Maundy’s classes were excellent, beautifully structured to blend the technical and artistic aspects of digital photography.  In each course, she offered theory, examples, hands-on work, and supportive critiques that allowed us to better assess our photos.  And because she kept the classes small, Maundy was able to take time with each of us and provide thoughtful ideas for our ongoing improvement.  My husband and I had earlier enjoyed a portrait session with Maundy, and she brought the same professionalism and joy to her classes as she had to our photo session.”  – Sara Jayne Steen

Maundy Mitchell is an awesome teacher. I took both her ‘Introduction to Digital Photography’ and ‘Introduction to Portrait Photography’ classes. I was able to fill in some gaps in my learning through her classes.  She provides an excellent summary of basic photography techniques and delivers hands on learning.  She knows how to encourage students to explore their hidden talents while gaining a new appreciation of art. I really enjoyed how she analyzed the work of famous artists, such as Rembrandt, John Singer Sargent, etc. [She applied their techniques to] her photography work and turned them into pieces of art. I also learned so much about lights, how to set up lights, how to build connections with anyone being shot through her Studio Portrait class.   I enjoyed her classes very much! What she taught me about photography and art will stay with me.” – Tinglan Yang

Maundy Mitchell’s portrait photography class is the most educational and helpful of any photography class I have taken. She knows this subject of portraits as seen through the history of portraiture in art. Her instruction focuses on being aware of light and the photographer making a meaningful contact with their subject in their quest to produce a successful portrait photograph.” – Molly Drummond

Maundy is not only an Incredibly talented and skilled portrait photographer, but a gifted instructor who is able to translate technical photo and camera talk into understandable people speak. The reviews of each of our photo homework with affirming yet instructive comments were invaluable in learning the craft. There is so much to absorb and it was so much fun, I would happily take this same class over and over.” – Kathy Kelsey

Learning from Maundy Mitchell has been the best decision I made for my photography. I highly recommend both of these classes!” – Marissa Prata
