Private Photography Teacher

Hello fellow students!

My name is Anabel, I am a professional photographer in Los Angeles, California. I photograph a variety of subjects, from pets to Grammy-nominated musicians, and everything in-between! I am well versed in studio photography and on-location outdoor work, and can help you learn to make the most of any location and subject matter.

Being self-taught, I believe that I have an entirely different approach to education; one that sits well with aspiring photographers, especially those that are disappointed in traditional (as in, college and university) photographic education. My teaching philosophy revolves around educating on the minimum and maximum capabilities of your gear and giving students all of the fundamental tools to create whatever image they have in their head (hence my lack of a photographic ‘niche’ in my work. When your camera becomes an extension of your arm, your subject pool is limitless).

In 2015, I had officially made my photography classes ...

Great start to first lesson
Kathryn (Royal)
I lost the "joy" of photography with Irina. Technically, she knows her stuff, but her sensitivity and people skills are lacking. Barely an encouraging word. I felt degraded, nervous, and overall shitty by the end of the second lesson. Hoping for a better experience with another teacher.
Desislava G.
Irina is amazing... I would never even think that I can create such beautiful photographies.
My father used to have a small photo lab at the loft and it was like a magic to me. I was always passionate to learn the beauty of photography however I never got the chance to.
I took few classes with Irina, she helped me to create incredible photos for my marketing campaign.
Irina is very professional and patient teacher, she has deep knowledge of photography and she makes it fun to learn.
I would recommend Irina to anyone who wants to learn photography.

I approach photography instruction from two perspectives. First, the elements of design and content: that's meaning and substance in photographs from an artist's perspective. We'll explore how a photographer captures the "decisive moment." This'll include formal considerations like composition, color, viewpoint/perspective, atmosphere etc.

The other perspective involves technical considerations such as lighting, focus and focal length, staging and more. Good photography is all about observation and editing in the camera. Post production is also part of the study.

Learn from a photographer who began as an artist and became a commercial photographer shooting sports stars like Tiger Woods and TV personalities such as George Stephanopoulos.

About Donna

I tailor my teaching to the level of each student. Instruction will be fun and exciting. With an education that's included six years in art school, my teaching style is creative and intuitive yet provides the structure needed to grasp concepts quickly. I gear all study to achieving a level of m
