Anja’s Classes

I want to tell you again that your class was great. I'm very inspired. Is there any chance you and Edward can continue this class? I don't want it to end!! It encompasses everything I love.
—Lee (California)
As a photographer, I had many stories to tell but I didn't know how to evolve from photo-taker to storyteller. Anja generously shared her experience and through weekly assignments and her constructive critiques, she gave me the knowledge and confidence I needed. I'll always value her guidance as a turning point in my photography career.
—Jennifer (Monaco)
What a great class — I learned a lot and found it very inspirational!
—Jessica (New York City)
I have learned much from Anja and StrudelmediaLive classes. She and the other teachers are very well accomplished on the technical and artistic sides of photography, helping me to grow in both areas. Anja has a creative mind and is very pleasant to work with — very important traits for a photography mentor. I look forward to more classes with her and the other teachers.
