This class was so delightful. We met at a beautiful beach and Keffie was great. I came away with a treasured memory, I would highly recommend this to the young and old.

Deron is wonderful with my 7 year old granddaughter. Her parents are in the process of divorcing and she is having a hard time with it emotionally. Deron is patient and kind and allows her to direct the lesson with his guidance. She loves drawing and she really looks forward to her her lesson time with Deron.

Deron is an absolute joy to work with. My dude ran off immediately after the lesson to draw some more. Now that's a positive review. :)
Nancy
It was great! Deron had me pick out a subject and send him the image ahead of time. He had it printed out and ready to go when I got there, along with the paint colors, brushes and everything. Very impressed with his organization. He went at just the right speed for me and we actually made good progress. I'm looking forward to the next lesson!

Due to my current location, I am constantly exposed to a wide variety of art and art styles- especially cartoons. I myself have a degree in Art History, a minor in Studio Art (drawing) and formal teaching experience. I also have a good deal of knowledge about cartooning and life drawing due to several classes I took in college.

Take your photos from amateur to pro with the secrets on improving composition, exposure (including aperture, shutter speed and ISO), choosing the right lens for the subject, lighting (including speedlight flashes, strobes and natural light), the importance of post processing, Photoshop and photo organization and more!

I have worked as an industry professional photographing a variety of clients from families to Hollywood celebrities. Now I'm finding more fulfillment teaching these high-level industry skills to everyone.

About Jacob

Hi there and thank you for considering me as your personal mentor in the world of digital artistry. A long time ago this world was just a hobby for me as well, and I hope to help you develop your skill set into something much more. I have over a decade of exposure to the rapidly-adapting profession

Very patient. We went through some technical issues that were a struggle for me and Jacob was very helpful and persistent in getting to solutions.
Tehila
I had a great experience with Jacob as an instructor. He is knowledgeable and his advice was relevant and to the point. He invested time to critique my work and even sent detailed notes. Highly recommend!
Jenn
I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Jacob. My husband gave them to me as a birthday present and it was tons of fun. Jacob was able to answer all of my nitty gritty questions, as well as general tips on improving my skills. The lessons were enjoyable and I learned tons. I've gone from shooting in complete auto mode, because I didn't know how to do anything different, to shooting in aperture priority mode with much better results. My Christmas portrait of my kids will be much better this year thanks to these lessons. If you're looking for an affordable way to improve this is a great option because you'll learn a lot in just a few one-on-one sessions. Jacob was also very flexible in working with me on the schedule for the lessons. Thanks Jacob!

Mehdi helped me identify my blocks and challenges in making new relationships. The effects of his training sessions on my life was extraordinary. I gained self-confidence thanks to his efforts and learned simple but practical communication skill.

Mehdi always had his own creative ways to teach me. ]n the first steps he shows you how to see correctly in order to recognize your own weak points. He tried to relieve my stress and distrust in learning. I had the anatomy sessions with him and he helped me the most to grow smoothly. Thank u for your patience :D
