So far, I've loved all of my classes with Sergio. His teaching style with photography fits my needs perfectly.

I like Sergio because he is very laid back and super funny. He fits incredibly well with my learning style and pace and I always enjoy our lessons. I was immediately able to pick up things I had previously struggled with upon taking his classes and have really enjoyed myself. Overall, I would absolutely recommend Sergio to anyone looking to start playing saxophone.

It was clear right away that Julie is very professional and highly experienced. I like how she started off with solid foundational work habits and methodologies to kick off my photography learning experience.
Angela
I've taken two online photography lessons with Julie so far and I have learned more in those two lessons than in all the group online courses I have taken in the past. Julie explains things very well and is very willing to answer any questions I may have. I am excited to continue my lessons with her!

“To take photographs means putting one’s head, one’s eyes, one's heart on the same axis.”

- Henri Cartier Bresson.

Are you ready to open your eyes to fresh ways of seeing and perceiving the world around you?

I teach the secrets of Natural Light Portrait and Street Photography. Through private one-on-one lessons, you will push beyond the cameras, lenses and technical jargon. You will learn the “insider” tricks necessary to enhance your observation, increase your anticipation, develop your timing, and build a photography style that is individual to you.

Each lesson is “hands on,” as we review together what you shoot between lessons. The goal is to help you analyze what works and what doesn’t, and you will grow in your confidence and skills.

For each of my students, I go above and beyond. I support my students with encouragement and specific feedback. My lessons will challenge you, but we will move at a pace that's comfortable for you. You will also laugh and have fun!

"I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Jacob. My husband gave them to me as a birthday present and it was tons of fun. Jacob was able to answer all of my nitty gritty questions, as well as general tips on improving my skills. The lessons were enjoyable and I learned tons. I've gone from shooting in complete auto mode, because I didn't know how to do anything different, to shooting in aperture priority mode with much better results. My Christmas portrait of my kids will be much better this year thanks to these lessons. If you're looking for an affordable way to improve this is a great option because you'll learn a lot in just a few one-on-one sessions. Jacob was also very flexible in working with me on the schedule for the lessons. Thanks Jacob!"

"My third lesson was all about drawing pictures and taking notes as Tony went through the exact steps I needed to edit my photos in Photoshop and PS Lightroom when I don't have Tony standing there guiding me. After explaining what I wanted to do, he was able to just show me the steps needed. In other words, he's a Pro at Photoshop. Like I said before, I can't ask for a better teacher and coach than Tony."
