The new President's dismantling of this country's principles was too much to witness firsthand - so I left for Europe. If you find yourself in Spain and would like a private photo lesson - do let me know!
Exceptionally knowledgeable teacher taught the class at an easily understandable pace. The smaller size of the group also allowed for all involved to receive personalized instruction, even as we all arrived with different brands and models of camera.
I loved Ovi's class, he's a great teacher. He explains things very well and customizes his class to the people in it, so it doesn't matter how much/little you know when you show up, you'll leave feeling more confident and informed. He offers a great mix of lecture and hands-on work, and is a super smart and charming guy.
This was the best 1-day class I've taken on digital photography and the most I've learned from a dabble class yet. The instructor was very patient and effective in helping us learn the fundamentals.
I found Ovi's DSLR class to be great. He is patient, funny and knowledgeable. He is able to explain the concepts very clearly. I really appreciate the practicality of the class since we are out and about and practicing what he is teaching right then and there.
Great class! The hands-on, walking tour approach definitely helped me learn (and remember) the basic/key elements of operating a DSLR camera. Ovi was very knowledgeable, attentive and patient and he explained the camera functions clearly and effectively!
Ovi really took the time to help us understand our cameras and was able to answer our specific questions and showed us how to do creative tricks with our cameras as well. I have a much better understanding of how cameras/light works. You will leave feeling like an expert!
Ovi is a fantastic photography teacher and matched the information he provided with our current camera knowledge. Rather than sitting in a classroom, he took us to the Lakeshore East park where we had an immediate opportunity to test out our skills right after we learned them.
Having started with a modest film SLR more than a decade ago, my passion for photography has lead me down many roads - including jobs as an event photographer for international organizations and model photographer for specialty fashion blogs. In addition, world travel has exposed me to all sorts of environments and unique opportunities, further improving my photographic technique and feeding my creativity.
Having developed a strong handle on the technical side of photography, and after seeing many DSLR owners struggle to make the best of the photographic opportunities they come across, I've found fulfillment in helping others embrace the art of photography.
