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 that 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.

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.

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.

Mark was great. Articulate, clear, and made everything easily understandable. A first lesson should definitely be two hours and I look forward to many more lessons.

About Joy
Hello! I am excited to help you with this important step in your business or accounting work. I have a passion for teaching and when my students really grasp the concept it is a win for us both. I am very patient and friendly.

I don’t expect you to understand everything in one session, I’d rather ensure you can repeat the motions without me there, than to rush you through and have you end up frustrated or making financial decisions with information you’re not confident in.

I have a great sense of humor and you will never walk away from our lessons with unanswered questions.

About Chad
I have a mix of formal education and self-study so I can deploy some methodologies from either if they seem right for you. I have a B.S. in BIS (Business Information Systems), a Masters in Business Administration, and I am working on my Masters in Science (Information Engineering). In addition to that, I have a great deal of experience working and teaching SQL in the professional world. I am proud to say I have had several of my students and former direct reports become skilled enough to work and get hired at several notable companies. I am patient by nature and I know how important it is to meet you where you are now and not talk over your head. The purpose of our meeting will be equipping you with what I know, in a manner that helps you connect the dots.

SQL was greek for me, and Chad did a great job breaking down the information and making sense of it all. He was encouraging and always available and helpful providing not only his feedback but shared any resources as reference.
