This was my first time taking any kind of private art lesson and I am really glad to have gotten Giuseppe. He explains things in a very easy to understand way, and has no problem fielding questions, even if they stray from the immediate topic, which is great for my learning style. I will definitely book more lessons with Joe.

Photography is a big part of our lives these days. It's a modern way of story telling. Let me help you tell your story better. From Beginner to Advance, I cater the lessons to your needs.
A life long student of Photography myself, I have made my living as a professional Photographer for nearly 10 years. In addition to Shooting I have been teaching and helping others hone their craft for the past 4 years.
Many people want instant results but photography is a process. Despite the experience level of the photographer my goal is teach something new. Be it a concept or technique at the end of the session you will be one step closer to your goals.
The session doesn't end at the end of the hour. I provide e-mail support for questions pertaining to the discussed subject matter. I do assign homework and or conduct practical lessons so I also provide feedback and critique for photographs.
I use Lightroom and Photoshop for post processing and I am able to provide instruction on ...

About Mark Onewolf
I began photographing family events at the age of 8 years old. I was always fascinated with how things work and the camera was no exception.
I learned to shoot with Film cameras. First with my Dad's Pentax and when I was employed I purchased my own. During my time in the Navy and Army I became good friends with a combat photographer who mentored me in photography. Long deployments were perfect to cultivate my skills and there was no shortage of people places and things to photograph.
So what makes me a good Instructor? My education background is Avionics and Electronics Engineering. I am a math and logic minded person which enables me to reverse engineer processes and break them down. I have experience teaching ESL to foreign exchange students which often requires me to understand the task from the perspective of the client so tha
t I am able to help them understand in the way they learn.
I come from a Artistic family, Music, Art, Dance, Singing etc and being a musician myself I am not just a 1's and 0 person. Photography is a very logical subject not unlike music. There are rules to bent and offers structure yet has a creative release for those of us seeking that.
My clients find that I am patient and laid back and able to explain things in multiple ways until they get that ah ha moment. I am passionate about photography and I hope my enthusiasm is contagious.
As a Professional photographer I see so many bad photos from family and friends and others posting on social media and in forums. Someone took the time to show me and feed my passion so I want to do the same and help to create better photographers and hopefully better photographs.

Mark has taught me a lot of lessons in photography. Very knowledgeable in a broad range of disciplines (i.e. long exposures, head shots, weddings, street, editing, portraiture, product, and more). Covering so many categories of photography I feel gives him the ability to answer many questions that a specialized niche photographer would lack. I am a photographer and I get paid gigs, that's how good Mark is. I received my ROI 100x over. Highly recommended.

Just had a photography lesson with Mark last night. He was great. He explained everything in a clear and concise manner that I could easily understand. He also listened to what I wanted to topics that I wanted to learn and tailored his presentation to cover those topics. Thanks, Dan.

Jen is simply fantastic. A few months ago, I hired her for private lessons to help break through some technical and artistic barriers in my photography. Essentially, I was getting inconsistent results and wasn't able to translate the observations about the good shots into techniques for learning from them and leveraging them in the future.

From the beginning, Jen was focused on my objectives and concerns, and was able to tailor a curriculum to focus on those aspects. She reviewed my existing work with a great mix of enthusiasm and constructive analysis, and the small amount of apprehension I had about having a professional critique my shots evaporated pretty quickly. Jen is very personable and clearly on your side, which makes the feedback cycle easy and light. With her help, we were able to break down some of the things I liked about my own photography, but wasn't making full or considered use of. We also identified a number of ways in which I could improve bringing my own style into more of the process, both behind the camera and in editing choices.

In the field, there's a lot of good dialogue about how to approach a given scene, how to efficiently explore it for non-obvious opportunities, and how to convey a sense of story (one of my particular weaknesses). As one would expect, she has solid technical skills and is able to quickly troubleshoot tricky lighting situations and make suggestions about how to approach exposure/DoF/focal length to align with the intended mood. The feedback is always friendly and typically very pragmatic. I've already found the number of shots making it past the initial cull increasing, at a time when I'm also becoming more critical about what makes for a good shot.

Overall, Jen's guidance has had a sizable impact to my photography in a relatively short time. One of the best parts about making it past some of those persistent stumbling blocks is how much more enjoyable my time behind the camera has become. Would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking to improve their own photography, or move into the world of professional photography.

I’ve had multiple opportunities to learn about wedding photography from Jen and every experience has been so positive and helpful. Not only does she help me with technical aspects of shooting but also provides me with any random tip or trick that might make shooting easier. Jen has so much knowledge when it comes to photography and she’s really an amazing teacher. It’s clear that she loves what she does and that she really enjoys teaching! I also want to add that she’s just a great person to be around as well. She’s awesome to just chat and hangout with. It’s always felt so relaxed and comfortable. I highly recommend learning from Jen at any opportunity. She truly is awesome!
