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 am currently working in the industry as a freelance photographer as well as a retail staff photographer. I have been photographing for 6+ years now. My focus is people! Portraiture I focus on includes weddings, headshots, lifestyle, fashion, and photojournalism/documentary. My main love is storytelling. I believe if you have a medium such as photography, storytelling is not only fitting - but also necessary. I will teach you how to create a story with lighting, techniques, angles, posing, and context. We will be able to focus on our sitter and bring out the most authentic imagery that fits them and you as an artist.

About Tarin

Tarin is an amazing teacher. Having never done anything related to photography she taught me how to use a camera and adjust the settings correctly very quickly. She is very professional and knowledgeable.

Had my first lesson last night to learn about night photography. I bought myself a fancy camera (Sony A7R4) and I had no idea how to use it or what any of the buttons did other than turning it on and having it set to auto. I didn’t know the first thing about photography other than point and shoot. Irina immediately had me change my camera to manual and told me to not use auto. I loved that! Irina also told me the lesson was going to be a lot of information for a beginner such as myself wanting to learn about my photography first. Yes, it was a lot to take in but, I can say that I left my lesson with Irina feeling way more confident about how to use my camera properly and I can’t wait to have additional lessons to learn more. Now I know the 3 basic settings of Shutter, Aperture and ISO and how they affect your shots and Irina even put together a booklet for me that explains the basics of photography that includes the need to know information on how to change settings depending on photography location, lighting time of day, desired effects etc. Fantastic job Irina and I can’t wait to learn more with additional lessons.

Great start to first lesson
Kathryn (Royal)
I lost the "joy" of photography with Irina. Technically, she knows her stuff, but her sensitivity and people skills are lacking. Barely an encouraging word. I felt degraded, nervous, and overall shitty by the end of the second lesson. Hoping for a better experience with another teacher.

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!

I've been teaching Photography for 5+ years and my students have gone on to become professional photographers. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to use and know the camera functions and as time goes on you'll be able to take consistent photographs. I specialize in film and digital photography, typically use The Film Photography Handbook: Rediscovering Photography in 35mm, Medium, and Large Format books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: film or digital camera.
