How long have you been involved with photography?

Over 20 years.

What kind of camera gear do you use (Canon, Nikon, etc.)?


What level of experience do you put yourself at?

Intermediate, but expert in the review/critique of photographs. I have strong Photoshop skills and have put in many long hours helping students manipulate and retouch their photos (as well as my own). I've taught photo composition/concept and related classes for many years as well as self-promotion for photographers. I'm interested in sharing ideas, locations, and just the love of photography -- esp. shooting outdoors. My weakness is equipment, esp. lighting equipment -- but I have a very good understanding of light, light ratios and lighting in general.

How did you hear about us?

Went looking online for photography groups in Atlanta. Wasn't sure I wanted PPA. This sounds good to me.


I recently relocated to Atlanta from MA where I taught & headed up the Design/Imaging Arts Dept. at Hallmark Institute of Photography. I viewed thousands of images/week, but had no time to shoot. I am a designer that is now doing more photography.

What Joan T. is saying about this Meetup Group

I was very impressed with the professionalism, the friendliness and the care that everyone expressed while reviewing the photographs.
