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.

Jonathan is a really good instructor. He has helped me out a lot so far with the different software applications to do with photography. I’m still learning, but every lesson I get more invaluable information from him.
I would highly recommend him.

Hello fellow students!

My name is Anabel, I am a professional photographer in Los Angeles, California. I photograph a variety of subjects, from pets to Grammy-nominated musicians, and everything in-between! I am well versed in studio photography and on-location outdoor work, and can help you learn to make the most of any location and subject matter.

Being self-taught, I believe that I have an entirely different approach to education; one that sits well with aspiring photographers, especially those that are disappointed in traditional (as in, college and university) photographic education. My teaching philosophy revolves around educating on the minimum and maximum capabilities of your gear and giving students all of the fundamental tools to create whatever image they have in their head (hence my lack of a photographic ‘niche’ in my work. When your camera becomes an extension of your arm, your subject pool is limitless).

In 2015, I had officially made my photography classes ...

I was getting ready for a trip with my friends to tour all over in Russia this Summer and I found Sergey and he taught me a great deal of what I will need to communicate enough to get a round in Russia...
He is an excellent teacher Thank you Sergey for your great help in teaching me I know this will be a trip to remember thanks to you...
Patti C.
Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund
Janet T.
when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

"I signed up for sculpture lessons from Jenny last July. She was very good in understanding my need. I wanted to improve my technique in order to apply to a specialty fine art school. I am also learning how to do armature and set up my pieces. this is not like ceramics. Its different. Italian style. You work with plaster and other stuff."

"I have always felt like I had a creative impulse I needed to express, but felt like I needed some solidified skills to be able to begin. I felt nervous about starting to learn something new at my age, but from the first conversation I had with Jessica, I knew I would feel absolutely at ease learning with her. Jessica is both an experienced educator and a truly inspired artist. One of the first things she taught me was how to look at the world around me differently and in a more open way that allowed me to translate that to paper. It was exhilarating. Jessica is absolutely lovely, knowledgeable and provides tangible instructions that are showing their effect on paper! I am so thrilled with the work I am creating with her continued instruction. I cannot more highly reccommend studying with Jessica!"
