Learn how to create beautiful images using more than just the 'auto' setting.

About Ross
Ross has been teaching for five years in both a school environment - in which he helped develop a performing arts department from the ground up - as well as private lessons, where his students succeeded musically and theatrically, having performed on Broadway, Off-Broadway, with the Rockettes, and on international tours. His teaching philosophy is simple. Everyone can sing, most simply don't know how.

As a performer himself, Ross is a singer, actor, and photographer who graduated from the prestigious New York University with a Dual-Degree Master's of Music in Vocal Performance and Vocal Pedagogy. He has performed across the country regionally and on tour, in such iconic roles as "Marius" in Les Miserables, "Jack" and "The Baker" in Into the Woods, "Roger" in A New Brain, and "Anthony" in Sweeney Todd.

Proud member of Actors' Equity

Photography is my life. I have been doing it professionally since 2003. I have references and exhibitions all over the world. I can teach groups or individually. People of all ages and all levels are welcome.

About Jonathan "JC"
Hello! Bonjour!

The way I teach is simple and fun! I am patient and dedicated to your success.

My name is Jonathan. I am a 33 year old French-American man living and working in Minneapolis Minnesota. I will be your teacher today.

I am a happy husband and step-father who moved to Minnesota in 2015 to live with the wife Sophia and 2 kids: Blake and Samara, 15 and 13 (11th, and 8th grade this year).

I have been a professional photographer for more than 14 years now. It is my full-time job. I also practice traditional Indian-Himalayan SunYoga, meditation, acupressure. I have participated in healing cancer patients and all kinds of diseases in 4 different countries (USA, France, Serbia, India).

In 2015, before I moved to the USA, I was the President of a Non Profit Organization called SUNYOGA France, French branch of the main
NPO from India called UNIVERSAL PEACE CENTER, for yoga, research, education, and humanitarian programs. I am now working on creating the American branch of the association. It will be called SUNYOGA AMERICA.

WHAT ABOUT TEACHING? Everybody wants the best. I believe QUALITY is the most important. I also believe each person is UNIQUE and should be treated in a unique way with unique lessons.

What comes first? Question or answer? When we arrive on our first day at school do we have final exams? First the teacher shares knowledge during class. Depending on the teacher's talent, passion, and love for his work, the students will learn something. Then only we have exams.

Hopefully wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.

Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you.

As a photographer my motto is
ENLIGHTEN YOUR EVENT, BRING LIFE TO YOUR STORY

Glendale, CA

I am a professional photographer and has been shooting events for 10 years.

Depending on your level, I would customize a package for you and your needs. If you are a beginner and have never held a camera before, we would start from the basics (Learning composition, camera settings etc.). If you are intermediate, we would learn lighting techniques and conduct photoshoots.

About Drea
I have been in the creative industry since I was a child. I have been singing since I came out of the womb! And doing photography since high school. I am now in front and behind the camera as an actress/on camera host, and I am a professional photographer/videographer. I have behind the camera for companies such as VH1, MTV, Fuse TV, and the New York Post. In front of the camera, you have probably seen me in films such as Relativity Media's, "Act of Valor," "Baby Mama" (Opp Tina Fey/Sigourney Weaver), and Chris Rock's "I Think I Love my Wife." My experience both in front and behind the camera compliments each other as I understand what is needed for both positions. I try to keep my lessons informative and fun! -- Anything can be achieved if you take your time and you really want it.

I teach both in front and behind the camera :

My instructor Drea was a very was a very Patient and was prepared for our lessons. She sends an email and get a basic understanding of what your goals are what type of equipment you're planning on using and if she is unfamiliar with you for particular camera she does her research and is prepared to answer you any of your questions. I would recommend taking photography classes from her, I intend to continue taking lessons from Drea she is a treasure trove of knowledge.

I lost the "joy" of photography with Irina. Technically, she knows her stuff, but her sensitivity and people skills are lacking. Barely an encouraging word. I felt degraded, nervous, and overall shitty by the end of the second lesson. Hoping for a better experience with another teacher.

Irina is amazing... I would never even think that I can create such beautiful photographies.
My father used to have a small photo lab at the loft and it was like a magic to me. I was always passionate to learn the beauty of photography however I never got the chance to.
I took few classes with Irina, she helped me to create incredible photos for my marketing campaign.
Irina is very professional and patient teacher, she has deep knowledge of photography and she makes it fun to learn.
I would recommend Irina to anyone who wants to learn photography.

My name is Christopher Feth. I am a recent graduate from Parsons the New School for Design where I received my BFA in Photography. I have studied graphic design, advertising design, web design, fashion design, and music theory and production throughout my 6 years in higher education. I am a multimedia artist, primarily working in photography, but my interests and practices include video, songwriting, painting, makeup artistry, and fashion design. I am comfortable and fluent in all aspects of production within these mediums. I am I am available to tutor any of these subjects, with a specialty in digital photography and creative software including Adobe Creative Suite, Apple's Logic Pro X, other Apple software, or even Squarespace. My artistic practice is deeply personal, creativity is at my core. I am deeply passionate about technology and it's innate ability to push society forward and I would love to share what I know with anyone that is interested.

About Christopher
My strengths and skills lie in my work ethic. I teach with the same passion regardless of the pupil, but a completely unique style depending on how the student responds. I have been teaching software since I was very young, it has always just come intuitively to me. That being said, there are infinite learning styles, everyone's brain chemistry is a little bit different, so I adapt accordingly. A lot of this software and technical knowledge is difficult and tedious, and there are often many different means to the same end, but my teaching style is thorough and simplistic, and I will always explain things in a way that is cohesive to the student's learning process.

I have worked with Chris on a number of photo editing projects and I have been guided through the process with ease. He has done professional product photo shoots for my business and edited images prior to posting to an e-commerce website and has the eye, layout and technical ability to produce stellar results. When I am in need of direction on how to get the most out of images I use for print or online applications, he is my "go to" person for guidance.

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.

10+ years experience teaching as a college professor as well as to junior high and high school students, including adults of all ages and backgrounds. Lessons can be tailored to individual needs, learning styles and interests, including your goals—as a professional or hobbyist. What distinguishes me as a teacher is that I’ve mentored award winning photographers and journalists including fellow professors. I focus on content and form, the technical and skills in looking and in critical thinking, and also developing your own vision, however casual that may be, while examining areas to take your work to the next level — creating interesting work that tells a story without looking canned or overly filtered. And using available light with or without an equipment budget/lowbudget.

About Zoey
