Teaching since 2005
I have been teaching professionally for more than 10 years. I can teach a total beginner and I guarantee a profound change in terms of his skill level after 2 months of an attentive following of my instructions. I like to watch the progress of my student and this is what brings me the best satisfaction in my occupation.
I think that every human being is unique with his own unique way of thinking and perception of common things. When teaching, I believe in dialogue, for this reason, I never record my lessons on video, except for the promotional needs. I like to meet new students, to understand their way of thinking and to invent the individual teaching approach or methodology for each one of them.
I am an academically trained professional artist with the overall working experience of about 20 years and an impressive record of exhibitions (two of them are museum one-man shows) in the USA and abroad. I am teaching in three languages: ENGLISH, HEBREW and RUSSIAN, representational, realist,
Highly knowledgeable and very attentive to the student's needs.

I was fortunate enough to participate in one of his workshops almost a year back. This review is based on the amazing experience during the workshop and highly beneficial interactions with him beyond that.
The workshop itself was wonderful. Jonathan made sure that every participant understood exactly what he was talking about on a one on one basis. ‘Patience’ - the virtue great photographers are known for was on display live. There were beginners, intermediate and professional level photographers and each of them learned a lot from Jonathan and from each other. The biggest impact was the photography community feeling Jonathan created in us and all of us interacts with each other even after a year and learn together via social media groups.
As part of the conference, there was a street photography session where we interacted with strangers and got their photographs. It was a great experience. Being new to Minneapolis and from a different culture and upbringing, this experience helped me to gain a lot of confidence and finally I was able to come out of my shell.
The best part about Jonathan is, he helps me out so much with my photography even months after the workshop. Also, he provides the opportunity to assist during photo shoots which help me a lot to learn just by observing. It really really helps me improve my photography knowledge and experience.
I would definitely recommend Jonathan to anyone who is looking to get into the photography world. He is such a great teacher who will inspire and be with you throughout your journey!!"
