I've had several people inquire about watching me edit and after much thought I've decided to offer private lessons. They will be held in my home, mornings Monday-Thursday during the school year. There are 5 options to choose from. And there are two levels. Level one is for personal use, for those who just want better pictures on an everyday level. Level two is for professionals, those who will be running a business and selling their images. Level one students will be signing an agreement that they are taking the lesson for personal enrichment and have no intentions of starting a business or selling their images. Level two students will be required to have their place of business a minimum of a 20 mile radius from the intersection of 207th and Switzer in zip code 66013.
