  1. Hello,
    Would love to pick your brain. I’m a mother of two and have always taken pictures but no formal training. Back in 2008 I was excepted to the Hallmark Inst. of Photography in MA. I could not attend because my husband was deployed at the time and was shipped home with brain cancer. We also had a 5 month old son running around the house. So here we are three years later, my husband is cancer free! My little boy is 2, and my daughter 1. We are thriving and growing and it is time to pursue photography again.
    I noticed you mentioned you love to teach. Not sure where you are located in relationship to NY where we live. I am in the market for a new camera. I have no idea where to begin. The only cameras I have ever used where the manual cameras from back in the day. My step dad used them for teaching…never digital. Not I have to pocket digitals that are not quick enough to keep up with my eye – so to speak. What should I be looking for. What kind of lens? And what kind of camera has a quick shutter setting that allows you to take multiple pictures with one click?

    Thank you in advance, and be blessed! Kol Tuv (take care) Zie,

  2. Hi Lyndzie,

    Let me thank you for contacting me and best of luck to you and your family. I’m relieved to hear your husband is doing so well!

    I currently shoot Nikon and recommend Nikon or Canon cameras. There are multiple cameras to choose from depending on budget. Do some online research and then I can let you know. Choose Nikon or Canon as you’ll find as you grow in photography these two brands are the most supported and have the best lineup of equipment and lenses.

    Head down to B+H, Adorama, or Calumet if you can and shop. Choose a camera that feels comfortable in your hand as this is important. If you aren’t comfortable, you won’t use it.

    I’m in and out of the city, where are you located? We can meet and work something out for private instruction or you can join me in a workshop. I teach a lot of workshops during this time of year as my wedding work doesn’t really start till Spring.

    You’ll have better luck emailing me directly: rvh34@hotmail.com

    I hope this helps!
