- “Thanks! The course was very practical and easy to understand. I really loved its structure, and the informative tutorial pictures were amazing. Highly recommended to any beginner that wants to learn about digital cameras and photography!”
Anna Chern, Vancouver

- “I am the kind of person who enjoys taking photographs but has a very limited knowledge and no real idea of what my camera is capable of. Also I don’t have the time to devote hours to take a full course that covers a wide variety of lessons.
Luckily I met Maya and took a private lesson with her. Her presentation is very pointed, easy to read and understand, plus she uses her great photographs for the demonstrations. I found Maya very pleasant and professional and highly qualified, punctual, intelligent and intuitive knowing exactly when I was having trouble understanding and making sure she didn’t get ahead of me. She was comfortable with me asking as many questions as I needed to be certain I was fully grasping what she was talking about. When she was sure I understood then she would go on to the next step.
She is polite, patient and has a great sense of humor plus she didn’t make me feel insecure about my lack of photographic knowledge.
The price of her classes is very reasonable and I look forward to my next field lesson. I recommend the class to you whole heartedly.”
Gail Daldy, Bowen Island

Cindy and Terry, Burnaby

- “We just both wanted to say thank you so much for the class! Your teaching methods are very informative and easy to follow – which of course makes you want to pay attention and learn more. It was very helpful to have your example photos in class. Your humour and knowledge of cameras and photography made coming to class an enjoyable experience. Who knew that so much could be learned in such a short time? You showed us that cameras are not as scary as they first may appear! Thank you again!
Katie & Judy Hudson, West Vancouver

- “Maya is a great instructor! She will show you what your SLR camera is capable of. She easily takes very complex camera terminology and makes it understandable, she walks you through the small modifications necessary to take a great photograph. Anyone who is new to SLR cameras should take this photography class to get the most out of their equipment ”
Paula da Rosa, West Vancouver

- “Maya has excellent knowledge and helped to select the perfect digital camera for me. I took her private photography class in Vancouver – which was a new and very exciting experience for me. Her approach to teaching is fresh, and explanations are very clear.”
