If you’re interested in learning photography – congratulations! Photography is a fun, practical hobby as well as an exciting career. Although learning photography does take a little patience, the rewards are certainly worth it. So, let’s start with the benefits of why you should learn photography.

- The ability to record special events like a child’s birthday, graduation or the family’s vacations with clear, focused well composed photographs.

- Never missing a picture of a special moment because you were searching for the right button or dial.

- Taking photos that you and your loved ones will enjoy displaying on your wall. By capturing your special memories in pictures, you can have a way to document and pass on these memories to future generations.

- Communicating through your photographs. A picture really is worth a thousand words! You can capture an expression that says it all. Or as we've seen in magazines like Time and National Geographic, you can shoot photographs ...

Kelvin is a very patient teacher! I knew absolutely nothing about mandolin or music and Kelvin has helped with that. I have a long way to go but, with Kelvins help I believe I can get there!
I highly recommend Kelvin!!!!!

When we were looking for a piano teacher for our 13yo daughter we were looking for someone who could also help her out with her church music as she is the "organist" during school masses. Kelvin was more than willing to do so. She has learned more in four lessons with Kelvin than she did in more than two years with a another teacher. Kelvin is very patient and makes each lesson fun. At the same time he is demanding without being strict. We are all very pleased with Kelvin's method of teaching. We highly recommend him.

After two one-hour lessons with Brad (a creative birthday gift from my wife), I already feel very comfortable with Adobe Lightroom (my original goal) and much more aware of how I'm composing my photographs to boot (a big bonus!). Brad has been highly sensitive to my needs/interests. I've just been tremendously impressed with how acurately he's been able to read my "rate of information absorption" via the real-time/on-line remote interface. This completely eradicates any hestitation about this method of instruction. I look forward to more lessons once I've done some experimentation. Thanks Brad for such a terrific experience!

I've had 8 lessons so far and am loving every hour. Even when I feel inept, Brad helps me feel accomplished. I was intimidated by my camera, didn't know/couldn't use Adobe Lightroom and felt it was all too complicated. But I am boldly going where I never thought I would and am eager to keep learning. Brad is patient and wildly knowledgeable. He can get deep into the science of light and color, or just keep the lesson incredibly practical.
I just signed up for 12 more lessons, so I guess I have put my money where my mouth is!!!

My Photography shooting style is modern plus contemporary and uses at all times elements in rules that I learned from my carrier and education and i will teach it all to you: Balance elements, composition rules, Screen, writing, lighting, The Speed lights, camera work, camera movement, Different possibilities of angles, zooming, continuity, production, Post Production, Photoshop/ lightroom retouching, HDR, VSCO, VINTAGE, OTHERS, walking with the camera, design, Albums, fine editing, and a constant care on the story to be told. Being a musician since a young age helped me to understand the complexity of sound and I used that to increase the quality of my videos.

Investment: I will focus my time towards the projects that you have, will provide exciting new ways to learn with an very active style, I'm sure I can help and be ready for your needs based on my knowledge and experiences.

As a very active Artist I always worked a lot in different positions inside the media Arts: ...

Fernando is an innovative teacher! I find him fun, thoughtful and concerned with where one is with their feelings about music , ability to play, and what goals they have in mind. He allows the student to participate in their development but with a guiding hand. I recommend him to those that are ready to learn and listen from a new perspective .
