Private Photography Teacher

I approach photography instruction from two perspectives. First, the elements of design and content: that's meaning and substance in photographs from an artist's perspective. We'll explore how a photographer captures the "decisive moment." This'll include formal considerations like composition, color, viewpoint/perspective, atmosphere etc.

The other perspective involves technical considerations such as lighting, focus and focal length, staging and more. Good photography is all about observation and editing in the camera. Post production is also part of the study.

Learn from a photographer who began as an artist and became a commercial photographer shooting sports stars like Tiger Woods and TV personalities such as George Stephanopoulos.

About Donna

I tailor my teaching to the level of each student. Instruction will be fun and exciting. With an education that's included six years in art school, my teaching style is creative and intuitive yet provides the structure needed to grasp concepts quickly. I gear all study to achieving a level of m

My photography lessons would be unique in the sense that I would cater to your own experiences and resources that you have available to pursue photography. Whatever camera you have, whatever software, I would teach the basics behind photography and encourage the student to take photos during and after our lesson.

I am a freelance photographer. My interest in photography started in middle school and has now grown to a hobby of mine. I have taken graduation, maternity, and portrait photographs of both people I know and people who found me through recommendations. I taught myself photography since middle scho

Online Photography Teacher

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."

About Sandra

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

There are many people out there that can teach you to snap a picture, but Sandra will help you learn the process of how to create a photograph. That is her strength, along with a gentle touch and her vast experience of working with some of the best photographers in the business. I strongly recommend you reach out to her if you wish to become a better photographer.

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.

If your pictures aren’t packin’ the impact you thought (or hoped for) when you pressed the shutter, or, if you can’t figure out how to move to the next level, contact Sandra. I did. And, working with her is a very special and helpful experience.
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.
Fulton
Think about it this way. Sandra has had dinner with Ansel Adams. She's worked in the White House three times as a picture editor. She was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize. She loves photography and she loves to look at photographs. And most importantly she loves to work with photographers regardless of their "level". You will learn about your photographs. You will learn about yourself. But don't be intimidated by her background. She is NOT one of those photography guru experts who try to motivate by tearing you down. She builds on where you are as a photographer. Instead of telling you that a photograph is no good she might tell you that "you should be doing more of this type of photograph." Whatever it costs to learn from Sandra is cheap. What you will learn is priceless.

Online Photography Teacher

30 Years experience. Areas: Editorial - Magazine, Photojournalism, News - Covers, Features, Lifestyle, Concert, Photo/Digital Illustration. Commercial, VIP, Celebrity, Red Carpet, Real Estate, Event.

I can cover just the photo/camera end for you. And, or, can teach you the digital computer skills you need to bring you images to the next level.

I will teach you how to reveal your own photographic "eye". That is, now to use the camera as an extension of your expression, how to take what you see, and put inside a frame.

I teach photography concepts from the art form, and from basic through advanced technical and aesthetic.

You will learn how a camera lens is much much more than just a zoom closer/farther tool for your scene. The lens you choose is vital towards helping you achieve the vision you are bringing to your work. Camera exposure is similar.

I will also teach you how to "see" your scene or subject as "values" of shades of black, white, and the grays between. This ...

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 Profession

Richard is so patient and knowledgeable. I am very happy with our lessons. Because of my background with classical guitar he wondered if the fact that he doesn't read music and I am renewing my mind back into it would not be a good teaching set-up. Not at all. I now have an electric guitar and the five years spent playing classical, now fifteen years ago, did not give me a good foundation for understanding music theory unfortunately. I have a genre I had already picked out fingerstyle electric and now with some thinking my way through the basics I did have I still need to learn just basic strumming etc. I understand what he is referring to in music so we still speak in the same key. Also and lastly my daughter has a severe seizure/dementia disorder that is very unpredictable and our caregiver's mom just passed away so there will be times when I just can't do a week/day. He has been very understanding. I am smiling from my soul because music is my healing path for difficult stuff I couldn't pay any doctor/therapist to even call me back for. Thank you so much for your assistance. Sincerely Teresa

"My family purchased photography lessons with Julie for me as a birthday present and I had a fantastic experience. Since I am mostly interested in bird and wildlife photography, Julie was kind enough to meet me at a local birding "hotspot" in Irvine and in an hour my skills improved tremendously with her assistance. No more over/underexposed shots, MUCH better detail in my photos and I learned to read and utilize a histogram properly. Highly, highly recommend.

Note: This site does not have an option for "outside location" so I was forced to select "Teacher's Location", but Julie was willing to meet me at a location I proposed."
