First thing I do before first day of class is send out an enthusiastic email and call shortly after. Briefly discussing and establishing the learning goals for the course based on the visual literacy,technical,and intellectual competencies the students should achieve by the end of a period is ideal for me to design the course or update an existing course for the student's desired outcomes. The syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during class.
I am from a musical and visual arts family from Brazil and my background ranges from classical, pop, rock and a jazz solo and group arrangements. I thrive in creating a friendly learning experience for each of my students that is personalized to their needs no matter the age or background. I believe You got to be versatile with people's learning style and capabilities so that they may enjoy learning to make music and art.

About Jonathan "JC"
Hello! Bonjour! I believe the best way to teach is to make it simple and fun! I am patient and dedicated to your success. -------- QUALITY FIRST -------- Everybody wants the best. I believe quality is the most important. I also believe each person is unique, therefore each student should have tailored lessons. -------- HAPPY TEACHING -------- Teaching should be a positive and fun experience. I believe in a personalized and genuine approach. In my experience the benefits are enormous: we save a lot of time, energy, and since it is way more suited to the student, we are more efficient = happy! Hopefully Wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.
-------- PHOTOGRAPHY -------- Photography has been my full-time job since 2003. I am a 34-year-old French-American man living and working
in Minneapolis Minnesota. I have +16 years of expertise as a professional photographer. Recent clients include Porsche Minneapolis, Taste of the NFL, Medal of Honor Convention Twin Cities, and Women's Leadership Trust Forum. I will be your teacher today.
-------- WHY THE MOVE TO THE USA? -------- I am a husband and step-father who moved to Minnesota in 2015 to live with the wife Sophia and 2 kids: Blake and Samara, 16 and 14. They all are musicians or artists.
-------- MY FRENCH HERITAGE -------- From 1995 to 2002 I primarily I studied French literature, English literature, and German, and even Russian for 3 years when I was in high school in France.
I was born in France so the language is my mother's tongue. My parents are Monique and Alain, typical French names. I have an older brother (Frédéric) and a younger sister (Johanna) who lives in Québec, Canada now. I do not practice German and Russian at the moment but I am a specialist of French language. If you want to test my French here I am!
-------- LE TEST FRANÇAIS: BIEN, OU QUOI ? -------- Comme on dit en français: "quand on me cherche on me trouve !" Le français, on l'appelle aussi la langue de Molière par opposition à l'anglais qui est la langue de Shakespeare. Le français c'est facile car il suffit de pratiquer souvent avec un bon prof' qui sait ce qu'il fait. Et voilà les amis c'est comme ça qu'on doit bien faire les choses en bonne et due forme ! Y'a pas d'secret vous pigez le truc on quoi? Si tu es d'accord dis-moi oui oui hoche de la tête mon ami ! Alors, tranquille le chat? T'inquiète biquette ? Ça roule ma poule ?
-------- MY PASSION FOR SOCIAL WORK -------- In 2015, before I moved to the USA, I was the President of nonprofit organization Association Sunyoga France, French branch of the main NPO from India called UNIVERSAL PEACE CENTRE, for scientific and spiritual research, agriculture, clothing, taking care of orphans and elderly people, with a health center and an education center.
Our 7 humanitarian programs focus on creating a Self-Dependent and Sustainable Global Family Home University. As we speak, we have people from +14 countries working together towards that goal.
I know the organization well since I have been working with them since 2012 in France, India, Serbia, and now in the USA! I am now working on creating the American branch of the association. It is called Universal Peace Centre • SUNYOGA AMERICA.
-------- GLORIOUS CONCLUSION ABOUT TEACHING -------- Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you for your trust and friendship.
Wishing us all best success, peaceful, blissful, healthy, and enlightened life. Merci! Gratitude.

