I simply love to teach my favorite medium of art. Photography has brought me so much joy so allow me to show you how it works! I will listen to your goals and adjust the curriculum to your needs.I will teach you Technique as well as Processing Imagery - traditional and alternative. You will enjoy learning about how to operate the camera and compose an image. I believe Hands-on learning can channel good energy and focus your attention. Trust me; you will love the latent image appear in the darkroom. You will feel gratified to hold in your hands a concrete representation of what you are seeing with your eyes.

About Priscilla
I thrive in creating a personable learning experience to each of my students no matter the age or background. I believe You got to be versatile with people's learning style and capabilities so that they may enjoy making art. Through my 15 years of studying and teaching Art in both here in the US and in Brazil, my homeland. I've come to realize with the support of my mentors, peers and my family that my niche is to alternatively educate people specifically children in the arts for the enrichment of culture. So get on board with me and let's Create some new Photo Based Art!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have an easy-going, yet structured approach that allows each student to achieve results effectively at his or her own pace. Key concepts, such as point of view, framing, lighting, and composition, are taught using any camera. Technique and
process are often what captivate students most.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Must have an SLR or DSLR camera.

*** Travel Equipment ***
note book, folder, etc

*** Specialties ***
My main goal is to present students with simplified theories of art and mentor them on techniques and processing of photography.

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!

Whenever I'm not at the computer, I'm acting, improvising or podcasting in Chicago.

I can teach you about your camera settings, basic technique, composition, lighting, shutter speed, aperture, ISO and a number of other things.

About Jason
NOTE: Please check with me before booking as that my schedule changes frequently.

My educational background is in journalism with a minor in English and I've always been enamored with the literary and visual arts. I published my first book featuring poetry along with photography in 2006 and have since written four more.

My photography has been published in several magazines as well including the following:

Fahrenheit USA – Nov. 2015
My Belleza Inc. – April 2016
Tres Jolie – May 2016

In 2007, I started the business called Three Rivers Creative Arts providing creative service including photography, writing, editing and graphic design.

As a person who likes the opportunity to help others and to work with all of these types of areas, I thought that a great website like this one here at TakeLessons could allow me to do both

Jason seemed very knowledgeable about website creation in general, and using WordPress in particular. He was quite helpful by introducing me to the basics of configuring my website, pointing out some "must-dos", and suggesting key things to keep in mind as I proceed with my blog/website. I certainly intend to rely on his expertise again in the near future.

Experienced photojournalist who has been in the business for the last 8 years. Graduated with a degree in visual communication for Ohio University's renowned photojournalism program. Interned at the Colorado Springs Gazette and the Los Angeles Times. Have since built my own business as a freelance photojournalist. Some of my clients include the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CNN, USA Today, Outside Magazine, and many more.

I look forward to sharing my skills and knowledge of photography with you!

About Susannah
Photography is my greatest passion in life. So far, it has placed me on the streets of San Francisco documenting the lives of the homeless, in Kenya tracking the great wildebeest migration, and in Scotland racing behind a pack of huskies while documenting the lives of professional mushers. Through these experiences, I have developed a total love for the power and beauty of visual storytelling. My camera has allowed me to delve deep into people’s lives, my own life, and the world around me.

I have had the pleasure of collaborating with a lot of incredible people at pretty cool places, some of which include the New York Times, AARP, Outside Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, NPR, USA Today, United Healthcare, The Wall Street Journal, American Express and Bark! Magazine.

Whether you're just picking up a camera for the first time, or looking
to kick start your professional photography business, I've got lots of knowledge and experience to share.

I look forward to meeting you!
