About Ana Z.

I am a Graphic Designer and a former Photoshop and Photography teacher in the public schools system.
After receiving many requests from amateur and professional photographers, as well as aspiring graphic designers, willing to learn the unlimited creative possibilities that Photoshop has to offer, I decided to join TakeLessons and become a teacher here.

If you would like to learn how to create literally anything your imagination leads you to, or just use techniques to obtain an effect you have seen somewhere, you came to the right place.

You can discover the secrets of professional photo retouching or dive in the surrealism of advanced photo manipulation, each lesson will be customized to your specific needs.

On the other hand, if you are just getting started in Photography, Photoshop or Graphic Design, you have likely tried those You Tube videos and gave up in frustration, as most of these videos are too fast or too advanced.

No worries, we can go through the basics at your own pace, until you feel comfortable with using the tools on your own.
The sky is the limit.

Terms and conditions:

Each lesson is prepared to address a students' particular needs and may require additional preparation prior to each lesson. The student agrees to share files and/or images with the teacher for learning purposes when requested and to be willing to provide these files and/or images in a timely manner and in the requested format, at least 48 hours prior to lesson starting.
Examples: any relevant photography work done by the student, any relevant Photoshop or Illustrator project created by the student, homework practice files or images previously assigned to the student, reference images.
Failure to timely submit the requested files and/or images can result in the next lesson being cancelled or rescheduled by the teacher.

The teacher can request additional files and/or images at any time during the course of a lesson for strictly learning purposes. The student agrees to do so in a timely manner so that the lesson can continue.
Examples: any relevant photography work done by the student, any relevant Photoshop or Illustrator project created by the student, homework practice files or images previously assigned to the student, reference images.
Time used for submission of the additional requested files and/or images will not automatically result in an extension of the duration of the lesson.

Students assume and reserve all the rights of ownership on their personal work. The teacher will provide knowledge, demonstrate techniques, guide through the technical and creative processes, and can assign targeted practice assignments to the students.
The teacher will not be expected to fix students' work for them. Any requests of such nature will be rejected.

Due to the considerable amount of time that can go into preparing a class, students' attendance plays an important role in the scheduling and planning of each lesson.
Lesson cancellations are only accepted 48 hours or more in advance and require a rescheduling of the cancelled lesson. Same day or next day lessons to make up for the missed/cancelled lesson are not possible.
Missed lessons or late cancellations are not refundable. Exceptions may apply in case of an emergency.
More than three consecutive missed lessons or late cancellations can result in the student being permanently removed from the roster.
Students can discontinue the lessons program at any time after completion of the last scheduled and confirmed lesson. It is advised to notify the teacher by email to keep all records up to date.
Questions or concerns about these measures can be emailed directly to your teacher.

TakeLessons Classroom is a universal online videoconferencing platform and as such, is not infallible. It is advised to have alternative videoconferencing applications ready to run for the eventuality of experiencing technical issues with TakeLessons Classroom.
When delays caused by technical issues are out of the student's control, if possible, additional lesson time might be granted by the teacher to compensate for the lost time.
If switching to an alternative videoconferencing platform becomes necessary, the lesson will still be marked as "attended" in the student/teacher's TakeLessons calendar.
All students taking online lessons are advised to be connected to a high-speed Internet at the time of the lesson and have previously checked on their devices the stability of the applications being used.

Ana prepared the class in advance and really focused in what I'm looking for to learn. I have some specifics projects that I want to do on Photoshop and she made a lot of research before to make sure that she was going to guide me in the right direction. I had one class and so far I learned a lot of new things.

The lesson start off like every other lesson I had before. We start to get to know one another. What I want to learn and how I can improve. Like most teachers I fined things I don't like. After 15mins of lesson I start seeing how much Ana really care about the lesson. How she create new ways of teaching me on the spot. Every word was filled with new encouragement. I learn a lot in the lesson. Thank you Ana for help me learn new things in Adobe Photoshop.