Hands on instruction on manual camera settings (ISO, aperture, shutter speed, white balance, etc.). Framing the subject from different angles. And most importantly, how to see light the way your camera sees it.
I am a graduate of UC San Diego (bachelor of arts, sociology) and UCLA (master of public policy). As a child of immigrant parents, I value diversity and love learning languages. I read, write and speak Spanish fluently, and have intermediate command of both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese in reading, writing, and speech.
Photography has been one of my main areas of focus for over ten years. I am trained in both film and digital formats and specialize in demystifying the DSLR so that you gain a good understanding of manual settings and how to use each to improve your photos.
Caring, compassion, and understanding are essential for learning and I strive to do my best in these areas.
Students will learn about manual photography using a Canon or Nikon DSLR. We will discuss all manual settings and how to adjust for various lighting situations.
I am an artist and art teacher with 12 years of experience in schools. I love teaching students at my studio and enjoy teaching students how to create work that lie within their areas of interest. I'm always game for a change of the plan or for projects to take a turn in a different direction. These are the times that provide the most learning!
I can teach students of all ages and am able to instruct on a variety of art topics. My personal favorite media are: acrylic paint, colored pencil, and watercolor pencil.
I look forward to working with you to make artwork that interests you!
I am both an experience photographer and a person with teaching skills. I have teach in the past with a high success rate. I will drive the students from the simple to the more complex topic with a smooth transition.
My name is Janlet Minor, I am a technical expert and photographer. I started doing photography about 25 years ago; I have teaching skills too. I have taught math and science in high school and high school in my country (Dominican Republic). You will not be disappointed if you choose to take a class from me.
All levels, from absolute beginner to pro – at the convenience of your own home and at your own pace! It’s just you and me – so everything’s relevant.
As a photographer, I like to think that I’m efficient at finding the holy grail of documentary photography, the “decisive moment” – every single time. I’ve been perfecting my photojournalistic style for decades and reached the point where the skill of “blending in”, becoming ubiquitous yet invisible morphed into a habit. My working style gravitates towards documenting the natural flow of your event.
But there’s a flip side: every once in a while, merely capturing what’s in front of me just doesn’t cut it. Sometimes I have to shatter the ambience and create a peculiar mix of light and shadows, divergent colors, delivering a brand new reality. I do all this at the set, not in Photoshop – so we’re creating a reality, not faking it.
Is it possible to learn this power? Of course, that's why I'm here!
I'm a Fashion Photographer and also a former National Geographic Photographer who has taught Photography for more than 15 years, including as a guest lecturer and speaker at Photographic events around the country. I love working with all levels of students, from beginners to advanced professionals. I will teach you how to take great photographs that communicate your message, stories and ideas. Whether its learning how to take great travel photos, shooting fashion ads or product shots for your company website, I will show you how to do it. I also teach Photoshop, both beginner and advance to take your photos to the next level.
I'm a former NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PHOTOGRAPHER and Fashion Photographer, shooting ads for major corporations. My ads for Revlon, Estee Lauder, Calvin Klein and other famous brands have apeared in VOGUE, ELLE, INSTYLE and hundreds of other publications. I've also been a frequent guest speaker at major photographic events and trade shows, teaching advanced techniques to professionals.
I'm an expert in using Photoshop, including advanced retouching techniques, composites and layering. And I believe it's critical to master these skills to produce truly great photography, because even if you're not doing any retouching, you need to use these techniques to fine-tune your image and make it powerful.
Because I started as a photo-journalist and then went into fashion and advertising, I have a in-depth understanding of how to create strong, b
eautiful images in all of these areas. I've hung out of helicopters and airplanes shooting for National Geographic, and worked in New York City creating images for major ad campaigns.
If you want to improve your travel photography, portraits, shoot amazing product shots, or anything else, I can show you how to do it! I love sharing all the knowledge and techniques I've learned over the years to help make you the best photographer you can be!

had to take a pause so I may need a refresher when we resume!"
"Julie was great and helped me feel more relaxed with my camera already. I am now confident that I will be able to master this equipment!"

"Great! Look forward to another one"

Once you've done your time-lapse photography, how should you edit it all together? Here, Pasadena, CA teacher Nathan H. shares his recommendations, plus the pros and cons of using Photoshop and Lightroom...
So you just finished your amazing time-lapse of the sky. You’ve composed your shot. You’ve made sure nothing went wrong. You’ve waited an hour for your camera to take 600 images. It was a long, painful process.
But it’s over, and now it’s time to head to some post-p …
