It was clear right away that Julie is very professional and highly experienced. I like how she started off with solid foundational work habits and methodologies to kick off my photography learning experience.

I've taken two online photography lessons with Julie so far and I have learned more in those two lessons than in all the group online courses I have taken in the past. Julie explains things very well and is very willing to answer any questions I may have. I am excited to continue my lessons with her!

"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!"
