Roland is generous, professional, and knowledgeable. He taught me a foundation in photography. When we began working together, he took the time to fully understand what I already knew and what I hoped to be able to do with my camera. We scheduled lessons at my in-house studio in Muttontown, NY. He arrived promptly with a tailored lesson, magazine articles about photography that he thought would interest me, and he always stayed till I ran out of questions- no short order. Then, he would email with detailed answers to tangent questions that popped-up. He shared countless tools for taking better photos in camera and how to edit them. He taught me about shutter speed and direction of light. Most importantly, he encouraged me to keep clicking through the frustrating moments of learning anything new. If you are looking for an inspired teacher, he is the best!
