"Hey Jesse, I took your photography workshop at the Teahouse Studio a couple of months ago. I wanted to tell you how much I learned from you and to thank you. You will be happy to hear that I am shooting 75% manual now!!! Thanks to you!!"
“I took the [Makeshift Portrait Photoraphy 101] workshop because I enjoy photography and really wanted to learn more about both the technical and artistic side of taking photos that really capture the essence of people. The workshop delivered on both fronts, and the instructors, Jesse and Sarah, were fantastic teachers and guides.”

In this class, two local professional portrait photographers, Jesse Freidin and Sarah Deragon (Portraits to the People), will teach you how to take better portraits of people (using natural light and proper exposure).
Sarah and Jesse both specialize in natural light portraits and will show you how to play with natural light, get acquainted with shutter speed and F-stops, find interesting backgrounds, how to work with your subject to help them relax, and tips and tricks to get natural and authentic facial expressions out of your subjects.
We encourage all levels of students to attend and please bring any camera you have including (but not limited to): DLSRs, iPhones, Smartphones, Point and Shoot Cameras, and/or Film Cameras.
