- Teaching since:
I am a professional photographer specializing in photojournalism, portrait, food, and wedding photography. I graduated from UCLA and have worked professionally in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York.
Students can expect to improve week to week in their photography skills. Every photographer has a unique vision; I teach students the technical and real-world approaches to bring that vision to life. I can help any student to photograph with confidence and success.
I teach photography students of all different ages and experience levels. I have 15 years of professional experience. I can teach students to select the right camera settings for any situation and compose their photos for the highest visual interest.
As a professional photographer, I frequently travel to New York and San Francisco for photo shoots. I have photographed events with Michelle Obama and Nancy Reagan. I've worked with high-end restaurants such as Blue Hill at Stone Barns for their food photography. I've photographed alongside firefighters battling wildfires in Southern California. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, creative photographers.
My personal passion is photographing people, but I firmly believe that a great foundation is essential to any and every photographic field. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better photographer!
Jonathan is a very patient and knowledgeable instructor. I felt like I was in the driver's seat and could ask anything; I never felt rushed or intimidated. Looking forward to working with him again!
