My Story:
I had some friends at the Renaissance fair in San Francisco that where dancing at the night time parties and I thought "I want to learn that" then after my first time traveling in Europe I was in a Jazz History class in Santa Barbara City College.
I fell in love with Benny Goodman and swing music. But I guess I didn't have much of a choice as the music that followed wasn't very pleasant to the ears..

I started taking photographs in 1997 on that first trip to Europe and after two years I started taking photos of Lindy Hop.. And I have been enjoying it ever sense.

Instructor Bio:
I'm working on a lesson for dance specific photography.
I'm published in 6 magazines in 5 countries and have placed in an international dance photography contest behind two very well known and respected photographers.

My goal in my classes is to help people be less intrusive with their camera flash and to help others take better photos.
