Over the past two years I have taken four live online classes and it has been a very rewarding experience. I have especially enjoyed the global nature of these classes, having been in class with photographers from India, Sweden, Monaco, South Korea, and Germany. In addition to improving my photographic skills, I have learned a great deal about the cultures of and conditions in other countries.

Anja’s live online classes provided an intimate and safe space where I felt comfortable to present and discuss my work with other students, thus traning me for presenting my work outside of class. The assignments coupled with class critiques taught me how to formulate my point of view of other people’s work, and to continue learning about things such as composition and sequencing. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is committed to advancing their photography, or who might need a little push and new prespective on where to take their work.

Anja’s class helped me much more than I was expecting. I was a bit lost in proceeding with my raw idea in the beginning, but the classmates from diverse backgrounds were there with me along the whole journey, sometimes as a critic and sometimes as a supporter, and their thoughtful feedback pushed me forward a lot. I recommend Anja’s online classes to anyone who wants diverse feedback and the intimacy of the classroom experience.
