Again, thank you so much!"     Mary Baldwin

  That was such a sweet gesture. I wish all teachers were as caring as you are. Great pics! Thanks for sharing!      Emma’s Mon SBCA


You are not only a  talented photographer but an excellent teacher (or should I say magician).  My son use to be very shy and withdrawn but recently my husband and I have noticed that he is more outgoing and appears to be getting more confident around ohters.  He loves taking photographs or should I say "creating photographs" as you have taught the children and he reminds me of that whenever I say taking pictures.  He can't wait to create photographs of anything and everything.  I think he is catching your passion for photography.

Thank you so much for being such an inspiring teacher..."  J & A Savatto


 

Love my Head Shots!  Thanks for helping me to feel comfortable in front of the camera.  I really enjoyed our session.  The 8x10's came out perfect and helped to land me an extra role on Baord Walk Empire."                                                                                                                                                    C.S.

t was a great night (as you will see from facebook)! We made about $9,000 - $10,000 and the photography was a big hit! There were many bidders.  The student photographs are awesome."  C.K., LES, Brooklyn

Thank you Peter  This project that you and the girls are working on is interesting and meaningful. Cannot wait to see their pictures!   Rosemarie T.


Thank you for the update. The girls explained  to me what abstract photography was yesterday, upon pick-up. So you see...they learn and they also teach me some of the unique concepts that are part of the world of photography. Have a great week, Anne W.


I am the Advancement Director for the school.  Thank you so much for forwarding these pictures!  They are fantastic and I can create a photo album on our FB page to share with our families and friends for marketing purposes.  I will also be happy to give a shout out to Olaf’s Photography!

1)  I enjoyed doing class projects and learning how to make something look like it was shot 

by a professional photographer.  In this class I have learned many skills such as not centering pictures, how to use your camera, and how to make whatever you are shooting look amazing.  


 2) My favorite style of photography was having students or my mother :) model for me.  I got to play around with the lighting and see how difference in how the room is lit can change the way the photograph looks.  


3) I would definitely recommend this class to other students because in the one year I have taken this class I have learned a lot.  I know how to use my camera, how to take amazing photographs, and many other things that have helped me become a better photographer.  


4) During my time at the photography club we did a lot of projects.  Out of all the projects I    enjoyed doing macro photography.  Taking pictures up close is great and interesting because you get to see the object you are shooting from a new perspective. 


5) I had a lot of fun at photography club.  Olaf really taught me everything I know about photography.  This class was amazing and I hope others join! :D

     

Thank you Peter😄 

Beautiful pictures 

Love that they are learning different techniques while they are also bonding their friendships during this time 😄
