« I have received photography lessons from Jonathan on and off over the last year and I have found him to be a great teacher. What he is best at is being patient and explaining details clearly and methodically in a way that makes sense. He is also very skilled at breaking down the more sophisticated aspects of photography so that it's logical and easy to absorb. My comfort level and my skills have improved substantially since taking lessons from him. I highly recommend him. His own photography is impressive and inspiring. »
