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 Professional, and find great reward in sharing my experience and knowledge with my students.

When the "aha" light goes on, it's truly a wonderful moment for me, and encourages me to drive my students to build towards more of those moments as students, and then ultimately, for themselves as they learn to grow for themselves.

About Sam
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Since I schedule classes through other outlets my availability varies. I've marked availability only to make my profile visible to potential students so, the availability you see is not my actual availability. Since my availability is never fixed and I'd like to avoid disappointing booking experiences, please contact me at 202-559-7981 to check my availability. If we can confirm a meeting time, I'll mark that availability on the Take Lessons site and you can book and confirm our meeting through there.

Thank you for considering me in your search for photography instruction.

It doesn't matter whether you use a film or digital camera. The camera is a tool that you use to create photographs.

During your photography class with me you’ll learn to use your camera and you’ll learn the skills that you need to
use your camera effectively and with confidence.

If you’re just getting started or a more advanced photographer, I offer a variety of photography courses that are geared toward a wide range of skill levels and interests.

My approach to teaching has been shaped by my photography teachers and by my experience working as a professional photographer. While I learned a lot about the craft of photography from good teachers, I learned to be a photographer by using my camera and mindfully applying what I learned from my teachers during the process of creating a photograph.

I think the best way to learn something is to learn by doing it and I make sure that we have plenty of time to practice what we cover during our time together in class. If you’re in a multi-week class, you’ll get homework too. Homework aimed at getting you to utilize the lessons we cover in class so you can create photographs that are uniquely your own.

As a participant in my photography classes you’ll get a good understanding of the material being presented in addition to hands on practical experience. What you won’t get are my judgments about your work, instead you’ll be encouraged to formulate your own opinions about your work and then I’ll offer you guidance based on your personal goals in photography.

Whether you are using a film SLR, a digital SLR (DSLR ), or another type of camera, I’ll help you to be the best photographer that you can be.

Courses are offered in Washington, DC or online. Private instruction and custom group workshops are also available.

About David
I have a bachelors degree in printmaking and oil painting and spent some time in Florence, Italy studying painting and drawing by studying the High Renaissance masters. Currently I draw and paint in my spare time. I love teaching art as a way to connect with other artist and creative people who like talking about and creating art.

Through introducing or reviewing the fundamental principles in art and applying those to the lessons and exercises I assign for after class hours, you’ll see yourself improve week after week and gain more confidence in your artistic ability. I create a custom syllabus for you to review and work in things you’d like to try, certain mediums or subject matter to make it more appealing to you.

Making art should be fun and restorative! I’m very flexible in meeting your needs and speed at which you want to learn.

The third lesson was pretty helpful. His approach towards drawing is different than what I am used to, but also very beneficial.

David did a good job breaking down how to draw a candle using the grid method. The concept he taught me is really easy to apply and helped me complete my first assignment. He is a good instructor.

About Roya
My name is Roya. I am a professional artist and educator. It would be my pleasure to teach you painting and drawing. Over the last 10 years, I have taught painting and drawing in universities and colleges. I have a M.F.A degree in painting and drawing. You will learn painting and drawing like a university's student in my studio. My teaching philosophy focuses on laying a strong foundation with technique and growing from that foundation towards theory and concept. I equip my students with strong technical skills that emphasize art elements, art composition, color theory, and a variety of mediums techniques. My goal at the beginning stage is to provide students with enough skills to begin making art that deserves critical discussion. I teach in my studio at my home, Richardson, TX 75082. Please send me a message if you have any other quest

I'm not naturally coordinated in dancing much less for paired dancing, for that reason I was apprehensive and anxious about bachata dance lessons with kimmy. At the end of the first lesson I left feeling having learnt new moves and confident about using them. Kimmy is skilled and knowledgeable about teaching dance because the pace is not rushed, she provides appropriate cues and thoughtful commendations!

I highly recommend Kimmy! She is a great teacher; she was patient, understanding, and comes prepared. I completed my first dance sessions with Kimmy and came out with a better understanding of how to dance. She instills confidence with her teaching and cares that her student gets the most out of every class.

About Isabela
I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested student who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).

I love interacting with people and pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.

I be
lieve in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.

I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration.

I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.

Grazie mille, Isabella, for another great lesson. Her deep knowledge of Italian, patience, and teaching style is clearly helping me with pronunciation and common phrases, and is pushing my Italian skills to the next level.

I will first explain the creative variables in photography, aperture, shutter speed, focal length and so forth. Then I will show you how your camera allows you to control those creative variables. You learn to boss the camera around and have a great deal of fun. I have taught all ages, along with creating a robust teaching website that you can use for free.
