The Craft of Traditional Photography

The Craft of Traditional Photography

I have participated in the craft of photography as a digital artist, fine art photographer, multimedia web designer, and visual educator. I have been involved in photography and digital imaging for over eighteen years. I am skilled in multiple platforms and have in-depth experience in traditional photography, and Adobe Creative Suite®.

For a decade, I was a member of the visual arts faculty at Washtenaw Community College located in Ann Arbor, Michigan specializing in courses versed in Adobe Photoshop®, multimedia design, digital capture software, and traditional photography.

During this time, I was also extended the opportunity to teach at Wayne State University in Detroit, University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and the Art Institute of Michigan in Novi.
