Our Story

Providing Training
Since 2005

TiptonHolderBinkley Session 2017

I have enjoyed teaching for over 30 years. More if you count the years during high school, I taught my classmates basic photography. We did not have a photography teacher at the time, but we did have a small dark room.  I learned how to develop film and make prints at home.

In the late eighties, I spent some years teaching SCUBA diving and working my way up to the level of “course director”, a person who teaches instructors to be instructors. This was one of my methods to pay the bills during my struggling theater days.

After a while, I returned to school and earned my MFA in theater design, primarily lighting. Having my terminal degree in hand allowed me to pursue teaching positions. I have taught theater for over 20 years, from grade seven to graduate programs.
