About Fabio
I'm a published author on photography and video production magazines and honored professor at major Brazil universities, teaching video production. My passion for teaching and tutoring involves the Brazilian Portuguese and Technology. I lived in Rio de Janeiro for more than 30 years and worked with several companies on translation projects for the Brazilian market. I'm sure I'll be able to offer you the best tutoring on Portuguese for business and travel, and everything you need to be an excellent photographer and videographer.

I'm a Mac specialist since 2000, with daily use of editing software such Lightroom since it's first version.

Being a photographer since 14, video production was a natural parallel art, which I embraced in 1980.

I really know how to transmit all knowledge I have, which is based on decades of work (photo an
d video), and years living in Brazil. I'm very didactic and I invite you to have the best learning experience taught by a passionate professional.

Fabio is an awesome teacher! He is very knowledgeable but very easy to to talk to and explains things in a way that makes sense to me. I am really enjoying my classes so far and have already learned quite a bit (who knew there was more to photography than just point and shoot? lol). If you are looking to invest in your career or education, you will not regret giving his classes a try.

About Amber
I am a professional freelance artist, and owner of Leola Studios. I have been doing custom artwork for over 15 years, and have several contract jobs with businesses on my resume. I have an Associates Degree in Fine Arts/Animation from Academy of Art University.

I specialize in photo realism, and 90% of the private commissions I get are portraits. However, I work in a broad range of styles and mediums, from line work to abstract to sketch, with charcoal to paint to clay. I love expanding my knowledge and trying new things, but above all I love creating!! I feel that imagination and expression through art/music/literature are crucial to a person's development, and this is something I pass on to my daughters, and frequently fundraise for, in an attempt to keep art programs in our schools.

I love meeting new people and sharing my knowledg
e, so after having so many people ask me to show them how to draw, I began teaching. I've taught one on one, and classes large in size. I have also taught young children, up to age 98! I am very patient and don't mind a slew of questions! I want to help students become the best at their craft.

Art is my passion and so important in our world, with proven benefits! I'd like to think with teaching, I'm helping to keep it alive, even if just in my small way.

I have known Amber many years and can attest to her artistic capabilities. I have sat in on two of her painting classes; she was great at walking us through the piece step-by-step, and was very patient with all our questions. She laughed with us and made it fun! I would recommend her to anyone and look forward to learning from her again!

Amber taught me how to do a painting of a snow man so I can give to my mom for Christmas and she did a wonderful job teaching to where I can understand. And it turned out great.

About Jen
Hello!

MY NAME IS Jen
I've been an artist for as far back as I can remember, and have been perfecting my technique every step of the way. For me, each piece created is a learning experience. I grew up watching Bob Ross paint his pine trees and effortless mountains, all the while instilling in me that there are no mistakes in art, only happy accidents. I was also greatly inspired by a woman named Nan, that I took private lessons from in New Hampshire, in 1995. She encouraged me to think outside the box of only shading with black, always had incense burning, and gave us dried apricots to snack on. She is also a big reason why I've decided to explore the world of teaching private lessons myself; I'd love to be someone else's "Nan" one day.

I currently volunteer teaching group art classes once a week in Marietta. It's an amazing
community center for those in recovery from addiction.

I earned a 2 year certificate from Chattahoochee Technical College for Digital and Multimedia design in 2014. I've also been studying German for about a year and a half. I would love to travel there one day and paint Plein Air (and if you don't know what that is, I'll teach you!)

I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your journey to becoming a better artist!

About Jonathan
I am a professional photographer specializing in photojournalism, portrait, food, and wedding photography. I graduated from UCLA and have worked professionally in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York.

Students can expect to improve week to week in their photography skills. Every photographer has a unique vision; I teach students the technical and real-world approaches to bring that vision to life. I can help any student to photograph with confidence and success.

I teach photography students of all different ages and experience levels. I have 15 years of professional experience. I can teach students to select the right camera settings for any situation and compose their photos for the highest visual interest.

As a professional photographer, I frequently travel to New York and San Francisco for photo shoots. I have photographed eve
nts with Michelle Obama and Nancy Reagan. I've worked with high-end restaurants such as Blue Hill at Stone Barns for their food photography. I've photographed alongside firefighters battling wildfires in Southern California. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, creative photographers.

My personal passion is photographing people, but I firmly believe that a great foundation is essential to any and every photographic field. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better photographer!
