About us

Thank you for visiting Photo Solutions University.

If you’re tired and frustrated with poor lighting, bad color, unflattering poses or photos that don’t sell you are in the right spot.

We have over 20 years of photography and graphics experience and we know we can help you become a better photographer. We can help you build your photography hobby into a professional business. All it takes is some training. That’s what our Photo Solutions University site is all about. We are the premiere source for online photography training.


The photography training you will be receiving is not classroom theory. It’s not just articles. It is actual in-the-field, on-the-job training, the basic nuts-and-bolts of becoming a better photographer. You will learn the basics of photography lighting & posing as well as advanced photography tips, tricks and techniques from experienced, award-winning photographers and a support team of seasoned, digital imaging professionals.


I started out doing weddings out of my home – just like many of you have done or are doing. Since then I have won many awards for my photography, owned 3 three studios, a successful photo lab, and a digital systems integration company who helped hundreds of photography studios convert from being film-based to being digital.

I have been training professional photographers all across the country since 1989 in photography and digital work flow. Many of these personal training sessions were at the cost of several thousands of dollars.

I have also been a speaker at many national, regional and speciality photography associations. Some of these include, PPA (Professional Photographers of America), SPI (Seniors Photographers International), PMA (Photo Marketing Association), PSPA (Professional School Photographers Association), SPAA (Sports Photographers Association of America). I have also done presentations on behalf of numerous nationally known photography companies like Kodak and Imageware Software. It would typically cost approx $100 for a 1/2 day seminar, a couple hundred for a full day class and over a $1000 to go to a week long seminar per student.

I tell you all of this not to pat myself on the back, but to assure you, I’ve been where you are and know how to get you to where you want to go. We realize that you can’t afford to go to all of these seminars, presentation and training you need, so we are bringing them to you!!!


After graduating with a Commercial Graphics & Product Design degree from Olivet Nazarene University I helped start up a youth sports photography company in Paducah Kentucky. At the beginning all we did was action tournaments and only printed flat prints without any graphics. After a short time I introduced my first custom poster and after the first weekend it changed the game forever. I have over 10 years of experience in the youth sports photography market from almost every position. After a large outcry for sports graphics from the youth sports photography industry I launched Spotlight Photographics. To date I have sold my sports templates to over 1000 customers in more than 5 countries.

I have also been a speaker and vendor at Imaging USA (PMA), SYNC, PPM (Professional Photographers of Michigan PMA), SPI, Photo Pro. I have also been a featured speaker for many years with DDlab at their yearly photographer workshops.

My goal is to supply you with the knowledge and great graphics that will improve your business and make it a success!

What makes us different than the “other” photography schools and websites is the video component of our classes. Reading about photography techniques and procedures is good. But, photographers are visual animals. It makes sense that they learn by being shown.

The best training for you is now the closest to you, 24/7, and at the lowest cost.

Just connect to our subscriber page whenever you can. The middle of the night works fine. Watch a video or two. You learn as you go – at your own pace – from videos that don’t just tell you about it, they show you.

You will be going to some actual shoots with us. Watch us change the settings. We’ll tell you why. We’ll show you. Then you’ll do it. It’s fun!

New videos are being introduced on a regular basis. Your membership gives you access to everything we have 24/7. No charge for viewing; it’s all included as part of your subscription membership.


We have FREE articles with quick tips you can read. We have FREE video instruction for some quick tips and for you to sample our video library. We have video “trailers” about the classes you will have access to.


Our newsletter will keep you up-to-date on any new video release and special offers. You will also find a photo tip or two on lighting and posing tips..
