About Sam H.

Close

Whether you have never picked up your DSLR camera before or are starting to become serious about photography, my lessons will help you get on the right track. I have been teaching Photoshop on Takelessons for 3 years now, and I am now deciding to expand my lessons and offer photography as well. We can go over how to use your camera, what gear you should bring, lenses, how to control: shutter speed, aperture, ISO, etc. We can get into technical aspects such as printing, post processing, and sharing your images online as well. I am a "Canon guy", so that is my specialty!

About Sam
Hi! My name is Sam! This is my fifth year with TakeLessons and I couldn't be happier with the students that have come my way. If you're reading this, then you've taken the first step in finding a tutor that is right for you!

I completed two Bachelor's degrees at Worcester State University in Massachusetts. I have a B.A in Spanish and a B.A in Communication.

I love Spanish, and I believe that you can really get the hang of it after a little time and practice. With grammar review, practice, and vocabulary memorization, it becomes really easy to learn this language. I am more than happy to be here to help you learn this exciting language! Proper pacing is crucial to learning a new language. Therefore, I make each lesson customized for every student.

Every lesson, you will receive downloadable links with all of the content covered
in the lesson.

I also teach group classes. These are great for those that prefer larger classrooms and interacting with peers. Check out the Takelessons Live page and sign up for some of my classes!

Aside from Spanish, I also teach Adobe Photoshop & Photography. There are endless possibilities with Photoshop, and I am here to let you discover some of them. No experience? Tired of watching online tutorials with no feedback? Maybe you need a tutor to guide you through the process!

We will start off with layers and then go on from there, moving into the more intricate tools such as the pen tool, layer masks, and blending modes.

For photography lessons, I teach you the technical language you need to know when talking about photos. I will show you how to command your DSLR camera to get the exact photo you want.

I have been using my Canon DSLR camera for 4 years now, primarily focusing on shooting architecture and landscapes. I can teach the basics of how to frame a shot using simple rules such as the rule of thirds, and more technical terms such as shutter speed and aperture settings to create proper lighting settings and depth of field.

About Steven
I'm a recent graduate of the Boston Architectural College, and employed by a large architectural firm in Boston. I am currently teaching a Rhino 3-D course at the BAC I tutor in all aspects of architecture including portfolio design, writing, software tutoring, design critiquing, and overall academic guidance. For software, I specialize in the Adobe Suite, AutoCAD, Revit, Rhinoceros, and V-Ray. I've tutored students of all differing ages and skill sets, ranging from novice to advanced user. Further, I have numerous references and reviews about my services that I would be happy to pass along, as well as past design work that I have done both academically and professionally. Lastly, I have numerous resources students can use after tutoring sessions are complete such as reference manuals, tutorials, and websites to visit for additional learn

About Sandra E.

Close
Redmond, WA
View Full Profile

I'm Sandra. I've worked with thousands of photographers and designers – from beginners to the best in the business 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, show you steps and help grow. I can help with technical issues but my focus is on helping you see more. In teaching college classes, my main student comment is, "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 discussion, software and cameras don't make pictures – you, your eye, and your experience are what make your pictures different and interesting.

Every person's path toward becoming a better photographer is unique. Sandra has helped hundreds and hundreds of professional (and amateur) photographers significantly improve their photography and their enjoyment of it. Working with her, results are quick.

You will get far more out each session with Sandra than from a dozen sessions with others and you will learn more about yourself and your potential. Just bring your questions, a collection of your pictures
and we start from where you are.

Sandra is an internationally respected picture editor and designer with a unique experience that runs from contributions to scores of visual books to editing for the White House, work on major newspapers, and the Associated Press. She was instrumental in the creation of the original ground-breaking news site MSNBC.com as well as spearheading creation of the Defense Department's public web program. She has taught photography and editing at three universities and at workshops all over the U.S. and judged multiple national and international photography competitions. But Sandra is still easy to talk to and interested in YOUR concerns and pictures.

Sandra's key skill may be her ability to articulate visual concepts and issues. She can find and convey the underlying needs in a photographer's work and then help him/her find a personal, unique route to reaching his/her potential.

Always fully honest, Sandra is also completely supportive of helping any photographer – from beginner to seasoned professional– become better, see more, and understand their own work on new levels.

Sandra can certainly help with technical matters but her special forte is in helping photographers and designers see in new ways. She has worked with documentary, landscape, fine art, portrait and other photographers as well as designers and website builders.

Group sessions and critiques can also be arranged on request for additional fees.

I wish I could give Sandra TEN stars; five are not enough. She's the best! She helped me see my pictures, and the world, in new ways. I was lucky enough to see her work with a variety of photographers, from students just starting out, to professionals who had been working in the field for years. They all had great things to say about her, and how she showed them how to improve their portfolios. Many of them went on to win contests thanks to her teaching. If you want a teacher that is easily approachable and very accessible, has a wonderful sense of humor, and will take you and your photos to a new level, do yourself a favor and contact Sandra. You'll be amazed!

Photography is the art of painting with light - and is a joy every moment. Want just to do better photos of your family or trips to post on social media - or discover how your camera really works - or do high-end 'art' photography? You will 'develop an eye' in no time! I am always eager to work together and share my enthusiasm to improve your photo-taking! I have been taking photographs since childhood (well before mobile phones) - and have been a professional photographer and videographer for over 30 years. Lessons are 'hands on' and geared to the needs and abilities of the student. Lessons may involve 'field trips' for great practical experience. My ability as a performing arts photographer has allowed me the privilege of freelancing for The New York Times, Lincoln Center, The Juilliard School, Carnegie Hall -- among many. My love of travel landed me first prize in a significant international Travel Photography competition. (I can teach traditional 'film' photography as well.) All

About Nanette
I enjoy people! I come from South Africa where I taught English and Speech & Drama - high school level and produced plays and shows for schools and dramatic societies for several years. I started and ran a photographic club at school. My passion and ability for photography landed me a job at a large Performing Arts Council where I covered dance of all kinds, drama, opera and music and beyond! Since working in the US. as a photographer and videographer, I have among my clients The Juilliard School, Lincoln Center, The New York Times, Carnegie Hall and many more... I have traveled all over the world and have a deep appreciation of and interest in the culture of all peoples.
I love spontaneity and open to different ways of learning.
My work has been widely published in books and other - and online.

In the case of learning a language its such am individual process that immediate feedback and adaptation of the lesson is the key to quick acquisition and confidence in applying those language skills.

I believe my enthusiasm, patience and problem-solving skills are the perfect combination in helping my students to achieve their dreams.

I am excited to work with you.

About Tony
Hello! Hello! Hello! Im Tony! I have been doing photography and editing for over 6 years. It started out as random request from my friend who was a music artist, who was looking to do a photoshoot from which he would pick a photo and use for his album cover. I told him i would help, he let me borrow his camera, I took a few pictures and BOOOM! I was hooked! From there i continued learning under many mentors and eventually started doing all types of events. I love the fact that in photography no matter how much you know, theres still always more room for new things to be learned. I'm looking forward to meeting many of you and helping you achieve your own personal goals in photography!
