I got my first camera when I was 8 years old and have been a passionate shutterbug ever since. I can teach you how to use all of the manual features on your camera to get the effects you want to achieve, and I can help you to train your eye to see and capture memorable compositions.

I encourage each student to find his or her personal style to express a unique vision. You don't need any experience to become an artist, just the desire to start noticing new things all around you and capturing moments to share with others!

For in-person lessons, we will meet in an outdoor setting to learn photography in natural light and existing light conditions. Online classes can be held in any location you have access to over Zoom, FaceTime, or Skype.

Sarah is patient and answered all my questions about using my camera in different situations. She answered my questions about shutter speed and aperture with easy to understand examples. I hope to have another lesson with her once I practice my newfound knowledge about photography!

I've been a successful commercial photographer, author, educator and film producer since 1980. I understand that students learn in different ways and I strive to accommodate these differences.

I've owned and operated large commercial studios in Burbank, CA, where I did business with entertainment industry leaders: Warner Bros, Universal, Paramount and Disney. Disney especially punched my dance card for over 20 years. We love the mouse at our house. Currently I work exclusively as a location photographer and film producer.

Throughout I’ve taught at various private and public educational institutions, wrote my first book in 2009 and am currently writing my second. I’ve mentored many young photographers over the years and am thrilled for their successes.

Thanks for reading.

I teach photography in the most fun and simplest way. I do not teach entirely based on what photography books tell you, we do it by shooting photos, making mistakes, amnd learning from these mistakes. Photography learning should not be boring, it's got to be fun, interesting, and outgoing.
With over 30 years of commercial photography experience, i can share my knowledge and experiences with you, and be able to understand photography in an interesting way, and eventually lead you to being a pro!

About Deano

My professional photography career started in 1982 as an assistant to Mr. Richard Noble Studio on Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles, California. It was an incredible, creative & amazing studio to be part of. Richard is a legendary photographer whose work graced the covers of all the magazines & billboards

I had been a student of photography from Deano Mueller for over 3 years now! With all his teaching experiences from The New York Film Academy on the Universal Studios lot, as well as working as a Professional Photographer since 1989, Deano really knows how to share his experiences, skills, & wisdom with total understanding of sharing his knowledge of photography! By far, Deano has been the best teacher that I had the pleasure to work with and has made me a much better photographer and also because Deano understood my wants & needs of what I really want to learn about photography through his knowledge & experiences!

What is the Best Lighting for Photography?

The best photography lighting is based on several factors, and depends on what type of look you want when it comes to your photos. Natural lighting versus studio lighting brings about two different looks in your photography. We'll be discussing natural lighting, which does not need any equipment. 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 …
