Private Photography Teacher

I am a certified teacher with a master's degree in Radio, TV, Film and one in education as well. I was an adjunct professor of photography at Manhattan's New School for Social Research for 10 years and have spent another 10 years teaching other adults as well as adolescents photography. I have conducted private lessons as well as workshops in my own studio.
My teaching is unique because, unlike many photography clubs where members voice their various opinions on photographs, my technique involves an objective approach where lessons are given each time that can be analyzed to see if requirements of the assignment were met. This way, the student learns not just through critiques, but by comparing his or her results to successful examples. I also do quite a bit of field work and teaching by example. It's the most effective way to learn. I get students putting their digital cameras on "MANUAL" right away and they master the concepts of correct exposure right off the bat.

About William

I have been doing commercial photography for over 40 years. I owned and operated a large studio on West 22nd Street in NYC for 20 of those years and I taught photography from 1988 to the present. I have never stopped. I like one-on-one sessions, but I have also conducted many workshops and classes

Larianne is a Great teacher and has a lot of patience.
I’ve been trying to learn how to crochet on my own and I wasn’t getting no where, so I got in contact with Larianne and she meet me at Barnes and Nobles for a crochet class. She showed me different crochet patterns and different crochet hooks. She showed me how to crochet. Thanks to her I can make different crochet items.
Larianne was very helpful and I can’t wait to see her again to see what else she can teach me.
Agnes
Larianne is a fantastic teacher. She started teaching me back in 2017, and because of her, I have my Etsy job. I make baby blankets, infinity scarfs and kids Hood Hats. My client loves the result. I had the chance to participate in many of her craft shows, and the experience was terrific. Her passion for crochet became an inspiration to me. Now I love to crochet and do many things for my daughter and me. Right now, I am working on a full-size blanket, and Larianne is helping me getting the pattern right. I wish I can show pictures. Thank you very much, Larianne.
Elise
I have purchased several crocheted items from Larianne for my family and fell in love with her vlog snippets on Instagram so when she mentioned that she’d be offering lessons, I didn’t hesitate to sign up! As a teacher, she has been incredibly patient and very supportive. In just a few lessons I was able to start a scarf for my sister’s baby girl. Thank you so much Larianne for sharing your gift with us. I’ve told all my friends that they need to sign up! :)

Online Photography Teacher

Hello, my name is Brandie and I specialize in teaching beginner/intermediate photography. I enjoy teaching this subject to those new to the field or those that want to further their hobby. My focus is on fine art photography so I am well rounded in the use of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom for post-processing. Photography is an art form and can be utilized in countless ways. Once you master the basics, you can walk away with the confidence to photograph in any setting.

Color, composition, camera settings and of course post processing. I am also highly skilled in photomanipulation and composite work if that is an area you'd like to work on. Photography should be fun, challenging and rewarding, we can bring all three to the classroom to reach your full potential.

About Brandie

I have been a professional photographer for over 9 years and graduated with a degree in photography in 2012. I have a passion for what I do and love to share all the knowledge and experiences I've had over the years. I have a studio west of Chicago that can be used to demonstrate lighting and te
