Private Photography Teacher

I got my first camera when I was 8 years old and have been a passionate shutterbug ever since. I can teach you how to use all of the manual features on your camera to get the effects you want to achieve, and I can help you to train your eye to see and capture memorable compositions.

Taking pictures is the first part of the journey - the second is editing them to adjust exposure, saturation, contrast, etc. I work with Photoshop and can teach you how to tune your images and fix problems like lens dust, harsh shadows, or face shine in flash pictures.

I encourage each student to find his or her personal style to express a unique vision. You don't need any experience to become an artist, just the desire to start noticing new things all around you and capturing moments to share with others!

Nicole is terrific! She really knows her business and can make adjustments for special needs. She understands my issues (recent voice and throat problems) and is already helping me overcome them to meet my vocal goals.

I do not believe I could have found a better voice teacher forme anywhere!

I’ve always wanted to take beautiful pictures but just couldn’t. Thanks Michael for showing me how to capture the moment with depth of emotion and hues. You’re style of instruction was easy to follow and he tips that you shared were very helpful. I’m excited to learn more.

"I am so thankful I found Jon via takelessons for photography lessons. He is an amazing, encouraging and a patient teacher. Before the class, we discussed my goals and Jon came up with a lesson plan to help me meet those goals in 3 days of classes. I have learnt so much during our classes so far - the impact of light on photographs, the importance of talking with the subjects/models and the benefits of patience and being a keen observer. Jon is ever so helpful and is always suggesting ways to help me improve my photography skills. Thank you Jon!!!"
