Photography is a big part of our lives these days. It's a modern way of storytelling. Let me help you tell your story better. From Beginner to Advance, I cater the lessons to your needs.

A lifelong 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 ...

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 becam

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.
Kim
Mark is a thoroughly knowledgeable, patient and encouraging instructor. I just completed a series of lessons with him to learn the basic elements of my new camera and settings so that I can go beyond the auto settings before embarking on a trip to Peru. I couldn't be happier with what Mark taught me. In addition to the basics of aperture, shutter and program auto modes, he provided very practical information on things like tripods, storage, programs and apps. I can't wait to take more lessons from Mark when I return from Peru!
Jess
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.

Sergio provided a good understanding and application for my first saxophone lesson. I had no knowledge of playing the instrument. He showed my how to create sound right off the bat. He had a good attitude with me, being very relax and patient. Nice time with him. Eddie.

I've created many cartoons in the context of illustration, comics and 2D animation. My specialty is in expressions, character designs and story-telling.

My recent (on-going) achievement with cartooning includes a graphic novel/webcomic I've been working on, "Dinnersaurus Rex," with hundreds of subscribers across all websites it's been hosted on. I've also created many 2D animations for clients in the past.

My mission is to spread this knowledge of cartooning and to help achieve the goals of students.

Emily continues to be a great tutor for my daughter. She has incredible patience - especially since my daughter loves to chat - and has helped foster a strong passion for digital drawing in my daughter.

Hello fellow students!

My name is Anabel, I am a professional photographer in Los Angeles, California. I photograph a variety of subjects, from pets to Grammy-nominated musicians, and everything in-between! I am well versed in studio photography and on-location outdoor work, and can help you learn to make the most of any location and subject matter.

Being self-taught, I believe that I have an entirely different approach to education; one that sits well with aspiring photographers, especially those that are disappointed in traditional (as in, college and university) photographic education. My teaching philosophy revolves around educating on the minimum and maximum capabilities of your gear and giving students all of the fundamental tools to create whatever image they have in their head (hence my lack of a photographic ‘niche’ in my work. When your camera becomes an extension of your arm, your subject pool is limitless).

In 2015, I had officially made my photography classes ...
