"Shoot with a Pro"
One-on-One Photo Sessions

Shooting side-by-side with a professional photographer is one of the best, and certainly one of the fastest ways to step up to a new world of photography. It is a great way to "up your game" and fine tune your skills!

As valuable as classes and seminars are, there is nothing quite like learning photography one-on-one with a professional photographer at your side. Not only do you learn a lot by watching what the photographer does and how, you can ask questions and get tons of help and advice. You don't have to wait your turn while 20 other people clamor for a workshop leader's attention.

Jim has the ideal combination of practical photo experience and extensive teaching and field trip experience to provide an informative and inspiring learning experience.

Jim has 19 years experience teaching photography. He leads photography workshops for The Ohio State University and he has taught at Graceland University (Iowa) and the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts (Michigan). Some of Jim's former students are now shooting professionally. He leads several photography workshops and field trips every year and has worked with hundreds of photographers at all skill levels. Jim is the author of Digital Photography Exposure for Dummies, one of the highest rated photography books at
