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 very patient. He helped my son get rid of his mental block, and he is very comfortable with drawing now. He is a great teacher!

I was very excited to be taking lessons, I played when I was a little girl, & my husband knew this & bought me a violin for Christmas so I could play again... but I was nervous if I would be able to learn since I'm not young! Mr Lin is a great teacher, he is very patient, & made me feel very comfortable... and I'm teachable! Yeah! I did good... I'm going to keep practicing, and can't wait for my next lesson!

My third lesson was all about drawing pictures and taking notes as Tony went through the exact steps I needed to edit my photos in Photoshop and PS Lightroom when I don't have Tony standing there guiding me. After explaining what I wanted to do, he was able to just show me the steps needed. In other words, he's a Pro at Photoshop. Like I said before, I can't ask for a better teacher and coach than Tony.

Tony is awesome! He has extensive knowledge of photography, cameras, lenses, lighting, photoshop and has his own studio right in his house. I couldn't ask for a better or more cooperative teacher. Will be returning this week for my second followup appointment.

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!

Blake has worked with me on several occasion teaching me the basics of Photo Shop.
I enjoy his low pressure easy to understand way of teaching. He seems to do a bit of homework before he even meets with you for a lesson which I found very impressive. He truly tries to customize the lesson towards your needs and where your at. Rather than spit out a canned lesson. I am seeking his services for another project as we speak. Highly Recommended... not an easy thing to get me to do but he has my respect and admiration for doing things the right way for the right reasons!

Highly recommend Blake! He was nice, polite and very knowledgeable on photography. I needed a refresher in order to shoot the Northern Lights on an upcoming trip to Iceland and he gave me all the tools and tips needed to make my camera work for this type of shot. He explained everything in simple, easy to understand ways that I know I'll remember for this trip and beyond! Thanks, Blake!
