    Great class; thoroughly enjoyed and was happy a signed up for it!
    Brad was great. Very informative and was willing to help you learn without being rushed I hope he teaches more often would love to take all his classes. This was the most I learned about photography in one evening
    Very informative and easy to understand.

    It was such a fun time taking pictures. Did something I normally wouldn't do and was able to expand my horizons a bit more. Bradley was a fun person to learn from!!
    Brad was knowledgeable, patient, and informative He provided us great insight and perspective. I learned so much that is immediately applicable. Looking forward to more opportunities to learn with Brad!
    Fantastic meet up at a great location! Would Love to see more Of this style

    I really enjoyed this. I've learned a lot about my camera and the lighting.
    Instructor (Brad?) was excellent. My teen daughter was in the class and I stayed to keep her company/observe. Brad was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He was clear in his teaching and allowed the students opportunities to practice the skills he introduced. He was very willing to answer questions and to help students practice skills to get them closer to their specific goals. I'd definitely bring my daughter to another class!
    I loved the class

    Hi! I'm Brad and after a long run in the professional world, I've been fortunate enough to take the skills I've learned and turn them into a business with the goal of helping you make and keep memories! Having a Master of Education degree and successfully working with both kids and adults, my goal is to make your picture-taking experience fun and stress-free. As the saying goes,
    "A picture is worth a thousand words" and for me, picture-taking is the essence of storytelling. Remember, some of these pictures may hang on family walls for multiple generations!

    I've been married for over twenty-five years and am a dad to two daughters, two dogs, and two cats and I enjoy traveling the world and learning about new things. I look forward to meeting you and seeing how I can help tell your story through images. I invite you to look through this website to see examples of how photographs can capture moments in the most unique ways.

    I was setup taking shots of birds on my deck when this black capped chickadee landed on one of my deck lights. Was shooting the bird when it decided to take off. Love the wing shots.

    This was actually the FIRST image I got to take with a Sigma 70-200 F 2.8 Sports that I have just gotten. My daughter, being special needs, is sometimes EXTREMELY difficult to photograph due to her typically not staying still for very long lol. But sometimes you get lucky, and sometimes you get to capture so much emotion in one image. And luckily for me, this is one of those images.

    I was cleaning my friends house and we had a snow storm. Luckily I had my camera and photographed the bridge my girlfriends husband Bob built. Years later the flooded creek took it out and it was never the same.

    I went on a week long vacation to see concerts in different states and stopped at the PA zoo! I decided to bring my camera along for the ride (even though I usually do portrait photography) and ended up taking this photo and I love it! I edited it with the Adobe lightroom and Photoshop apps on my phone.

    Working on trying new things! Plucked this Puff out of my front yard flower bed. Used a small compact mirror to create the shot using natural daylight thorough the window. The black and white spoke drama with such a simple subject. Taken with Canon rebel t7 and efs 18-55mm f/3.5-6.6Settings 1/60 f5.6

    Title or Location: My back garden in Hemel Hempstead
    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula

    This is part of a huge street art display, a real gem in Leeds. I loved the different displays of hands walking, creates a real sense of movement and intrigue. Photo was taken around 11am. The light you see shining on the hand is from a wall light. Camera setting - F4.2, 1/400 shutter and ISO 200.
