I am a Graphic Designer with a full time job teaching Photoshop and Photography in high school.
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 weekend 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.
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.
Attention: many hours of extensive work go into creating comprehensive student-specific learning content for each individual student at beginner level.
When booking a lesson, bear in mind that your teacher will be working on developing these materials after the lesson has ended.
I will do everything in my power to develop, complete and send these materials out to you during the same weekend*.
With that in mind, please plan for taking lessons on a Saturday.
Sunday students will most likely not be able to benefit from same-weekend newly developed learning content.
Helping and empowering the next generation of amazing creatives in visual arts:
Adobe Photoshop tutorials, Adobe Illustrator tutorials.
Exercise of Elements and Principals of Art in Photography, Graphic Design, and Digital Painting.

Ana prepared the class in advance and really focused in what I'm looking for to learn.
