I'M meredith! PHOTOGRAPHER, educator AND FRIEND


Beginners Photography


I spent years teaching myself how to use my camera. As a self taught photographer with possibly thousands of hours of YouTube under my belt, I knew there had to be a better way. You see, I am not only just a creative. I have to know the how's and the why's things work. Once it all clicked for me, I knew I wanted to make it easier for other people out there. I took what I learned, took out the fluff, and created my Beginners Photography Course. 

I am so fortunate to have advance training and mentoring by some of the top names in the industry. With my training and the high standards I set for myself, I take pride in providing the absolute best service to my clients…YOU! I will work to make sure you understand the components of photography, as well as your individual camera.

I offer one to one and group mentoring to photographers in Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Norfolk as well as the entire Hampton Roads area. I want to give my clients a personalized experience for beginners as well as seasoned photographers who are looking to improve their skill set.

Beginners Photography Course

First, I will teach you about your camera, settings and how to adjust them. More importantly, how they work. 
 In this part of the course I explain the fundamentals of photography using the Exposure Triangle and how to implement it with your camera.

Camera Basics

We will spend roughly one to two hours with a model working on lighting and composition, with real time guidance on how to adjust your settings. I will help you troubleshoot in real time and help you understand how to adjust.

We will get you out of your cameras automatic mode and start to use your camera to its full potential. You will walk away feeling comfortable with the information, and how to use it!
