Jonathan is without a doubt a talented professional photographer / artist. Yet he has adapted himself to working with a novice trying to navigate a new digital camera before a big Patagonia vacation of a lifetime. Whether you are a beginner like I am or a professional photographer looking to improve your game, Jonathan will exceed your expectations. I like his patient and calm approach to my questions and after only two lessons I have already improved so much.
Jeff W.
I have learned a lot from Jonathan so far. He has been very helpful in helping me understand PhotoShop and Lightroom. I would highly recommend him.

Preston is a very nice coach. I was a beginner with zero experience before. After five lessons, I gained solid basic skills and feel more comfortable to rally. I feel growing by leaps and bounces.

He is very sharp about identifying the problem and then training accordingly. He is also kind and very patient to guide

I can teach you how to make money with Calligraphy and Hand Lettering.

I start out with nomenclature, then I go into the basics of composition, flourishes, tracking, and anatomy. Then I get into skeletal stroke order for Serif, Sans Serif and Script (focusing on whichever one the student wants), and I provide more in depth training in each specific style of interest.

I also can teach you hand lettering which is different from Calligraphy in that the rules are much looser and it is very stylized, and is a lot more fun.

"My first class with Moataz was nothing short of amazing. He is a walking pillar of information on the subject matter, but never in a arrogant manner. He was thorough in his explanation; which helped me to walk away more knowledgeable.
We had a few technical hiccups but he didn't miss a beat.
I definitely intend to follow up with more classes with him in the near future.
Thanks, Moataz!"

My two daughters aged 7 and 9 have been having lessons with Jessica for a couple of months and she has done such an excellent job of catering to their very different personalities and preferred learning styles. She is so patient and calm. She has taught them various techniques, including how to work with charcoal, and they have both improved so much in such a short time. My kids really look forward to their lesson every time, and carry on with their projects when the lesson is over. I highly recommend her!"
