1:1 Photography Coach:
“I had a 1:1 Photo Coaching session with Joanne for Newborn Photography. Her #1 goal was the safety of the baby. Joanne showed me how to see where the light is coming from and how to use it for a pleasing photo of the baby. Her calm and patient demeanor with the mom and the baby made the session extremely non-stressful for them. As I took photographs, Joanne would advise a different setting or a different framing for my subject, or tell me what to focus on as I looked through the viewfinder. Even though I’ve been taking photos for a number of years, I learned some basic concepts that had eluded me about lighting. I look forward to meeting with her again and enriching my photography knowledge.”

“We must do this again!!  I had such a great time learning! I think you broke down the basics into an appropriate amount to learn for the first time. It wasn’t too much or too little. I’ll review whatever you send me and do some research on my own. As for something I’d like to start with, I think it’d be cool to do architecture first. I’m sure that would mean I could experiment in full sun and shade. I’ll start saving so I can get my own camera as soon as possible. Thank you, thank you for teaching me, Joanne and B!!”

Photography Workshop + 1:1 Photography Coach:
“I cannot thank you enough for the awesome experience at Carrie Furnace. I learned so much during our outing, and the opportunity to shoot such an interesting canvas fueled my passion for photography even more. I really appreciate the insight and detailed instruction and seeing what my camera could do with different settings and lenses; I can hardly believe I took some of these photos.  I may not be ready to independently shoot on my own, but I am definitely taking better pictures than before and I can’t wait until we can go out and shoot different places.”

Photography Workshop + 1:1 Photography Coach:
“I attended the Abstracts in Nature Workshop given by Joanne, and found a new way of seeing and photographing! Joanne inspired me to look closely at the scenes we were exploring to find forms and shapes that I would have never considered as photographic subjects.  It was a beautiful meditation in nature; an unhurried process of clear sight. Joanne’s patience and photographic knowledge are evident in all she presented to us. She was able to communicate the “why” and “how” of what we were doing with compassion and passion! I’ll definitely be taking another photography workshop with her again, and even explore attending a retreat.  It was a great investment in myself and I really learned a lot.”
