Tutoring FAQ

Frequently asked tutoring questions

What topics/cameras do you cover?

No question is too small. I cover most digital photography topics from camera basics, fundamentals basics, exposure settings, lighting, flash, Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, action/sports, landscape, portraits, posing. I'm most experienced with Nikon but can work with any digital camera. I approve every session manually so if you're requesting a topic I can't cover, I'll contact you to cancel the session, refund the deposit and help you find the coverage you need.

How many sessions do I need?

Most clients start with one session and then schedule additional sessions as necessary. Some photographers need only one session to accelerate in a new skill or get an overview of photography basics. Some take a few sessions, practice, and then come back a different season for more.

How does the booking process work?

Visit my booking page to browse and select sessions and times. You'll pay in advance to reserve your time. You must book 24 hours or more in advance. I'll manually confirm your session (in case it's a topic I can't cover or we need to arrange an in-person session). You'll get a confirmation with your Zoom meeting link and followup reminders.

Do you travel to my location?

The default option when booking a session is Online, which is through Zoom. However, I approve each request manually so if we both agree an in-person session is better, we can arrange it within Dodge County only (WI).

Do you do online sessions?

Yes, the default option when booking a session is Online, which is through Zoom.

Do you have a student discount?

Yes, students get 50% off (in the form of a refund) with valid student ID card or proof of age under 18.

Can I get a price break with multiple sessions?

Yes, you get $10 off your second session and $20 off your third hourly session with me, and then the price resets to $99. For example, if you do 5 sessions, you'll pay $99, $89, $79, $99 and $89.

How do I pay you?

Payment is done in full via Stripe when you book your session. I accept credit and debit cards only, no checks. This is to ensure you're committed to attending and accelerating your photography. Thank you for understanding.

What is your cancellation policy?

I have a 24 hour cancellation policy. You may cancel any time up to 24 hours before your scheduled booking for a full refund. If you cancel within 24 hours of the scheduled booking, you get an 80% refund. If I cancel the event, you get a full refund.
