I was really shy before taking Tamika's class, she really taught me how to bring out my inner actor!

Self defense class was very informative. Instructor Jeff really used techniques that I could use in an everyday situation being a woman with 2 children. Very patient and knowledgeable

Jeff's one of the best teachers (of any kind) I've ever come across. I had no experience and am highly uncoordinated and saw my skills quickly develop, giving me a new level of confidence and security. He also loves to discuss how karate can be used in real life situations.

Jonathan is such an inspiring and motivating photographer.

I was fortunate enough to participate in one of his workshops almost a year back. This review is based on the amazing experience during the workshop and highly beneficial interactions with him beyond that.

The workshop itself was wonderful. Jonathan made sure that every participant understood exactly what he was talking about on a one on one basis. ‘Patience’ - the virtue great photographers are known for was on display live. There were beginners, intermediate and professional level photographers and each of them learned a lot from Jonathan and from each other. The biggest impact was the photography community feeling Jonathan created in us and all of us interacts with each other even after a year and learn together via social media groups.

As part of the conference, there was a street photography session where we interacted with strangers and got their photographs. It was a great experience. Being new to Minneapolis and from a different culture and upbringing, this experience helped me to gain a lot of confidence and finally I was able to come out of my shell.

The best part about Jonathan is, he helps me out so much with my photography even months after the workshop. Also, he provides the opportunity to assist during photo shoots which help me a lot to learn just by observing. It really really helps me improve my photography knowledge and experience.

I would definitely recommend Jonathan to anyone who is looking to get into the photography world. He is such a great teacher who will inspire and be with you throughout your journey!!

This is Andres' mom rating the class. I have to say that Andres was very excited about this first class, and since it ended, he has been studying. I guess he was captivated. Amazing achievement!

I am so thankful I found Jon via takelessons for photography lessons. He is an amazing, encouraging and a patient teacher. Before the class, we discussed my goals and Jon came up with a lesson plan to help me meet those goals in 3 days of classes. I have learnt so much during our classes so far - the impact of light on photographs, the importance of talking with the subjects/models and the benefits of patience and being a keen observer. Jon is ever so helpful and is always suggesting ways to help me improve my photography skills. Thank you Jon!!!

I have observed and learned a lot from Max. Through observation, he has a great connection with all kids, adults, and parents. He is able to mentor the kids through his teaching techniques. Both kids and parents are not afraid to communicate with him about how they are feeling because of the connection they have. This allows him to better help his students. As a student, he gives clear instructions on how to execute techniques. Whether you're a fast or slow learner, he will get you to where you want to be.
