I worked as a celebrity photographer for Splash News Agency ,something I consider to be top paying as far as street photography go. You must know your camera or could miss the money shot. After studying photography and receiving my BFA I found out that I had an imagination for conceptual photography and an eye for candid shots. I incorporate photography into my fine art paintings. I’ve traveled the world teaching kids to use there eyes .(The Venice Dream Team) and ( See it to be it) were two organizations I’ve worked with teaching photography. Nikon has been my choice of equipment since the 70s,yes I do know film ,darkrooms and papers as well as digital. My self I am a hands on learner and I believe a teacher should have patience and that people learn differently. I’m a great listener

Many people think they can't draw. I used to be one of them. Now, I know that everyone can draw, they just need to learn how to translate what they see into an image. We will start with contour, move into gesture, create the illusion of 3D form using value and color, composition and even create the illusion of space. We will use a variety of media including graphite, charcoal, pastels (oil and chalk) and even use paint. It's really lots of fun!

"Our first "lesson" was more of a "get to know each other" and "painting goals" lesson in my office.

Renata has a fantastic life story and based on our mutual first interview and philosophy comparison I believe she will be an excellent teacher to help me reach my artistic goals!

I look forward to much further work and discussion with her!"

"We are happy to have found Kai on TakeLessons. Kai works with our high school junior on her portfoilio and submissions for art competitions. The weekly online lessons involve setting goals, conceptualizing, live demonstrations and live coaching. We were initially worried about the effectiveness of online lessons but it has worked out perfectly so far in the second month of lessons. Our daughter has already shown improvement in her technique, and an enthusiasm for the lessons and for the pieces she’s working on with Kai."

He helped show me a side of art I was ignorant to. I think if you are really serious about art then Kai is the teacher for you. Hes also very friendly and an overall really cool guy!"
