About Tadej
I'm a portrait and documentary photographer, graduate of the International Center of Photography in New York City. I've been working on stories for newspapers, magazines and for non-profits for over a decade. My first roll of film though (I started with b&w film), was lame and completely forgettable. Actually, my first few rolls of film were completely forgettable. But with practice, guidance and looking at photographs, my techniques and seeing improved. Family, friends and eventually editors started to appreciate my photographs, and I published in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal,
and Conde Nast Traveler, among others.

Camera settings, composition and creating an image that tells a story (and many other aspects of photography), I had to learn it too. So whether you hadn't held a camera before (except for a smartphone...), already know something about photography techniques or are looking to work on a personal project, I'd be happy to work with you. My goal is to help you improve your photography, though, I can't promise your photos will appear in The New York Times... :)

About Roberta
When I was 30 years old, living in Sao Paulo, Brazil, I seized the opportunity to rediscover my artistic roots and took a class to learn painting on ceramics.

A few years later we moved to Newtown CT and I got the opportunity to progress beyond merely painting on ceramic. Besides starting off from scratch with clay, instead of bisque, the scope of work expanded and today encompasses many styles and varying techniques.
I first showcased my work to the public at the 2nd Newtown Arts Festival in 2013. I was encouraged by the response, and shortly after this show was invited to join Connectic
ut Clay Artists an organization of professional clay artists who collaborate creatively and intellectually, and exhibit their art collectively.
Since January 2015 I have been teaching ceramic classes to middle and high school students at a homeschool coop and recently also started to teach at the YMCA in Danbury CT.

About Scott
Although beginning my professional life in the Information Technology industry for nearly 10 years with a degree in Computer Science, for the past 8 years I have been working as a professional photographer shooting everything from Portraiture to large scale commercial projects.

Photographing people however, has always been my passion. My work has been featured in many national photography competitions, as well as being published in magazines including Lucky, InStyle and Westchester Magazine.

I also facilitate and teach photography workshops on a variety of topics for beginners all the wa
y through advanced artists. My photo studio also provides mentoring services to up and coming photographers to help focus their artistic vision and keep their technical skills razor sharp.

I'm also available for computer tutoring as well to improve your technology skills and get you comfortable with the latest hardware and software applications.
