My goal in teaching is to share my enthusiasm for the fine arts with my students, improve their ability to articulate the concepts in their work, and enhance their understanding of the role of photography within art history.
As a professor, my role is to teach students foundational skills and then give them the freedom to find their own creative visions, providing guidance as they construct self-directed bodies of work. The best gift a fine arts instructor can give students is to introduce them to a new creative passion, something that will continue to inspire, motivate, and transform them for the rest of their lives.
