About Jonathan "JC" C.

Photography is my life. I have been doing it professionally since 2003. I have references, clients, awards, 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!
I believe the best way to teach is to make it simple and fun! I am patient and dedicated to your success.
-------- QUALITY FIRST --------
Everybody wants the best. I believe quality is the most important. I also believe each person is unique, therefore each student should have tailored lessons.
-------- HAPPY TEACHING --------
Teaching should be a positive and fun experience. I believe in a personalized and genuine approach. In my experience the benefits are enormous: we save a lot of time, energy, and since it is way more suited to the student, we are more efficient = happy! Hopefully Wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.

-------- PHOTOGRAPHY --------
Photography has been my full-time job since 2003. I am a 34-year-old French-American man living and working
in Minneapolis Minnesota. I have +16 years of expertise as a professional photographer. Recent clients include Porsche Minneapolis, Taste of the NFL, Medal of Honor Convention Twin Cities, and Women's Leadership Trust Forum. I will be your teacher today.

-------- WHY THE MOVE TO THE USA? --------
I am a husband and step-father who moved to Minnesota in 2015 to live with the wife Sophia and 2 kids: Blake and Samara, 16 and 14. They all are musicians or artists.

-------- MY FRENCH HERITAGE --------
From 1995 to 2002 I primarily I studied French literature, English literature, and German, and even Russian for 3 years when I was in high school in France.

I was born in France so the language is my mother's tongue. My parents are Monique and Alain, typical French names. I have an older brother (Frédéric) and a younger sister (Johanna) who lives in Québec, Canada now. I do not practice German and Russian at the moment but I am a specialist of French language. If you want to test my French here I am!

-------- LE TEST FRANÇAIS: BIEN, OU QUOI ? --------
Comme on dit en français: "quand on me cherche on me trouve !" Le français, on l'appelle aussi la langue de Molière par opposition à l'anglais qui est la langue de Shakespeare.
Le français c'est facile car il suffit de pratiquer souvent avec un bon prof' qui sait ce qu'il fait. Et voilà les amis c'est comme ça qu'on doit bien faire les choses en bonne et due forme ! Y'a pas d'secret vous pigez le truc on quoi? Si tu es d'accord dis-moi oui oui hoche de la tête mon ami ! Alors, tranquille le chat? T'inquiète biquette ? Ça roule ma poule ?

-------- MY PASSION FOR SOCIAL WORK --------
In 2015, before I moved to the USA, I was the President of nonprofit organization Association Sunyoga France, French branch of the main NPO from India called UNIVERSAL PEACE CENTRE, for scientific and spiritual research, agriculture, clothing, taking care of orphans and elderly people, with a health center and an education center.

Our 7 humanitarian programs focus on creating a Self-Dependent and Sustainable Global Family Home University. As we speak, we have people from +14 countries working together towards that goal.

I know the organization well since I have been working with them since 2012 in France, India, Serbia, and now in the USA!
I am now working on creating the American branch of the association. It is called Universal Peace Centre • SUNYOGA AMERICA.

-------- GLORIOUS CONCLUSION ABOUT TEACHING --------
Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you for your trust and friendship.

Wishing us all best success, peaceful, blissful, healthy, and enlightened life.
Merci! Gratitude.

Want to know how to operate your camera and take great photos? I have been a photographer for nearly fifteen years creating mostly landscapes, macro, night and architecture. I've had photos shows and been in the Mass. College of Art annual auction for 8 years selling every year.

I have had several gallery shows and have sold work in the Massachusetts College of Art Auction numerous times.

I love many styles which include, Film scores, Pop, New age, Rock, improv, Classical and some Jazz.
I teach basic to intermediate. (Scales, finger exercises, chords, arpeggios, theory, simple songs, posture and breathing, etc.)

Last year, I taught an eight year old girl and three boys. I currently worked at Piano Playtime where I teach twelve Kindergarten to 4th grade group piano lessons. I am fun, easy to get along with, and very patient with kids and adults.

In the past, I scored a local film titled "The Times Were Never So Bad: The Life of Andre Dubus" who's son Andre Dubus III wrote the story "The House of Sand and Fog." In 2003 the novel was adapted into a film starring Ben Kingsley and Jennifer Connelly. The film won first place

I have a car and can come to your location or you can come to me depending on distance. I look forward in sharing this musical journey with you!

The magical nature of photography is this great mix of science and creativity and in the 16 plus years I have been honing my craft I have met many that have found the art form and flourished creatively. Join me for lectures, discussions, and tutorials covering the basics and advanced techniques. Stop just taking snapshots and start making images!

Interested in learning photography to do as a hobby? Maybe even freelance? Well luckily I'm here to teach you all that you will need to become the best photographer you could possibly be. I will teach anything from how to use a camera, to even editing your own photos. I have been doing photography for over 6 years. I've done many different types of photography such as traveling, food, fashion, weddings, corporate, real estate shoot and private events. Lets get in touch and set up a plan to help you reach your photography goals!

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!

About Keith L.

Portland, OR
View Full Profile

Whether you want to shoot amazing portraits, capture candid moments with your friends, or showcase the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, photographic knowledge is universal. It's all about the lighting, the composition, and the moment.

Operating the camera is secondary and my goal in teaching is to demystify the technicalities of "taking a photograph" so you can focus on all of the creative decisions involved in "making a photograph."

About Keith
I've been a film and documentary filmmaker since 2006 and have shot projects in over 15 countries around the world. As a cinematographer and editor, I have credits on many films, documentaries and commercials. As a director, I have a body of music video work that has been premiered on NPR, Paste Magazine, and Billboard.

I've held just about every job there is to have on a film set and would love to share that knowledge with you!

About William V.

I've been a photographer for half my life, and in that time I've made it a personal mission of mine to teach curious people as much as I can. I've tutored in person, I led workshops and clubs, and I've worked for major institutions like the Center for Photography at Woodstock! It's never been easier than now to learn photography, as we all have easy access to at least one camera or another! I can teach you everything from making beautiful images with your iPhone, all the way to how to load and develop your own film. Photography is what makes me wake up in the morning, let me share my passion with you!

About William
I've been a photographer for half my life! I've worked commercially photographing products for a major home improvement brand, I've managed a professional level photo printing lab, retouched photos and photographed for major sports organizations, and now I shoot weddings and teach! Though I work commercially, art and teaching are my true passions and the commercial work just serves to support what I truly want to do: spread my joy for photography to other people.
