COVID-19 Update

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic all courses and workshops have been cancelled. New course and workshop dates will be posted as soon as they become available.

Private lessons have resumed but the number of students I'll be taking on at any one time will be limited to minimize contact between individuals and groups.


I offer private photography lessons, introductory photography courses, and photography-related workshops in the Greater Moncton area. I have been teaching basic photography since the fall of 2011. Over the past decade, approximately 300 people have taken one of my courses or benefited from personalized, one-on-one instruction.

Details on private instruction, photography courses, and photography workshops can be found below.

Private Lessons

Private photography lessons are geared toward those who: prefer to learn in an informal, personal, one-on-one setting; are unable to commit to fixed schedules; have previously taken a photo course and are looking for a refresher; or, have specific needs they wish to address.

Private lessons are intended for individuals: however, I am willing to accomodate small groups (a maximum of four people) under certain circumstances.

Introduction to Photography courses are offered in the fall and winter (September to June). Each course is seven weeks long with approximately 18 hours of teaching time. Class size is limited to a maximum of 10 students per course.

The course is designed to give students a foundation in the principles of photography and an introduction to digital cameras and their main controls. Emphasis is placed on the exposure components - aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. Students will learn what they are, what they do, and how they can be manipulated for both technical and, especially, creative purposes. The intent is to allow new photographers to move away from the automatic modes, to take control of the camera and camera settings, and to improve the overall quality of their images.

Town of Sackville

The Town of Sackville, New Brunswick, has asked me to facilitate an Introduction to Photography course through the Department of Parks and Recreation community programs. Classes are normally offered from April to June.

The class discusses the same topics covered by my Introduction to Photography course. It is an eight week program (2-hrs per week for 8 weeks). Class size is limited to approximately 12 students.

For further information on upcoming classes, please contact the Town of Sackville at (506) 364-4930 or click on the link above to view upcoming programs. If the course is full, please join the waitlist. Multiple classes may be offered if demand warrants.
