I was the only person signed up so it was essentially a private class! Brought a new level of insight to photography rather than just snapping pictures and hoping for the best. Can’t wait to practice all the new skills I’ve gained!

Enjoyed the experience. We had a small group and I were able to ask questions specifically helpful to me. This lesson gave me more confident to shoot in manual mode, although it is not the aim of the class.

I was lucky to have a private photo tutorial with John, nobody else had signed up for the same day. What a great start! I was going to make the most out of it. I hadn’t touched my digital SLR for a few years and needed a refresher and confidence booster really bad. By the end of the session with John, I felt so inspired again and comfortable shooting in full manual setting. I captured some cool images under the Manhattan Pier following John’s instructions and couldn’t wait to put the newly learnt skills in practice! A great result in only few hours! John seems to genuinely enjoy teaching and sharing his passion. If you’re into photography, join John’s experience, you will love it.

The photography experience with John was enriching. John’s experience is really worthy and has been one of my favorite parts of the trip to Lisbon Angeles. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional and as a very enthusiastic person and he mreally guides you in to his passion.I started the session knowing more about landscape photography and how to capture breathtaking pics. John is an extremely cordial and warm hearted guy and his teachings put you in ease. Works with you patiently in giving tips and tricks of landscape photography and I will highly recommend him if you are in LA.

John is an incredibly talented photographer who just so happens to be similarly gifted in his ability to teach. As I am an intermediate photographer, he was able to customize the experience to keep me challenged; I would recommend this experience to photographers of all levels and backgrounds, including total beginners. You won't be disappointed!!
