In addition to my “day job” and my personal/professional photography, I also teach several 10-week classes and 2-3 day workshops at Photoworks in Glen Echo park in Glen Echo MD every semester. Photoworks is a space for working photographers and students of photography to learn, create, and collaborate through hands-on and virtual classes, a massive darkroom, and a gallery space in the heart of the arts community in Glen Echo.
I also provide provide private classes, workshops, and mentoring in my studio. Please inquire with your needs.
