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 ...

Stephen's a great instructor both from a technical and personable perspective.

He's got a cornucopia of musical knowledge that's evident from how speaks to how he teaches. If you like any film score, chances are he knows how to play it.

Speaking as a beginner, I can say he's been very patient and knows a bunch of exercises and books to learn everything thing from theory to practical pieces to finger exercises.

He provides constructive guidance on what you're doing wrong, and I'm happy to see myself improve under his tutorage. (oh and if you're a sci-fi fan, you'll have a lot in common with him)

Steve is an excellent teacher! I always look forward to my classes. I am a student in high school, and he fully understands my need to balance my school work with piano, and he makes sure that I am able to comfortably commit to both aspects of my life. Steve makes sure that I stay on task and that I am progressing with my piano skills all while making the lessons fun and enjoyable.

As a college graduate with two Associates degrees in Fine Arts & Associates in Digital Arts, and a Certificate of Completion in Digital Photography, I've learned a tremendous amount about photography and operating the camera. I'm eager to share this knowledge and these skills with my photography students.

You'll learn the basic functions of your camera, how to compose a great photograph, and if you need help with editing and managing your photos I can help you with that as well. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions, I'm always happy to help!

He was patient and took the time to work with me on my current website issues. He went above and beyond to help. Easy to work with.
Keith Rivers
Josiah is an EXCELLENT teacher. I purchased WordPress early in 2021 in order to build a company website. After going through tons of YouTube and WordPress lessons for literally several months, I still had no idea what I was doing and my website was also going nowhere.

After choosing Josiah as my instructor, I had an immediate improvement of my website and also gained a wealth of knowledge about website design and building in a very short amount of time.

Josiah is very, very knowledgeable and patient. I never feel coerced. He listens to my questions and concerns and gives timely, reliable feedback. Most importantly, he genuinely wants his students to learn.

Additionally, I appreciate the fact that there are no assignments, no exams, I only have to learn what is important and what I want and need to know, and I can do all of this at my own pace with absolutely no obligations or constraints.

In addition to the website building, Josiah also unselfishly gives invaluable expert advice on other topics such as marketing and advertising. I am very grateful for his help.

I am happy he is my tutor. I don't think I could have chosen a better tutor. I strongly recommend him as the number one tutor for website building with WordPress.

And we'll also discuss the benefits of two styles of studio lighting. The natural lighting of a photo will be much softer and a warmer look while using studio lighting gives your photos a more ov …
