My name is Dan and I have enjoyed "taking pictures" since I was in high school. I presently shoot digital and enjoy working - playing! - in Photoshop and Lightroom. Learn to shoot images like these:

About Daniel
Hello, my name is Dan, and it would be a great joy to share with you much of what makes me happy and which can enrich your life, too!

Would you like to learn how to create beautiful images? Learn from the 2008 Grand Prize winner at the Hocking Hills Shoot-the-Hills juried Photography Contest and have much fun refining and organizing your own work in Photoshop and Lightroom

Have you ever wanted to play that tune? You can do that and much more!

Have you ever wanted to know what's _really_ said in that foreign tongue part of a movie or opera? Have fun with languages while spared the school trauma, especially Italian and French, as we watch movies, read the best literature of these cultures and - only if you want - listen to music and enjoy it like the native speakers.

Any subject becomes a joy and an adventure!

I knew a bit of french going in and needed to practice listening skills and conversation. It was a lot of work, I have far to go in being comfortably conversational, but this was the jumpstart I needed to know what I needed to do going forward. Thanks Daniel!

After my first lesson I already feel more confident that I will be able to communicate some in Italian while on vacation in Italy. Daniel is an excellent teacher who is very knowledgeable in many languages. He made me feel comfortable right away.
He has a plethora of experiences from living and working abroad. He brought simple techniques/strategies that helped me understand grammar and pronunciation.
I have homework, can't wait for my next lesson. Ciao

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.

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.

I've been shooting for over 15 years. I've shot everything from weddings to funerals, landscapes to product. I have a firm grasp on using natural light as well as studio and flash. I've spent years learning from my mistakes and want to share what I know with you. There are two aspects to photography technical and artistic. Its important to understand the principles of both so that you can apply them appropriately. I've developed my own methods to help reduce the seemingly complex into simple and easy to understand principles. Part of my course will be to work ALONG side with you to get the proper settings, lighting and composition.

The first class we will discuss your interests and what you want to accomplish and design a customized course for you.

Here are some common things we will cover:
• How to get that sparkle in someone's eye
• Learn what settings to use in different situations
• How to take sharp beautiful photos
• Understanding proper exposure and how to get it ...

About MacKay
I'm a father of 6 and have had a love and passion for capturing light (aka photography) for many many years. While I have shot many styles and types I have a really passion for candid photography in social settings - think weddings, funerals, births sporting events etc. The raw emotion is almost palpable and so real. This is why we say a picture is worth 1,000 words.

Photography students can expect to make improvements not only in their understanding but in their applicable skill level week to week. I provide not only class instruction but the critical feedback and critique on the homework assignments. I review WITH students their work, what they were trying to accomplish and why it did or didn't work out.

With many years of experience and shooting in many different situations and environments I've developed a deep understanding of ho
w light works and doesn't work. With this experience I've developed many methods of simplifying the complex into easy to understand concepts. Allowing students to better grasp then APPLY those principles.

Above all I love watching you develop, grow and learn. The best way to accomplish this is to have a firm foundation of the core principles of photography and build from there.
