I am a filmmaker who has also had extensive practice with photography. I am versed in many types of analog and digital photography.

About Paul
While attending the University of Southern California, where I received my M.F.A., I worked as a writing tutor in the USC Writing Center and also taught Classical Greek Mythology. After graduation, I taught Verbal, Writing and Literature SAT classes and worked as a private tutor in a variety of subjects.

I later taught for five years at the New York Film Academy in Universal City, CA, where I taught a variety of Critical Studies classes to various levels of students, some in certificate programs and others working towards their M.F.A.

As a former English and Spanish double major, I have always enjoyed teaching at various levels. Most of my other work these days involves the writing and editing of short stories, screenplays and novels.

You’ll find that I have the education, background and experience to be an excellent instruct
or for your needs.

Paul was my favorite teacher at the New York Film Academy.
Unlike most of the teachers, Mr. Paul put a lot of effort and creativity into planning his classes, which made them both stimulating and fun for us.
I also loved the fact that Mr. Paul always respected our opinions, and never made us feel stupid when we didn’t understand something. He was always very encouraging and willing to keep explaining until we got it.

I highly recommend him to anyone interested in extra lessons. He is definitely worth it!

Take your photos from amateur to pro with the secrets on improving composition, exposure (including aperture, shutter speed and ISO), choosing the right lens for the subject, lighting (including speedlight flashes, strobes and natural light), the importance of post processing, Photoshop and photo organization and more!

About Jacob
Hi there and thank you for considering me as your personal mentor in the world of digital artistry. A long time ago this world was just a hobby for me as well, and I hope to help you develop your skill set into something much more. I have over a decade of exposure to the rapidly-adapting professional photo and video world, with experience spanning from the smallest of freelance jobs all the way to mainstream feature film production and post. You can spend a lot of money in workshops or online training, but nothing comes close to the value of one-on-one personalized training. Because I enjoy teaching, I make an effort to keep rates affordable for the value of education given. If you're a photographer wanting to make your photos look like the pro photos you see online or a videographer looking to advance your work to the next level then wel
come aboard!

I look forward to meeting you.

I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Jacob. My husband gave them to me as a birthday present and it was tons of fun. Jacob was able to answer all of my nitty gritty questions, as well as general tips on improving my skills. The lessons were enjoyable and I learned tons. I've gone from shooting in complete auto mode, because I didn't know how to do anything different, to shooting in aperture priority mode with much better results. My Christmas portrait of my kids will be much better this year thanks to these lessons. If you're looking for an affordable way to improve this is a great option because you'll learn a lot in just a few one-on-one sessions. Jacob was also very flexible in working with me on the schedule for the lessons. Thanks Jacob!

I have shot portraits professionally for over 4 years in all styles and environments. Aside from the basics and art of photography, I can teach you how to prepare for photoshoots, working with clients, and create a smooth experience to get the best photos out of yourself and the people you work with.

About Gordon
Hello! My name is Gordon L. and I would love to help you or your child discover your passions and work towards reaching any academic or artistic goals!

Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, I am fortunate to have had an exceptional academic foundation. I attended Punahou School K-12 earning high marks and went on to graduate college from the University of California, Berkeley. I have a variety of expertise and tutoring experience in these subjects:

- Computer Programming
- Math
- Chinese
- Humanities
- SAT

Outside of school, I have also always been an artist and hobbyist, heavily investing myself in various forms of creative expression including:

- Dance (hip-hop/urban)
- Photography (DSLR, Lightroom/Photoshop)
- Card magic/Card flourishes (look it up :P)

Over the years, I have found that my enthusiasm for both people
and learning different things greatly enriches my life and those around me. If you're looking for someone who can introduce you to a variety of subjects, I'm your guy. I love learning about anything and everything and hope to encourage others to explore their passions. Furthermore, though my interests are many and varied, I have also committed years into training, have a solid grasp on their principles, and can confidently say that I am a qualified expert. I look forward to meeting you and helping you learn with me!

Sergey taught me about everything I had questions about and also offered suggestions in helping me to better determine the best way to find the career path that is right for me. Rather than hard and fast lessons, it was an opportunity to spend time, one on one, with a professional and learn from his experiences what works and what doesn't.

These lessons will address principals of composition in photography, as well as learning the correct camera settings.

At the end of the lesson, student will receive a camera settings sheet. The list can be stored on a smart phone and consulted any time anywhere.

Minimum requirements for enrolling in this class: A desktop computer with a camera and a microphone. Good internet connection.

Students will be asked to provide information on which camera they will be using PRIOR to the 1st scheduled lesson date.
All lessons are customized to address each student's unique circumstances, therefore failing to provide this information, might result in lesson content preparation delays, and lead to lesson rescheduling.

About Ana
I am a Graphic Designer with a full time job teaching Photoshop and Photography in high school. Recently I've been receiving many requests from amateur and professional photographers, as well as aspiring graphic designers, who would like to learn the unlimited creative possibilities that Photoshop has to offer. 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. Whether you would like to learn the secrets of professional photo retouching or dive in the surrealism of advanced photo manipulation, I can customize the lessons to your specific needs.
On the other hand, if you are just getting started and those You Tube videos are too fast or too advanced for you, we can go through the basic 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.

Update: Now also offering Photography lessons.
If you are a beginner, you will benefit from unique customized resources, which you can consult and use on your own time.
