‚Äč"I knew absolutely nothing about cameras or photography before coming into class with Jeffrey.  After taking a private one-on-one course, I feel totally prepared to tackle my photography projects.  

Jeffrey did an amazing job tailoring the class to my specific needs and interests. I love that I did not waste any time on things that did not interest me. I highly recommend taking a class at the NYC Photography Workshop!      -  Morgan H.
