Build A Strong Foundation For Your Photography Practice.

As a photographer, you will need to master the technical basics of the camera and form an understanding of the kind of equipment you need. I will also teach something even more important (and crucial for success) than the mechanics of digital photography - how to bring your creative vision to fruition.

I'm a seasoned photographer, have been taking pictures for 5 years. I'm also a member of the Toronto Photography Alliance. My lesson places emphasis on quality visuals and experiential learning. Here's your takeaway:

- How to bring together the elements of manual mode to create an evocative image: shutter speed, aperture, and image composition
- How to choose the right gear, and develop efficient workflow.
- How to recognize and take advantage of beautiful natural light.

I will teach you to step back from your images and think critically about your motivations, process, and ultimate goals for a digital photography project. ...

I am complete photography and art newbie. Stephen did a very thorough job teaching the course and ensuring the main and important concepts had stuck. He was happy to answer any and all questions regarding photography or even specifics of the different cameras that I should buy. I feel like I now know how to use the manual mode on my camera and how to take and compose some basic artistic shots.

Bridget is an amazing piano teacher. My 9 year old daughter loved that she would help her with pop songs as well as the traditional lesson book. She also helped her with voice audition songs for her musical theater group. We highly recommend!

About Tony

If you want to be the best, learn from the best. Talent, skill, confidence- priceless!. Choosing the right voice coach or singing teacher can be a difficult task, as there are so many coaches and teachers out there. My approach is unique in a sense that I do not believe in a "One size fits all"

I would highly recommend Tony Mitri as a voice and music instructor. My son takes lessons with Mr. Mitri and his progress has been astounding! He studies with other teachers previously without much success. My son has said he has learned more from Mr. Mitri than all of his previous instructors. He enjoys the lessons so he works harder at making progress and it shows. He helped him expand his range substantially, and increase his confidence. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in music of any kind. Mr.Mitri is awesome professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable. You won’t be disappointed.

One of the biggest struggles I notice with photographers across all levels of experience, is that they are not maximizing the capabilities of their cameras in different shooting conditions. If you don't consistently apply some of the simple rules of photography to your camera; then what your camera delivers or under delivers can be quite frustrating. Sure you can watch endless videos, read books, and ask friends for help. However, what I have learned in teaching numerous students is nothing is better than camera in hand, shooting with a coach, supporting your efforts.

Though we travel around the world teaching photographers wildlife and nature photography, we are based out of Kennesaw, GA. Meaning when we have down time, I can work with local students interested in learning photography in locations in which we are very familiar.

Mrs.Maggie posses vast amount of knowledge and experience in the field of art, and she is able to present all this knowledge in a way that the students can easily understand and pick up on.
