Teaching Photography

I’ve taught photography in many settings. Nothing academic but more down to earth and on the level of the snapshot. Senior citizens, inner-city youth and homeless individuals. The settings included community centers, group homes and shelters. The pictures mostly taken on the streets of Boston. The aim was to learn basic compositional skills, how to use whatever camera was to hand and shoot. In the end there was always an exhibition. Funding was personal with money tossed in by the participating organization. At one time I even received a grant from the City of Cambridge.
