Photography in a digital world involves the use of a wide range of technology on a regular basis. From buying a computer, using editing tools, and setting up backups, hobbyists and professional photographers alike must rely on their computer to store, process, and share their images. If you enjoy photography but are frustrated with the technical aspects of dealing with digital photos or running photography business, I offer mentoring services to help.
I’ve grown up with computers and have a long history of making them understandable to others. I remember using a PC at home in 1985, when I was just a young child, and I worked for my dad’s software company in college. After college, I spent much of my early career in technical writing and related jobs, making complicated technical concepts easy for others to understand. Then in 2001, my husband and I launched a computer consulting company, providing IT support, web design, and web hosting services to small businesses.
I opened my photography business in 2013 and joined the Clickin’ Moms photography forum at that time. While I joined to expand my photography skills, much of my time on the forum has been spent helping other photographers solve their technology issues. My desire to educate others led me to apply for Click Pro, and I was accepted into this talented network of photographers. As a Click Pro, I have various opportunities to share my knowledge with others, and I’m working on some tutorials and other educational materials through Clickin’ Moms.
