Having graduated in photography in 2011, I am a professional wildlife photographer, constantly on the move from one to the next great wildlife location, taking pictures and writing articles. In my down time, I love to teach others the basics of photography including theory, history, equipment (DSLR, mirrorless), lighting, posing, post-processing workflow, etc. If you are interested in a career in photography, I can also give you tips on how to get published, find clients, etc.

Prior to focusing on wildlife and nature photography, I photographed portraits (humans, pets) and weddings.

Jorn taught me how to understand all the buttons on my camera but more importantly, how I really don't need most of them! I feel confident taking pictures of my children and even editing them on my tablet. Thanks!

Jorn helped me understand how to use my Nikon camera and become a better photographer. He is a patient and understanding teacher. I love how he travels around in areas where there are lots of wildlife and takes wonderful pictures.

Gesture, Expression and Experiment are my tools. I combination with an education in materials and the willingness to keep playing we end up confidently creating image. It is impossible to get anything done in an hour so try to find a way to book a longer time. Materials are somewhat included as I always have things but do contribute with art supplies, paper, found things. It's not necessary to spend a lot of money at the art supply store, just keep your eyes open at garage sales, etc and your store of materials will accumulate.

Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.

"Mark OneWolf is a phenomenal teacher. Great photographers are not always great teachers, but here is a person who is both. I started with basics of not understanding much about photography beyond auto mode or about other modes on my camera, but he expertly guided me through the process of learning more about both. He is incredibly encouraging and responsive to questions, and is a kind an generous teacher.

I am now at the next level of learning about photo editing, and again, Mark goes the extra distance to research how we can more easily share images to discuss the editing process.

Do not let the online format stop you. Mark's style is very hands on.

He has exceeded all my expectations for an online class. He is an outstanding, and very patient, diligent and resourceful teacher. I highly recommend Mark and am looking forward to continued lessons with him."
