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 Moataz
I am a Freelance Graphic Designer living in Powell, OH. I love learning and teaching, like a lot. I teach languages, Lettering, branding, and the basics of Graphic design as well as the adobe programs that bring it to life.

My promise to you is that I will teach you everything I know in the time I'm given and provide you with all sorts of outside resources to get you on your way to fluency and proficiency.

I'll make sure to do my absolute best to get you speaking a new language from day one, learning a Design program immediately, or teaching you how to letter with the rules they don't t
each you in school. And best of all, I'll even show you how to actually make money with all of these.

I have a very unique journey into learning where I experienced many places and got a fresh and different understanding to the many subjects that I teach. For example my knowledge of multiple languages and travel to different countries gave me an added knowledge of linguistics that I experienced first hand and confirmed in books, so now I know how languages work, and can relate a concept from one language to another even if the languages seem completely different.

My Design work has been very general so I've done a lot of different things before I specialized in hand lettering, so I've done it all from advertisements on billboards to website design and development, to copywriting, to branding from start to finish for companies big and small.

My love for lettering and Calligraphy emerged when I started getting more Logos for client work and my exploration of type wasn't the best answer most of the time so I would letter everything myself, and the rest is history.

I am really passionate about learning and even more passionate about sharing what I've learned. I am efficient, I know what works for different people since I taught in classrooms and tutored way before I knew about Takelessons, and I'm most proud of being praised as a very genuine person. A very common compliment I get is that I sincerely want my students to do well. And it makes me really happy every time someone says it, and I hope that one day you see that and tell me the same thing.

Feel free to find out more about me and ask me anything you want, and I really look forward to one day teach you something that will get you to achieve your goals! :)

Just so there are no surprises, I raise my prices very slightly every 3 months, next time it will go up is on March 3rd 2017. The reason for this is because I get better and more efficient at teaching as time goes by, so that hour that you get now is much more packed with value than the same hour last year or last month.

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.

About RA
I love working with new photographers to learn their cameras and effectively post-process their images. Whether you are a beginner or have more advanced knowledge, I can help you gain both skill and confidence to bring your photography to the next level.

I'm a professional photographer doing both commercial and fine art work in New York City. I recently completed a five city book project working with another photographer where I shot with a circa 1980 film camera. I do a lot of urban/street photography both digitally and on film and have a great deal of studio experience. My background is
in the sciences and fine arts and I love to share my ten plus years of hands-on experience.

I am what is usually called a "power user" when it comes to Photoshop. I've tacked everything from removing writing written on human skin to removing/replacing backgrounds. I work with the program nearly every day along with Adobe Lightroom.

I've been doing photography since the era of film and I've worked with nearly every kind of camera. My background is heavily informed by the fine arts. I minored in drawing as an undergraduate, eventually going on for an MFA in painting.
