Knowledgeable and friendly

Steven helped my daughter learn how to focus on pictures and to get the desired lighting needed for the photo she wishes to take. He was very easy going and was willing to take any questions, given my daughter cannot wait for her next session with Steven.

Use of Apple Photo.

Very patient and knowledgeable. He is a pleasure to work with. Answers questions in a clear and concise manner. Allows me to do the manipulation of what we work on.

knowledgeable and patient

We covered basic use of my DSLR Camera and basic concepts for photography. Steve was very patient and answered my questions thoroughly. I would recommend him.

Great lesson - learned a lot!

Steven met us in Oakland and we learned basics of photography and then went out and tried taking pictures of people and the lake. He was patient and answered all of our questions. He explained the rudimentary details of photography for us while also helping us be creative and tell stories. I recommend him for a lesson!
