If you wish to learn photography, whether just as hobby and to further your knowledge, or if you desire to become a pro, you would not find anyone as accomplished as I am. I am a world renown elite fashion photographer, having worked for world top fashion designers and top international magazines. I have worked as a photographer around the world for 25 years and in over 30 countries, I can teach you the very best and simple ways to achieve high levels and excellence in your photography skills in the shortest time you would have ever hoped for.

About Wahb
I have practiced Many different Martial Arts, like Karate, Kung Fu, Philipinian Kali eskrima since the age of 10. When I turned 25 I fell in love with Kickboxing and Thai boxing, after I have practiced these combat sports disciplines for a couple of years I took a Kickboxing and Muay Thai course for coaches with the Italian Academy and Federation of combat sports that was then named FENASCO under the leadership of well renown coach Carlo Diblasi. After a few months I received my instructor's diploma and I have since then coached many athletes, some of whom went onto becoming national and international champions. I have trained consistently for many years with world legendary kickboxing and Thai Boxing champions like Ramon Dekkers, Andre Mannhart and Rob Kaman, just to name a few. I have had the chance to coach in South Africa, in Dubai an
d now I do privately coach in Los Angeles, California, USA.
I am deeply passionate about coaching and sharing my passion and experience with others.

I was referred to Wahb after seeing the physical and lifestyle changes of a good friend. She lost 15 pounds and was so much happier as she was eating clean and having fun. I wanted to know her secret!

When I met Wahb he was friendly, kind, energetic, knowledgeable and I felt safe having him in my home. Our first session entailed evaluating my "body type", asking key questions about my goals, eating habits, any past injuries along with exercises/activities that I enjoy. Next we began our challenging workout. Usually I walk on the treadmill and never see results or feel soreness. Wahb made sure I was sweating and learning new exercises I had never seen before. Wahb was taking a lot of notes while he was showing me the correct form and explaining every exercise step-by-step. Every thing made sense.

After a challenging workout, Wahb customized a meal plan for me for the next 2 weeks. The meals were delish and 6 pounds melted away without starving.

My goal is to drop 30 pounds. I see Wahb 3 days per week and 1-2 days at the gym. I have lost 20 pounds in 8 weeks eating what I love and mixing our workouts from inside strength training and stretching to outdoor cardio. Mixing things up seems to be the key to Wahb's technique. He's a wealth of information.

Recently my husband has been commenting on how great I look and he has scheduled 6 sessions with Wahb. I recommend Wahb to anyone who wants to see results and work with someone passionate who really cares about your health and wellness. He is not your average gym trainer looking to take your money. I also love that Wahb is available anytime for questions. He's very attentive with his clients.

Expect to work hard and you'll see beautiful results!

· Sports Nutrition · In home
I must say that, for a man who is 50 of age, and always looking like he is in his mid 30"s, Wahb has figured it all out! What he taught me about nutrition is probably the most valuable thing when it comes to keeping healthy eating right, eating light, yet have an incredible amount of energy at all times. Nutrition with Wahb is made simple yet incredibly delicious, the ingredients are all natural and organic in the most part, mostly vegetables, greens and seeds, with a few selected meats and a lot of healthy herbs and spices. A basic nutrition that is rich with all the essential nutrients, and where all the superfluous food is almost totally discarded. If one wants to keep healthy, strong and young looking... Wahb is the guy!
Needless to add that he is so proficient in any type of physical exercise, combat sports, self defense and many various sports. His main focus is how to exercise to be fit maintaining a constant attention to improving health and well being.

· Self Defense · In studio
Wahb is honestly the best trainer I have ever worked with. His self defense methods are great, and I have never gotten a better workout with another trainer. I really love how patient and kind he is, while also being tough and kicking your butt at the same time! He makes you feel so comfortable, and doesn't make you discouraged at all. Rather, he encourages and inspires me to push my body to the limit, while maintaining safety, of course. I would recommend Wahb for anyone who wants to get fit, the healthy and safe way!!! :)

I am a professional photographer and has been shooting events for 10 years.

Depending on your level, I would customize a package for you and your needs. If you are a beginner and have never held a camera before, we would start from the basics (Learning composition, camera settings etc.). If you are intermediate, we would learn lighting techniques and conduct photoshoots.

About Drea
I have been in the creative industry since I was a child. I have been singing since I came out of the womb! And doing photography since high school. I am now in front and behind the camera as an actress/on camera host, and I am a professional photographer/videographer. I have behind the camera for companies such as VH1, MTV, Fuse TV, and the New York Post. In front of the camera, you have probably seen me in films such as Relativity Media's, "Act of Valor," "Baby Mama" (Opp Tina Fey/Sigourney Weaver), and Chris Rock's "I Think I Love my Wife." My experience both in front and behind the camera compliments each other as I understand what is needed for both positions. I try to keep my lessons informative and fun! -- Anything can be achieved if you take your time and you really want it.

I teach both in front and behind the camera :

My instructor Drea was a very was a very Patient and was prepared for our lessons. She sends an email and get a basic understanding of what your goals are what type of equipment you're planning on using and if she is unfamiliar with you for particular camera she does her research and is prepared to answer you any of your questions. I would recommend taking photography classes from her, I intend to continue taking lessons from Drea she is a treasure trove of knowledge.

Had a wonderful lesson with Tanna. My daughter is 14 and just got a new camera for her birthday. Tanna explained how to operate all the different functions to her. She was very patient with her. Tanna is a "must" if you have a new camera.

I lost the "joy" of photography with Irina. Technically, she knows her stuff, but her sensitivity and people skills are lacking. Barely an encouraging word. I felt degraded, nervous, and overall shitty by the end of the second lesson. Hoping for a better experience with another teacher.

Irina is amazing... I would never even think that I can create such beautiful photographies.
My father used to have a small photo lab at the loft and it was like a magic to me. I was always passionate to learn the beauty of photography however I never got the chance to.
I took few classes with Irina, she helped me to create incredible photos for my marketing campaign.
Irina is very professional and patient teacher, she has deep knowledge of photography and she makes it fun to learn.
I would recommend Irina to anyone who wants to learn photography.

Sergey taught me about everything I had questions about and also offered suggestions in helping me to better determine the best way to find the career path that is right for me. Rather than hard and fast lessons, it was an opportunity to spend time, one on one, with a professional and learn from his experiences what works and what doesn't.

I've been teaching Photography for 5+ years and my students have gone on to become professional photographers. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to use and know the camera functions and as time goes on you'll be able to take consistent photographs. I specialize in film and digital photography, typically use The Film Photography Handbook: Rediscovering Photography in 35mm, Medium, and Large Format books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: film or digital camera.
