I teach: macro photography, fairytale-styled shoots, how to work with kids, album building, and album selling. I am a 6ft tall redhead and I am very animated, so my classes attract an audience even when people hadn't originally planned on staying to watch them.
I am a current SIGMA America Ambassador. Contact SIGMA for scheduling me as a speaker if you'd like to have them there for your event or conference.
