I am very excited to be teaching Commercial Photography and Photo Journalism. I graduated from the University of Texas and worked as a photojournalist for 15 years. I have 35 years experience as a professional photographer. This is my 12th year teaching photography at THS.

This year we will work with High Dynamic Range Photography that shows all shadow details and high lights. By capturing 5 to 6 different exposures and compiling them, you are able to capture light how the eye sees it. 

We will use Google classroom and apply the "flipped classroom" technique where each one of you will view new material before attending class so that we will spend classroom time practicing the new material and posting new practiced work online. 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. My conference time is 8:40 to 9:30 am each Day. Please email me,, if you would like to schedule a meeting.
