Private Photography Teacher

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.

Online Photography Teacher

Hello, my name is Brandie and I specialize in teaching beginner/intermediate photography. I enjoy teaching this subject to those new to the field or those that want to further their hobby. My focus is on fine art photography so I am well rounded in the use of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom for post-processing. Photography is an art form and can be utilized in countless ways. Once you master the basics, you can walk away with the confidence to photograph in any setting.

Color, composition, camera settings and of course post processing. I am also highly skilled in photomanipulation and composite work if that is an area you'd like to work on. Photography should be fun, challenging and rewarding, we can bring all three to the classroom to reach your full potential.

About Brandie

I have been a professional photographer for over 9 years and graduated with a degree in photography in 2012. I have a passion for what I do and love to share all the knowledge and experiences I've had over the years. I have a studio west of Chicago that can be used to demonstrate lighting and tech

If you have one, I will show you how to use a manual camera (digital or film). Even if you only use fully automatic cameras, this will help you understand how your pictures turn out. Even if you only use your iPhone or mobile phone, I can help you get better pictures.

30 Years experience. Areas: Editorial - Magazine, Photojournalism, News - Covers, Features, Lifestyle, Concert, Photo/Digital Illustration. Commercial, VIP, Celebrity, Red Carpet, Real Estate, Event.

I can cover just the photo/camera end for you. And, or, can teach you the digital computer skills you need to bring you images to the next level.

I will teach you how to reveal your own photographic "eye". That is, now to use the camera as an extension of your expression, how to take what you see, and put inside a frame.

I teach photography concepts from the art form, and from basic through advanced technical and aesthetic.

You will learn how a camera lens is much much more than just a zoom closer/farther tool for your scene. The lens you choose is vital towards helping you achieve the vision you are bringing to your work. Camera exposure is similar.

I will also teach you how to "see" your scene or subject as "values" of shades of black, white, and the grays between. This ...

About Richard

I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love. Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Profession

Richard is so patient and knowledgeable. I am very happy with our lessons. Because of my background with classical guitar he wondered if the fact that he doesn't read music and I am renewing my mind back into it would not be a good teaching set-up. Not at all. I now have an electric guitar and the five years spent playing classical, now fifteen years ago, did not give me a good foundation for understanding music theory unfortunately. I have a genre I had already picked out fingerstyle electric and now with some thinking my way through the basics I did have I still need to learn just basic strumming etc. I understand what he is referring to in music so we still speak in the same key. Also and lastly my daughter has a severe seizure/dementia disorder that is very unpredictable and our caregiver's mom just passed away so there will be times when I just can't do a week/day. He has been very understanding. I am smiling from my soul because music is my healing path for difficult stuff I couldn't pay any doctor/therapist to even call me back for. Thank you so much for your assistance. Sincerely Teresa

Richard got me off to a great start with my new camera.

"Mark OneWolf is a phenomenal teacher. Great photographers are not always great teachers, but here is a person who is both. I started with basics of not understanding much about photography beyond auto mode or about other modes on my camera, but he expertly guided me through the process of learning more about both. He is incredibly encouraging and responsive to questions, and is a kind an generous teacher.

I am now at the next level of learning about photo editing, and again, Mark goes the extra distance to research how we can more easily share images to discuss the editing process.

Do not let the online format stop you. Mark's style is very hands on.

He has exceeded all my expectations for an online class. He is an outstanding, and very patient, diligent and resourceful teacher. I highly recommend Mark and am looking forward to continued lessons with him."

"Julie was able to focus (pun intended) on my specific photographic needs and interests--in this case with lessons in depth of field, composition/cropping, lighting, and special effects (such as applying a brushstroke effect to make the result look more like a painting, or darkening the edges of a photo to better emphasize the center) for close-up subjects like leaves, flowers, and tree trunks, as well as landscapes. I learned so very much that I can apply to both my existing raw photos as well as my future photographic efforts. I am truly WOWED!"
