Photography is my life. I have been doing it professionally since 2003. I have references and exhibitions all over the world. I can teach groups or individually. People of all ages and all levels are welcome.

About Jonathan "JC"
Hello! Bonjour!

The way I teach is simple and fun! I am patient and dedicated to your success.

My name is Jonathan. I am a 33 year old French-American man living and working in Minneapolis Minnesota. I will be your teacher today.

I am a happy husband and step-father who moved to Minnesota in 2015 to live with the wife Sophia and 2 kids: Blake and Samara, 15 and 13 (11th, and 8th grade this year).

I have been a professional photographer for more than 14 years now. It is my full-time job. I also practice traditional Indian-Himalayan SunYoga, meditation, acupressure. I have participated in healing cancer patients and all kinds of diseases in 4 different countries (USA, France, Serbia, India).

In 2015, before I moved to the USA, I was the President of a Non Profit Organization called SUNYOGA France, French branch of the main
NPO from India called UNIVERSAL PEACE CENTER, for yoga, research, education, and humanitarian programs. I am now working on creating the American branch of the association. It will be called SUNYOGA AMERICA.

WHAT ABOUT TEACHING? Everybody wants the best. I believe QUALITY is the most important. I also believe each person is UNIQUE and should be treated in a unique way with unique lessons.

What comes first? Question or answer? When we arrive on our first day at school do we have final exams? First the teacher shares knowledge during class. Depending on the teacher's talent, passion, and love for his work, the students will learn something. Then only we have exams.

Hopefully wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.

Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you.

As a photographer my motto is
ENLIGHTEN YOUR EVENT, BRING LIFE TO YOUR STORY

I have shot corporate and actor headshots for over seven years. I look for eager students to understand what they're doing as oppose to just memorizing. I will listen to your goals and adjust the curriculum to your needs. Whether it's working with Cannon, Nikon or whatever brand of camera for the first time, I can assist you with your needs. I have lots of energy and love students with a sense of humor! Let's start having fun!

About Blake
Greetings! My name is Blake and I can't wait to meet you! I have been practicing design in the corporate, fashion and entertainment industries for over ten years. I can assist you with your goals from learning a new design software to providing guidance one of your current projects. Whatever you want to achieve, I can assist you by finding the right path. I do not have a set curriculum because every student varies from age to experience. My only rule is to take fun seriously!

I'm a total novice and Blake is very patient and doesn't mind explaining things more than once. After one lesson, I feel like I can start putting what I learned to use already.

These lessons will address principals of composition in photography, as well as learning the exposure principle to be able to apply correct camera settings.

A link to an interactive camera setting tool will be provided for the students to practice on their own time.

At the end of the lesson, student will receive an exposure cheat sheet. The list can be stored on a smart phone and consulted any time anywhere while shooting.

Minimum requirements for enrolling in this class:

1 - Because every lesson is customized to address each students' unique circumstances and needs in the field of photography, students must provide information on which camera they will be using PRIOR to purchasing lessons.

2 - Student attending online lessons must use a desktop computer (or powerful laptop) with a camera and a microphone.
Good internet connection is necessary to avoid technical difficulties during the course of the lesson.

ATTENTION: Due the teaching methods being used in these ...

About Ana
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 tho
se 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.

Full immersion into the art of light-writing! The key to mastering photography is knowing your gear, and how to properly work your camera of choice in accordance with the settings you're shooting in, to result in the perfect photos. You must first learn the rules before you can break them! Then comes the endless potential of shooting photos, archiving your life in whatever way you see fit.

About Rush
I'm hoping to get to work with students who want to dive right into mastering their camera and all it has to offer, whether we're shooting on film or digital, both of which I can offer instruction in. Learning to be in absolute control of your camera and how your settings will affect your photos is key to creating your images & making sure they come out exactly the way you envision them. Our time together will be a full immersion into light-writing. Over the years, I have had approximately 4 years of cumulative formal instruction on the subject, and have been freelancing since 2011, for events such as weddings, anniversaries, baby/bridal showers, graduation and engagement photos, live concerts, and just about anything else you can think of. Previously a Photography student of Daytona State College in Florida, I made the move up to Chicago
in 2015, and am currently studying at Harold Washington College. In the spring I will graduate with my Art Studio AFA. I genuinely look forward to any time spent with someone with a desire to hone their craft, and hope to bring more inspiration to those wanting to bring forth their vision. Aside from photography, I also teach a handful of other subjects that you or someone else may be interested in!
