Private Photography Lessons Offered sticky icon

I am now offering private photography lessons. My experience with photography is as follows:

·       42 years of experience.

·       Graduated with High Honors with a degree in Professional Photography from Daytona State College.

·       Worked for 9 years as an industrial/promotional photographer for Pratt & Whitney Aircraft.

·       Owned my own commercial photography studio for several years.

·       Have been published in a major national magazine.

·       Have experience with several different formats in film cameras, including 35mm, 2 ¼ square, 2 ¼ x 2 ¾, and 4 x 5 view cameras.

·       Familiar with all aspects of the chemical darkroom, both color and B&W.

·       Familiar with DSLRs and the digital darkroom (Adobe Photoshop CS5).

·       Have experience with both location and studio lighting. In the studio, I have used electronic flash equipment or natural window light, or a combination of the two.

I can teach beginning, intermediate, or advanced photography skills. This type of training has distinct advantages over a college course or a course on the internet. If you are interested, please contact me, Don Bassett, at dwbassett616@yahoo.com or talk to me at the next meeting of the Gainesville Photo Club. Thanks.
