Nancy Ori

Photographer and Photography Instructor

It has always been important to me to connect people with similar interests and watch them become friends during my workshops and classes. I have been teaching for over 20 years now and have seen fantastic friendships grow within the groups as well as with me personally. I have added many of my students to my extended family. When you get to know people and develop this kind of caring for them, learning becomes easier.

Teaching becomes easier. Part of the success that I have built over the years comes from this camaraderie. All of my assistants have come from these experiences and are now my best friends. I like to offer every student the support necessary to succeed. I put a lot of attention to the details. This is a small operation and I do not take more students than I can handle creating a very unique and supportive environment.
