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 ...

Bridget is an amazing piano teacher. My 9 year old daughter loved that she would help her with pop songs as well as the traditional lesson book. She also helped her with voice audition songs for her musical theater group. We highly recommend!

I have studied and practiced various forms of calligraphy and am very experienced in these styles of calligraphy: modern calligraphy, hand lettering, brush lettering, faux calligraphy, and beginner Copperplate calligraphy.

See photos in profile to view my work!

I specialize in teaching students the basics of calligraphy and building the necessary skills to develop their own personal style and create designs that they love! I also teach Ipad calligraphy using the Apple pencil. In addition, I teach students basics of scanning and digitizing their artwork to create designs such as prints, mugs, shirts, greeting cards, and more.

If you’re a beginner, you can expect to cover the basic strokes of calligraphy and receive practice sheets and resources to practice on your own and develop your personal style. I will also recommend best supplies to use to begin your calligraphy journey. You will soon be able to create beautiful calligraphy handwriting and designs on your own!

Ms. Esther is a great teacher! She was very patient and explained everything very clearly to me so that I could understand. I’ve had multiple piano teachers, but she was the first one that helped me really progress in playing piano and understand music theory. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a piano teacher.

Esther is passionate and knowledgeable about music and she does an incredible job of sharing that passion and knowledge with her students. She instructed my two young boys in a music class along with 6 other young students. She was always prepared and taught the class a variety of musical instruments and the history behind each of them. She instilled a love for music and instruments, into my boys. We were sad to have her move so far away but the knowledge she passed along to my boys, is priceless. We highly recommend Mrs. Esther!

Photography has been a lifelong passion for me. As my journey continues, I enjoy working with students and clients on making great images and helping them to achieve their artistic vision. I love to share the tips and tricks that I have learned along the way as both a professional photographer, but also as a teacher and as a student of light.

Experienced photographer that has worked professionally in many areas including travel, fine-art, news, and sports action. I have extensive darkroom experience in both B&W and color and have transitioned those skills to Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop in the digital post-processing world. Many of my images have been printed in various publications, on many websites, and in art gallery exhibits. I teach beginner to advanced students on how to take and process great images in private tutor sessions, group lessons, and on workshop field trips. I also custom print images, and scan and retouch/restore old photographs and negatives.

Nick was awesome. Helped me choose the proper camera settings to optimize conditions and maximize the quality of the image. Educated me on controlling settings for various light conditions and depth of field. Very helpful and well worth the drive. I will definitely call on him again to fine tune what I've learned once I have a chance to practice.

"Our son Christopher has been passionate about art and illustration his entire life but with traditional art instruction had become incredibly critical of his inability to duplicate exactly what other instructors required of him. In that regard meeting Tim Long has been one of the biggest blessings for us. Tim has helped to re-build a foundation for a lifelong relationship with art. His teaching methods are creative, engaging and unlike traditional art instructors rather than coax or box-in a child's imagination he provides the freedom to explore artistic expression based on our sons perception of art. Christopher has begun to experience illustration on a completely different level thanks to Tim, learning that trial and error and problem solving are part of the process and over the past few months it has been a joy to see the artist in him blossom again!"

Amber specifically targets the lessons and will help you reach your goals. I feel much more comfortable with charcoal. It feels good to have a finished product by the end of the lesson and to be proud of your work. Amber is talented also in teaching and has a very kind personality. I look forward to our lessons."
