Jason was great! He engaged my son (11 yrs old) immediately and took him through a fun, introductory lesson (and even went over time)! We are definitely planning to continue with Jason.

Brad is just a great instructor who is very effective at using technology to make the experience extremely easy and very productive. I wasn't sure how photography and light room lessons were going to work in the environment but it has been a great experience with just my first couple of lessons.
I wanted to learn how to make subtle adjustments to some of my favorite photos to bring out the detail and highlights that made the shot a favorite. Brad quickly walked me through seemingly complex edits which were very easy to learn and made my pictures really pop.
I love landscapes and animals and have fallen in love with past shots that I did not realize could be such improved pictures with just a little help from Lightroom.
Well worth the investment and I have received countless complements already on my new work.

Thanks Brad for taking me to the next level of enjoyment and satisfaction with a personal passion of mine.

I've always wanted to improve my Photoshop/Lightroom skills. As a matter of fact I've talked about it for over six months but just never seem to have the time. Enter, Bradley. After just one lesson my knowledge has improved and I am already using the skills learned through his instruction to make my photographs better. Bradley is thorough, patient and extremely knowledgeable. The classes flow easily and you can see how much he enjoys teaching.

Originally I was looking for an in-person class but taking the class online in many ways is easier. We are able to easily share each other's screen and there are no pesky interruptions from other classmates. Additionally, I am free to ask and receive an answer to any of my perceived silly questions.

I wholeheartedly endorse Bradley and recommend him as a first-class instructor.

Having never taken a watercolor lesson before, I did not know where to begin. Renata showed patience, expertise, and humor as she helped me acquire the materials I needed and explained the basic procedures. Her demonstrations and personal assistance were exceptional. I highly recommend her as an outstanding instructor.

Blake was a great teacher. He is very professional and knows everything about graphic design. He showed me his current work he does as a freelancer and it made me more excited to possibly get into the career of graphic design. He is always on time and very respectful. I definitely recommend him!
