About Ana

My name is Ana, and I am a photography and Adobe Photoshop instructor.

I am a professional photographer,and I have been nominated best photographer of Miami 2012. I have been photographing for many years, and I have pictures published in magazines like "Professional Photographer" from England, and Latin Trade from US.

I am originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and I have been living in Miami for about 12 years. I am also a proud member of PPA (Professional Photographers of America).

My photography classes include how to use the manual settings, take pictures using certain rules that will make your pictures look so much better, as well and all the editing process using Adobe Lightroom or Adpbe Photoshop to transform your pictures into works of art. I also teach 35mm (film) photography, including how to develop your pictures and enlarge them in the darkroom.

Portraiture, landscape, macro, and action are some of the styles we will review, as well as to study the masters of photography, like Ansel Adams, Bresson, Sally Mann, and many others.

I am also an algebra tutor. I have been teaching elementary, middle, and high school students for many years.

I love working with children, and currently most of my algebra, history, Spanish, Portuguese and geography are students from elementary and middle school, while most of my photography and Adobe students are college students, or adults who would like to improve their photography skills and take it to the next level.

Please contact WyzAnt if you are interested in scheduling a class with me.
