About the Instructor
Mac Dy has been shooting for the past 22 years with no end in sight. He started out in 1987 with film cameras learning how to see in black and white through a dirty viewfinder.
Although shooting film was an exciting endeavor Mac took the plunge in
digital photography with a very tiny point and shoot in the late nineties. And as fate would have it, DSLR cameras became his go to gear.
With 12 years of editing images digitally, he now feeds his family through specializing in family events, family portraiture, press events, product shots and does not like to carry big heavy lighting gear and so prefers the convenience of flash photography.
