Give us six months, we'll make you a better photographer!


We currently are taking on new students for one on one tutoring sessions. We will work with you to help you achieve your personal goals for photography skills, darkroom skills (Photoshop), and lighting skills.

If you are looking for advanced learning at your own pace, we can help! See our Personal Tutoring Program Brochure Here.



“I’ve been teaching lighting for ages, but when I watch Dale Simmons work I always learn something new, both in lighting, posing, and shooting techniques and in seamless ways to make the most complex topics easy to understand. His classes are a Master course in how to make your creative vision come alive.”


– David D. Busch, best-selling author of “David Busch’s Quick Snap Guide to Lighting” and more than 150 other books.
