If you’re like me, you simply enjoy making pictures. I’m fortunate enough to be a full-time photographer–which really means I run a small business, and I get to make pictures sometimes :D People tell me I’m passionate, and if that’s true, then helping others better their photography is right at the top of my list of passions (just below my wife and daughter…and Thai noodles. I love me some Thai noodles). When we learn together, I promise you’ll have a good time, you’ll learn new skills, and I’ll do my best to rub some passion off for you. Oh, and I’ll knock your socks off with my approach to street photography. I can’t wait to see you. I write regularly for Photofocus.com, and you can check out some of my articles on my website.
