My background is in graphic design but I fell into photography and have loved it ever since. My expertise is Photoshop and anything after the capture of an image. My passion is educating photographers how to create high quality images in less time so you can make more money.
I am currently a Photography Instructor in the Hawkeye Community College Photography Program. I represent the new Digital Technician tract that began in 2012. For 13 years before Hawkeye, I was the Lead Digital Technician for Read Photography in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Marketing, web design, workflow, and graphic design were all part of my responsibilities during my time at Read’s.
