about your instructor

Jan Tyler of One Boy Photography is a natural light photographer living outside of Charleston, SC with her husband, son, and dog. Her son is the main subject of her work and the inspiration for her love of light. Jan creates a strong connection between the subject and the viewer by combining a minimalistic photography style with storytelling details. She often uses the Lensbaby Composer Pro Optic Swap System on her Nikon d750 to help isolate and draw the viewer’s attention to her subject, and also enjoys using the editing process to help her tell her stories.

Her portfolio is available here.
