If you’re interested in learning photography – congratulations! Photography is a fun, practical hobby as well as an exciting career. Although learning photography does take a little patience, the rewards are certainly worth it. So, let’s start with the benefits of why you should learn photography.
- The ability to record special events like a child’s birthday, graduation or the family’s vacations with clear, focused well composed photographs.
- Never missing a picture of a special moment because you were searching for the right button or dial.
- Taking photos that you and your loved ones will enjoy displaying on your wall. By capturing your special memories in pictures, you can have a way to document and pass on these memories to future generations.
- Communicating through your photographs. A picture really is worth a thousand words! You can capture an expression that says it all. Or as we've seen in magazines like Time and National Geographic, you can shoot photographs ...

I'm Sandra. I've worked with hundreds of photographers and designers – from beginners to the best in the business – and in print, online and video formats. I've helped them find their unique route to achieve their potential. I'm quick, honest, easy to understand. I inspire you, I show you steps and help you grow. I can certainly help with technical issues but my focus is on helping you see more – in your images, in your own ability ad in what is possible for you. In teaching college classes, my main student comment is consistent: "I will never look at anything the same way again."
If you just want to learn software programs or camera operation, go elsewhere. But if you want to learn to SEE and become a true photographer, Sandra is the coach to work with. Although software and hardware are certainly part of our discussions, software and cameras don't make pictures – you, your
I had the great opportunity to work with Sandra. As my photo coach and editor, her insightful suggestions to the way I was approaching my work helped me sharpen my photographic skills and storytelling. Working with Sandra was all about honing my strengths as a photographer but also opening my eyes to other possibilities of storytelling and the craft of photography that helped me overcome my inexperience when creating a photograph.
While working with hundreds of photographers and their images, Sandra has honed an acute ability to spot the potential in you and your pictures. At the same time, she can clearly guide you on how to improve your vision and elevate your photography in a fun, friendly and nonjudgmental way.

We have been working on building up foundational skills and their sequence, which gives me clear understanding on what each small step means in the long term. Based on my interest and what I knew and didn’t know, Jessica would design each lesson with a specific focus in mind, usually around practicing a certain technique. Her homework (I ask for homework since I draw slowly) also reinforces those learnings. I feel more confident with each lesson, and my progress is noticeable.
Also, she is incredibly encouraging, patient, and generous. I never feel judged or self-conscious practicing techniques in front of her (often clumsily) or showing her my new drawings. She always gives thorough feedback and encouraging words. Overall, she gives me confidence on my journey, and that is much needed for an adult student who didn’t have the chance to start when younger. Best teacher ever!"
