Love & Learn how to Use Your Camera Photography 101 // one ON one

If I've ever had the privilege of taking your photo you have probably heard me say something along the lines of, "I'm breaking all the rules here."  I say that because I use my camera in certain settings that may not be what are technically correct, however, for me they are creatively satisfying. I've learned through hours of study and have some of, what I consider to be the best examples of success that I've followed. I'll tell you what has worked and hasn't worked for me.


Sharing my fundamentals, technique, and strategy is something I'm passionate about and enjoy. Sometimes a camera manual can be intimidating and the best way to learn how to use your fancy pants camera is from a friend. I'd love to help you learn the basic settings and watch you run with whatever direction you feel led creatively. One photographer I taught a few tricks to takes sports pictures and they are awesome. It was HIS passion. I hope to meet you soon! - Steph

"I enjoyed meeting Stephanie. She was so down to earth and had so many great tips for me as a beginner photographer. I learned so much from her in one hour than I did during a six week vo-tech class. I enjoyed her teaching style so much that I contacted her for a photoshop lesson once I got it installed on my computer. Since I was from the Tulsa area she face timed me for that session and I was confident in my skills after that one hour session. She's been so helpful in the years since I started and has offered help and advice along the way. I now consider her a friend and recommend her to anyone looking to get more familiar with their camera or photoshop." - Kristen Hauglund
