As a student, I couldn’t be happier with the result! She was able to bring out the best in me and play to my strengths. Even though in the beginning my work was notably far from good, she was always patient, kept me motivated and constantly provided constructive criticism, working on specific details and basic rules, one at a time, until I felt comfortable applying them.

The work and classes are always very much hands-on and, most importantly, Chelsea never tried to push anything to influence me. Instead, she allowed me to stay true to my nature, figured out what style of photography and what other photographers resonated with me the most and made the effort of studying their work to teach me.

I have been taking private lessons with Chelsea, I started as a complete amateur and she has guided me through every process of using a camera and given me the confidence to be able to use my own intuition when taking photographs. Not only has she given me support during lessons but she has been available to me at any point I have felt the need to contact her.

She has full knowledge and background of photography and film industry and is patient when delivering instruction. I would throughly recommend Chelsea if you are looking for a tutor to give you the best possible teasching experience in photography.
