I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!

Great start to first lesson
Kathryn (Royal)
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.
Desislava G.
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.

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 ...

Do you want to paint like Rembrandt? Do you want to be the next Van Gogh? Or maybe you want to be able to paint a portrait of your family dog! Well, these are the online classes for you! My name is Timothy and I have been oil painting for 25 years. I enjoy sharing my art experience with others, no matter what age, no matter where you are beginning. I can begin with the simplest subject matter in painting, and advance you into more advanced subject matter such as portraiture and painting from life. My training is a balance of self taught instruction and my art teacher, John Gordon, the designer of the Green Bay Packers logo!
What are you waiting for? Now is the time to cultivate your inner artist and use your artistic talents like never before. Contact me and let’s get the ball rolling.

About Timothy

I am a fun-loving art teacher who is looking for art students of all ages who want to learn, learn, learn!

Omar was great overall, he was able to point out small details about sketching that I never thought about like how I should be looking at the object that I am sketching more than my picture itself. Very affordable too! I will be using him more in the near future.
Ria
I am the creative director at TrueBlue in Chattanooga, TN. I had the pleasure of having Omar on staff as a designer/illustrator. He's an extremely talented illustrator with a diversified style palate and a great designer–wrapped in one package. It's great to have a designer that can illustrate as well as he can design. Omar was eager to learn new things and embraced whatever challenge set before him. I highly recommend Omar's talent and abilities.
Jeremy
Omar is an excellent teacher and artist. He is also very patient. Highly recommended!

"Thanks a whole bunch, Irina Logra! Everything about your approach oozes professionalism, practice, preparation and perfection in all respects and purposes!!! I was so fortunate to become your student this summer during my holidays in LA, it was the best choice of a tutor I could have ever made, which did open the door to new knowledge and the way to the world of photography. Appreciate so much your tailoring those precious and exciting classes to my practical need in photography for marketing aimed at marketing business business. Your tips in both subtleties and grand scale of composition are priceless. As a beginning photographer I greatly admire your talent of an artist and genuine utmost desire and ability to teach people to see, value, grasp captivating beauty of this world! After your course success in my career just got a boost!
If you don't want to waste you time and money for boring theory and dragged out session but want to plunge into practice with applicable pieces of advice meeting your specific purposes, I highly recommend you Irina Logra as photography tutor who will eventually become your friend and guide who is always in touch!"

"Think about it this way. Sandra has had dinner with Ansel Adams. She's worked in the White House three times as a picture editor. She was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize. She loves photography and she loves to look at photographs. And most importantly she loves to work with photographers regardless of their "level". You will learn about your photographs. You will learn about yourself. But don't be intimidated by her background. She is NOT one of those photography guru experts who try to motivate by tearing you down. She builds on where you are as a photographer. Instead of telling you that a photograph is no good she might tell you that "you should be doing more of this type of photograph." Whatever it costs to learn from Sandra is cheap. What you will learn is priceless."
