About Bradley
Hello from Seattle! I love teaching! For more than 40 years and I have been a professional photographer. I was the Team Photographer for the Washington Stealth pro indoor lacrosse team for three years, and teach photography at the Pacific Science Center, the Bellevue Club, The Leica Store, Glazer's Camera, Omega Photo and other locations. I have shot professionally since I was 15. My photos have been published in several magazines and I have three photos published in the New York Times. I was the mission photographer for the first private spaceflight - Space Ship One, and the first ocean plastic cleanup system. I have experience shooting dozens of cameras from nearly every manufacturer. I often write camera, software and lens reviews for online sites. I am also a former employee of Apple in their advertising department.

I love teachin
g:

~ Photography 101, Basic Photography How To's
~ Learning How to Really Use Your Camera (Nikon, Canon, Sony, Leica, Panasonic, Olympus and more)
~ How to pick and use the right lenses for the task
~ Photos for your Online Store: Table Top Photography
~ Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop
~ Photo Processing, Editing, Storage
~ Basic Portrait Lighting
~ Travel Photography including making travel books
~ Black & White Photos from your Color Photos
~ Sports Photography
~ Printing Fine Art Photos
~ Color Management
~ Mac computer setup and optimization for photography

and other topics that may be of interest to you. I especially love doing a portfolio review with you where I give you honest critique and suggestions on how to improve your existing photos and think about elevating your new photos.

I like to start with new students by talking on the phone or emailing before our first lesson to get a good sense of your experience and your goals in getting more instruction in photography. I do not charge for this initial conversation once you have registered and scheduled your first lesson package.

Three of my students have gone from amateur to professional and are selling their work.

I am married (28 years!) and I have two boys - one in high school and one graduating college. I have several students in their early teens - I love teaching them because they're so motivated and unafraid of the technology.

We can do lessons together online using Zoom - we can see each other, hear each other, share screens and I can show you step by step how to do everything we cover! Zoom conferencing is free, there's nothing to buy, so it's included in my lesson prices. My students love our online sessions - we go at your pace and answer all the questions you have. My students range in age from 11 to 80.

I am most proud of this comment from one of my students:
"There is a difference between teaching and mentoring. While the terms seem similar they are distinct in their approach to the recipient. Brad is innately both with the lessons I participated in. He is a teacher and a mentor.

He taught me but he also "brought me along". On one hand, he gave me excellent raw knowledge and technique but still, on the opposite side of the coin, gave constant reality-based feedback and pushed me without hurting my enthusiasm. He told me about his successes and shortcomings "once upon a time ago" and I didn't see him as infallible as many instructors want you to, I saw him as having lived a path, scouted it, and coming back to help show me the way. He didn't just tell me where I was going wrong, he showed me, then showed me how to correct it, then guided me through the process of correcting it, then followed up. Who could ask for more than that?

Brad is the total package when it comes to instruction. I am a better photographer for having studied with him. I am also making my dreams come true as a businessman. I owe most of that to him. I look forward to my next lessons, but honestly I more so look forward to what is behind the doors he will inevitably open up for me."

About Justin
After studying at Drexel University and securing a B.S. in Information Technology with a Minor in English Literature, I studied for a Master's in Digital Media at Drexel University. As an undergraduate I was given the honor of acting as the commencement speaker for my school. As an MS graduate, I earned the Outstanding Master's award for my research and community contributions.

Drexel's professors and leadership supported my growth as a professional by hiring me on as an Adjunct Professor of Digital Media where I taught game design, project management, and 3D animation. I also served as a committee member to several graduate students. I've recently entered the games industry as a designer, embarking on a year-long game engineer position with Disney. I'm most rewarded when I provide mentorship to those who want to learn. I look forward
to working with you!

I wrote a review when my son first started working with Justin and a few months later I must say the experience continues to be exceptional. Justing puts so much thought into preparing for his lessons. He pays attention to what works best with my son's learning style and personality and is able to shift gears when necessary. He is extremely knowledgeable and not only recommends resources but answers questions via email between sessions. My son is feeling much more confident and has started to read books and articles on game design. I was so impressed that I started working with Justin as well. He has been an excellent HTML and CSS tutor and I am not at all a techie. I can't recommend him enough!

My son took his first online computer programming lesson with Justin yesterday. He had been trying to learn to code/make video games on his own but was finding it difficult to determine where to focus his energies. The lesson with Justin exceeded his expectations. He feels focussed and learned more in his first session than he has in the few weeks he has been trying on his own. I was impressed with Justin's prompt response to my initial inquiry which went out to several tutors. From his response it was clear that Justin had put a lot of thought into his response. He asked follow up questions was able to clearly articulate how he could address my sons needs. He put the same thought an energy into preparing the first lesson which he shared with us prior to the session. My son is looking forward to continuing to work with Justin. We will definitely be booking more lessons.

About Etana
Hi! My name is Etana, M.S. I am a detail oriented, self starting designer with 12 years of professional experience under my belt. From print to web, design is not simply what I do for a living, it is my passion.

I run a Tempe, Arizona based business called SocietyJazz = ‘Society’ as in the totality of people and ‘Jazz’ as in all that stuff. Society Jazz brings together my core concepts: People .Passions . Environments.

I bring this philosophy into my teaching method: I believe that each person is uniquely different so therefore their love/passion in life and how they bring it into the world is their own. I use this philosophy to create unique lessons based on you, how you learn and what you want to learn.

There isn't a creative challenge I won't take on with you no matter your experience level. My greatest joy is to share my pas
sion of Design with you.

About Rodrigo
I am very patient, I would rather have you fully understand each concept than just get through the lesson. I can explain other software in and out of the autodesk suite that can be used together in a pipeline with autocad as the drafting tool. I have a background in engineering, manufacturing, and also art.

About Edward
A little about myself.

I'm an artist, illustrator, and designer primarily. Born and raised in California in a desert but I love ice skating, swimming, and generally stuff you wouldn't find there.

Teaching's been a passion as I live for that a-ha moment of clarity and understanding. As a lifelong student, I hope to learn from my students as much as I instill into them.

About Gerardo
My name is Gerardo Morabito. I studied Mechanical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology. I am a STEM focused tutor that specializes in teaching all levels of math (AP included), science, academic test prep, and college level classes. One of my greatest strengths as a tutor is my ability to communicate with my students. I identify areas that need improvement and figure out where the fundamental disconnect between the material and my student's understanding of it exists. In addition to tutoring, I have 7 years of experience in technology startups in the semiconductors and consumer electronics industries.

My philosophy is to teach my students to learn by intuition and logic rather than memorization. I emphasize teaching the fundamentals to build up a strong foundation of understanding. I believe this approach produces sup
erior long-term learning and enables my students to continue succeeding later in life.

Gerardo helped me out in Calculus because I was truly struggling. I had a tough professor and I had not taken a math course in a couple of years. He did a great job at tutoring me through webcam and he was really patient with me. I would definitely recommend!

Gerardo helped me prepare for my AP Calculus AB test. I had trouble understanding certain concepts such as related rates and using integration to find volumes. He explained problems very clearly by going step-by-step, and making sure I understood the process every step of the way. I highly recommend Gerardo if you are looking for a math tutor.
