My name is Dustin Olsen! I am a graphic designer. Photographer. Presenter. Teacher. And a Mormon. I have always loved the creative profession and creating something new for others to see and use.
I grew up in Tooele, UT where I attended high school. While I was there I was apart of Future Business Leaders of America and was President my senior year. I was in Concert Choir and then in Show Choir and served in the presidency of both. I was also on the school newspaper staff as business manager. By my senior year I was Editor-In-Chief and Business Manager of the paper. I participated in the school musical, Seussical The Musical, and later became Box Office manager.
I started selling cars at the age of 18 for Quality Automotive in Tooele, UT. I became very successful and that’s when I really found my passion with interacting with people. After I sold cars, I served a LDS Mission to Fortaleza Brazil for two years before coming back to the United States. I learned to fluently speak, write, and read the Brazilian Portuguese language.
I have a Bachelors Degree in Web Design, with emphasis in Web Business, from BYU-Idaho in Rexburg. I have a split minor in Photography and Public Relations. I was highly involved in the Communication Department with the Visual Communication emphasis as a Teaching Assistant for the dean of Visual Communication and a Lab Technician to help professors and students with any visual design help. By the time I graduated, I designed and co-taught an advanced photography class.
I now teach online photography classes through ImprovePhotography.com at PhotoClasses.com to people from around the world. We are working on course development for several other courses to be offered, but focus mainly on helping people understand better about photography to achieve those professional results!
