Whatever path of photography you are on, we (should) never stop learning. If you are setting up your own studio but find yourself stumped as to what you need, and what goes where, June can get you on the right path, and it's so much better and faster than trying to learn online with impersonal, general, and remote instruction.
Fast-track your understanding of the digital camera - demystify all of those buttons and settings to set you free to create the images you dream of! Learning to shoot in modes other than AUTO is key to controling the camera and getting the most out of your DSLR. We can concentrate on various areas of photography as well, e.g. wildlife, portraiture, lighting and posing, advanced techniques - whatever your skill level and desire to learn, if it's in my 'wheel house', we'll do it.
Depending on the track of requested instruction:
Looking forward to meeting you and having fun, interactive and hands-on classes!
The Studio's Camera Room

Cheetah in the Masai Mara of Kenya For most landscape images an acceptably sharp focus is desirable throughout the photo, like this one of Reine in the Lofoten Islands, off the coast of Norway above the Arctic Circle.
Natural Light is available for everyone. No special studio lights required. But it helps to discover how to find beautiful light in which to 'paint' your subjects.
