“To take photographs means putting one’s head, one’s eyes, one's heart on the same axis.”

- Henri Cartier Bresson.


Are you ready to open your eyes to fresh ways of seeing and perceiving the world around you?

I teach the secrets of Natural Light Portrait and Street Photography. Through private one-on-one lessons, you will push beyond the cameras, lenses and technical jargon. You will learn the “insider” tricks necessary to enhance your observation, increase your anticipation, develop your timing, and build a photography style that is individual to you.

Each lesson is “hands on,” as we review together what you shoot between lessons. The goal is to help you analyze what works and what doesn’t, and you will grow in your confidence and skills.

For each of my students, I go above and beyond. I support my students with encouragement and specific feedback. My lessons will challenge you, but we will move at a pace that's comfortable for you. You will also laugh and have fun!

About Pilar V.

I've been teaching photography for more than 20 years while working as a professional photographer for numerous magazines , newspapers and photo agencies.

I'm based in New York City. My work has been published widely, as a regular contributor to the Washington City Paper and The Washington Post Magazine, among others, and through my internationally-reviewed photography book, "Female," commercially published in 2018.


I hold a degree in Journalism from the Universidad Catolica in Chile. I've attended many photography courses at the ICP in New York City and the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C.
