In Helsinki, Finland (Photography)
I have been a professional photographer for over 20 years, most of that time working for magazines in Finland and Portugal, doing assignments in 22 countries. My specialty have been location portraits for business and celebrity magazines and currently corporate, wedding, portrait and boudoir photography for customers in Florida.
I have the skills to teach you from the very basics to the most complicated. I am very skilled in lighting, both in studio and on location. I can show you how to achieve great results, without over spending in equipment. We will start by finding what are your needs in photography, pinpointing the specific things that are slowing you down. It may be something simple or because of the nature of photography, being a combination of art, tech and social interaction, complicated. Then making a list of things to learn and a timetable to achieve those goals under my tutoring. I will also provide basic notes, to make it easier to follow the teaching and doing later the new things you have learned, by yourself.
Depending of your location and needs in tutoring, I can teach on-line as well as in my studio or a place closer to you. I am looking forward to help you achieve your goals in photography.

Max taught me how to take clear quality pictures of still jewelry items that will be posted on my professional website. I was very pleased with his manner and patience. I would highly recommend Max.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I started photography as a hobby in 1979, when I was 14. I made money as a part time photographer in the High School, then went to study photography to a two year College. During the College I worked evenings and weekends in the lab of Lehtikuva, at that time the largest news agency in Finland. After graduation, I was employed by the National Museum of Finland for a year, as a second shooter and darkroom technician, doing museum quality exhibition prints.
I started as a freelancer in 1989, first doing product, industrial and advertising photography, before finding my niche in magazine portraiture. In Finland my main clients were publishing houses: A-Lehdet, Talentum and OtavaMedia (current name). In Portugal, Magazines: Ideias & Negocios and Marketing and Publicidade.
I have also done in a small scale, catalog and fashion photography during the years. Currently I work for private clients doing sensual portraits and boudoir photography in Florida.
Because of a long career in all kind of photography, I have the skills and knowledge needed to teach photography from the basics to more advanced.
