I am a Graphic Designer with a full time job teaching Photoshop and Photography in high school. Recently I've been receiving many requests from amateur and professional photographers, as well as aspiring graphic designers, who would like to learn the unlimited creative possibilities that Photoshop has to offer. 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. Whether you would like to learn the secrets of professional photo retouching or dive in the surrealism of advanced photo manipulation, I can customize the lessons to your specific needs.
On the other hand, if you are just getting started and those You Tube videos are too fast or too advanced for you, we can go through the basic at your own pace, until you feel comfortable with using the tools on your own.
The sky is the limit.

Note: in order to book classes for advanced techniques, students must have the necessary basic and intermediate proficiency levels.
If you are not sure what your level of proficiency is, please check with me and we can figure it out together.

Update: Now also offering Photography lessons.
If you are a beginner, you will benefit from unique customized resources, which you can consult and use on your own time.

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.
