That’s why we offer individual and small group tutorials learning opportunities that can be completely crafted by the student and portfolio reviews a unique opportunity to receive thoughtful feedback on an established or in-the-works project.

We can also customize a workshop and consultation off-site for your needs, whether you are a commercial client, school or not-for-profit organization.

During the Covid-19 when we were all staying home, I decided to sign up for an online class with Philadelphia Photo Arts with Sarah [Stolfa] as the instructor. Years ago I had taken classes with her and I was excited at the offering of doing a project as an assignment. The class ended after a few sessions but I still was working on my project so I decided to do one-on-one Zoom classes with her. Sarah is amazing with her ability to dissect a photograph. I was usually shooting for black and white, but she talked me into doing color. She opened my eyes to being aware of the colors in the frame, what I should focus on in the frame and the importance of color if used for the photo. I will go back to my project in the fall and will certainly have Sarah as my coach. She is a wonderful, patient and talented woman.
