"Great pedagogical skills and infinite patience! Lindsey is an excellent teacher who knows how to decompose the whole into manageable elements."
-Noelle R., Seattle, WA
I teach on Sat/Sundays, 10:00 am - 2:15 pm, online only.
When the weather becomes more predictably nice, I will start meeting outdoors again.
I take pride in helping others learn new concepts and techniques to find their voice and express themselves. I have been teaching adults since 2009, teenagers since 2015, and 6-12-year-olds since 2018.

"Extremely knowledgeable! Lindsey really knows her craft and is strong in both Lightroom and Photoshop. She immediately helped me improve my photos and made great suggestions regarding lenses as well. I will definitely work with her again!"

Due to the pandemic and inflation (and busy schedules), my lessons are online; this is the safest and most cost-effective way to continue teaching. This also allows me to reach more students and people all over the world. Online lessons are one-on-one and in real-time, which means they are not like watching YouTube videos, as they are a personal way to explore photography, Lightroom, Photoshop, or marketing with a professional.
Online lessons require you to have reliable internet and comfort with online platforms like Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams, or Zoom; this way we can share screens and follow along together.
When the weather in the Seattle area is predictably nice, I will start to meet students outside at public parks and trails. I am based in Woodinville and have travel fees for lessons outside my Bellevue/Redmond/Bothell/Woodinville radius (ex: Seward Park lessons - $105/75 minutes)
Individuals; teenagers to adults
Small business owners; those doing their own photography
Artists; new and mature
I have logged over a thousand hours of teaching; privately and with the University of Texas, Wyzant, and Youth in Focus. When I was an active tutor for Wyzant (an international tutoring platform) my rating was 4.9 out of 5 stars with over 100 reviews.
I'm a professional educator, content creator, and digital marketer. I possess knowledge of these fields by practicing them every day. You can trust me with your education. I taught digital arts for the University of Texas for 5 years. I've been teaching at Youth in Focus, a local nonprofit in Seattle, WA, since 2016. I have completed Master of Communications courses at UW, earned a Master in Professional Studies degree, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the School of Visual Arts.
I recommend 75-minute lessons. They are the perfect amount of time to fully understand the lesson and have time for practice and questions, but they are not too much time to overwhelm the brain. It usually takes a total beginner in photography, Lightroom, Photoshop, or general marketing 4 - 75-minute lessons to start seeing the bigger picture, pun intended. Always make sure your equipment is fully charged before a lesson.
"Picture perfect. Lindsey possesses the right combination of patience, communication skills, and industry knowledge, coupled with an easygoing demeanor, making her an excellent tutor. I look forward to working with her again in the future."
- Jonathan D., Dallas, TX
These boundaries help keep me open and keep my regular students happy and growing.
Zelle or Venmo only. I take payment right before our lesson or at the end of the lesson. I can't take money for multiple lessons at the same time. I run a very small, very simple service, and on the weekends only. I can not track payments and students.
Since I run so small and simple, rarely do I need to refund. But, every now and then payments and schedules get messy, and I've refunded the lesson a student could not make.
All prices are subject to change, especially depending on your specific needs and location.
Let's get creative!
