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.
Desislava G.
Irina is amazing... I would never even think that I can create such beautiful photographies.
My father used to have a small photo lab at the loft and it was like a magic to me. I was always passionate to learn the beauty of photography however I never got the chance to.
I took few classes with Irina, she helped me to create incredible photos for my marketing campaign.
Irina is very professional and patient teacher, she has deep knowledge of photography and she makes it fun to learn.
I would recommend Irina to anyone who wants to learn photography.

These lessons will address principles of composition in photography, as well as learning the exposure principle to be able to apply correct camera settings.

A link to an interactive camera setting tool will be provided for the students to practice on their own time.

At the end of the lesson, students will receive an exposure cheat sheet. The list can be stored on a smartphone and consulted any time anywhere while shooting.

Minimum requirements for enrolling in this class:

1 - Because every lesson is customized to address each students' unique circumstances and needs in the field of photography, students must provide information on which camera they will be using PRIOR to purchasing lessons.
However, the photography lessons are NOT intended for going over the brand/model-specific camera manuals, nor for teaching where to find the brand/model-specific camera features. Student candidates are advised to research and study this type of information PRIOR to enrolling in the ...

Ana is absolutely amazing; I explained that I am a slow learner and she went through Photoshop steps with extremely clear instruction at my own pace, making sure I understand the concepts, not just memorizing steps. Also sent me links to instructional videos to prepare for my class. Among the best instructors I have ever had in my life.

Very helpful and I learned a lot during my first lesson in Photoshop.

She knows so much about photography! It was great learning from her.

very interactive and understanding

Jonathan is without a doubt a talented professional photographer / artist. Yet he has adapted himself to working with a novice trying to navigate a new digital camera before a big Patagonia vacation of a lifetime. Whether you are a beginner like I am or a professional photographer looking to improve your game, Jonathan will exceed your expectations. I like his patient and calm approach to my questions and after only two lessons I have already improved so much.
Jeff W.
I have learned a lot from Jonathan so far. He has been very helpful in helping me understand PhotoShop and Lightroom. I would highly recommend him.
