Whether you have never picked up your DSLR camera before or are starting to become serious about photography, my lessons will help you get on the right track. I have been teaching Photoshop on Takelessons for 3 years now, and I am now deciding to expand my lessons and offer photography as well. We can go over how to use your camera, what gear you should bring, lenses, how to control: shutter speed, aperture, ISO, etc. We can get into technical aspects such as printing, post processing, and sharing your images online as well.

Hi! My name is Sam! This is my fifth year with TakeLessons and I couldn't be happier with the students that have come my way. If you're reading this, then you've taken the first step in finding a tutor that is right for you!
I completed two Bachelor's degrees at Worcester State University in Massachusetts. I have a B.A in Spanish and a B.A in Communication.
I love Spanish, and I believe that you can really get the hang of it after a little time and practice. With grammar review, practice, and vocabulary memorization, it becomes really easy to learn this language. I am more than happy to be here to help you learn this exciting language! Proper pacing is crucial to learning a new language. Therefore, I make each lesson customized for every student.
Every lesson, you will receive downloadable links with all of the content covered
in the lesson.
I also teach group classes. These are great for those that prefer larger classrooms and interacting with peers. Check out the Takelessons Live page and sign up for some of my classes!
Aside from Spanish, I also teach Adobe Photoshop & Photography. There are endless possibilities with Photoshop, and I am here to let you discover some of them. No experience? Tired of watching online tutorials with no feedback? Maybe you need a tutor to guide you through the process!
We will start off with layers and then go on from there, moving into the more intricate tools such as the pen tool, layer masks, and blending modes.
For photography lessons, I teach you the technical language you need to know when talking about photos. I will show you how to command your DSLR camera to get the exact photo you want.
Are you ready to improve your photography? I'd love to help you capture the special moments in your life beautifully and realize your artistic vision.

I am a Graphic Designer with a full time job teaching Photoshop and Photography in high school. After receiving many requests from amateur and professional photographers, as well as aspiring graphic designers, willing to learn the unlimited creative possibilities that Photoshop has to offer, I decided to join Takelessons and become a teacher here. If you would like to learn how to create literally anything your imagination leads you to, or just use techniques to obtain an effect you have seen somewhere, you came to the right place. You can discover the secrets of professional photo retouching or dive in the surrealism of advanced photo manipulation, Each lesson will be customized to your specific needs. On the other hand, if you are just getting started in Photography, Photoshop or Graphic Design, you have likely tried those You T
ube videos and gave up in frustration, as most of these videos are too fast or too advanced. No worries, we can go through the basics at your own pace, until you feel comfortable with using the tools on your own. The sky is the limit.
Note: in order to book classes for advanced techniques, students must have the necessary basic and intermediate proficiency levels. If you are not sure what your level of proficiency is, please check with me and we can figure it out together.
