First thing I do before first day of class is send out an enthusiastic email and call shortly after. Briefly discussing and establishing the learning goals for the course based on the visual literacy,technical,and intellectual competencies the students should achieve by the end of a period is ideal for me to design the course or update an existing course for the student's desired outcomes. The syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during class.

Lessons offered for all levels of skill. It doesn't matter if you consider yourself to be a beginner or a more advanced photographer.

About Sam
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Since I schedule classes through other outlets my availability varies. I've marked availability only to make my profile visible to potential students so, the availability you see is not my actual availability. Since my availability is never fixed and I'd like to avoid disappointing booking experiences, please contact me at 202-559-7981 to check my availability. If we can confirm a meeting time, I'll mark that availability on the Take Lessons site and you can book and confirm our meeting through there.

Thank you for considering me in your search for photography instruction.

It doesn't matter whether you use a film or digital camera. The camera is a tool that you use to create photographs.

During your photography class with me you’ll learn to use your camera and you’ll learn the skills that you need to
use your camera effectively and with confidence.

If you’re just getting started or a more advanced photographer, I offer a variety of photography courses that are geared toward a wide range of skill levels and interests.

My approach to teaching has been shaped by my photography teachers and by my experience working as a professional photographer. While I learned a lot about the craft of photography from good teachers, I learned to be a photographer by using my camera and mindfully applying what I learned from my teachers during the process of creating a photograph.

I think the best way to learn something is to learn by doing it and I make sure that we have plenty of time to practice what we cover during our time together in class. If you’re in a multi-week class, you’ll get homework too. Homework aimed at getting you to utilize the lessons we cover in class so you can create photographs that are uniquely your own.

As a participant in my photography classes you’ll get a good understanding of the material being presented in addition to hands on practical experience. What you won’t get are my judgments about your work, instead you’ll be encouraged to formulate your own opinions about your work and then I’ll offer you guidance based on your personal goals in photography.

Whether you are using a film SLR, a digital SLR (DSLR ), or another type of camera, I’ll help you to be the best photographer that you can be.

Courses are offered in Washington, DC or online. Private instruction and custom group workshops are also available.

I currently own my own photography business! In class we'll talk about basic camera settings, lighting essentials, and how to make photo shoots FUN!

About Sara
Hi! My name is Sara and I just graduated from Brigham Young University in Provo. I now live in Texas as a photographer while my husband attends medical school. I love learning and getting to experience lots of different things! When I worked at BYU as a Peer Mentor, I met one-on-one with first year college students to assist them in developing time management skills, effective study strategies, and test-prep skills. Before that I worked at a daycare for a year where I ran a homework club for elementary school students. I've also assisted in creating and carrying out a homeschool curriculum for my 4 special needs siblings over the last few years and currently teach a Sunday School class of 3 years-olds at my church - some of which also have special needs. I genuinely enjoy spending time with and meeting new people and I'm excited to get to
know each of you!

I'm not naturally coordinated in dancing much less for paired dancing, for that reason I was apprehensive and anxious about bachata dance lessons with kimmy. At the end of the first lesson I left feeling having learnt new moves and confident about using them. Kimmy is skilled and knowledgeable about teaching dance because the pace is not rushed, she provides appropriate cues and thoughtful commendations!

I highly recommend Kimmy! She is a great teacher; she was patient, understanding, and comes prepared. I completed my first dance sessions with Kimmy and came out with a better understanding of how to dance. She instills confidence with her teaching and cares that her student gets the most out of every class.
