they will build in their photography class will help them throughout the rest of their lives. They will grow in areas include the following:
- Self awareness
- Critical thinking
- Analytical thinking
- Scientific knowledge
- Applied mathematics
- And much more
If your child already has an interest in photography help them explore their passion. Give them the opportunity to grow and learn about themselves, their world, and so much more.

Every student is different but my group digital photo classes are a great way to ensure that you get a full experience with supportive peers that are also looking to improve their digital photography skills and knowledge.
My practical instruction will help you master your camera, learn how to solve problems, explain concepts key to understanding photography, and will help you unlock your creative potential.

Working With Kids
I have my PA clearances to work with children and has taught kids at a variety of settings including through the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, the Andy Warhol Museum, the Homeless Children's Education Fund, The Westmoreland Museum of American Art, and more. My teen and kids classes are engaging, interactive, and fun. We learn a lot by harnessing our innate creativity. We practice problem solving, and focus on creating photos we envision through focusing on the solution. My process is grounded in the most up-to-date educational methodologies to maximize learning in ways that are positive and joyous.
