As a college graduate with two Associates degrees in Fine Arts & Associates in Digital Arts, and a Certificate of Completion in Digital Photography, I've learned a tremendous amount about photography and operating the camera. I'm eager to share this knowledge and these skills with my photography students.

You'll learn the basic functions of your camera, how to compose a great photograph, and if you need help with editing and managing your photos I can help you with that as well. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions, I'm always happy to help!

Josiah is a great teacher! Very knowledgeable and helpful! I would definitely recommend booking a lesson with him!

He was patient and took the time to work with me on my current website issues. He went above and beyond to help. Easy to work with.
Keith Rivers
Josiah is an EXCELLENT teacher. I purchased WordPress early in 2021 in order to build a company website. After going through tons of YouTube and WordPress lessons for literally several months, I still had no idea what I was doing and my website was also going nowhere.

After choosing Josiah as my instructor, I had an immediate improvement of my website and also gained a wealth of knowledge about website design and building in a very short amount of time.

Josiah is very, very knowledgeable and patient. I never feel coerced. He listens to my questions and concerns and gives timely, reliable feedback. Most importantly, he genuinely wants his students to learn.

Additionally, I appreciate the fact that there are no assignments, no exams, I only have to learn what is important and what I want and need to know, and I can do all of this at my own pace with absolutely no obligations or constraints.

In addition to the website building, Josiah also unselfishly gives invaluable expert advice on other topics such as marketing and advertising. I am very grateful for his help.

I am happy he is my tutor. I don't think I could have chosen a better tutor. I strongly recommend him as the number one tutor for website building with WordPress.

I got my first camera when I was 8 years old and have been a passionate shutterbug ever since. I can teach you how to use all of the manual features on your camera to get the effects you want to achieve, and I can help you to train your eye to see and capture memorable compositions.

I encourage each student to find his or her personal style to express a unique vision. You don't need any experience to become an artist, just the desire to start noticing new things all around you and capturing moments to share with others!

For in-person lessons, we will meet in an outdoor setting to learn photography in natural light and existing light conditions. Online classes can be held in any location you have access to over Zoom, FaceTime, or Skype.

What is the Best Lighting for Photography?

Natural lighting versus studio lighting brings about two different looks in your photography. We'll be discussing natural lighting, which does not need any equipment.
