Art of Intuitive Photography

Greenwich Village, New York, New York
(414 Reviews)

The Art of Intuitive Photography is focused on enhancing your intuition in photography, learning how to see differently, and compositional improvement. It is open to all photography levels and all digital cameras (including point and shoot). This is not a technical class, however we will go over basics to those who request/need it.

We will conduct exercises to tune you into your intuition, and learn how to take photos by following it. In addition, we will focus on the differences between looking, observing and seeing. Throughout the class we will give feedback on how to better the composition of your photos. You will notice that by the end of the class you will not only be looking at the world differently, but you will have better photographs to prove it!

How we are different:

  • Fun for all ages
  • We teach photography classes, workshops and lessons to adults and children/teens in various fun locations in NYC. Learn how to use your camera, improve the composition of your images, join a photo tour, or learn how intuition can help you take creative photos. 
  • Personal and hands-on.
  • If you're tired of traditional classroom teaching or frustrated with reading manuals or watching videos, join one of our classes for an authentic way of learning while getting the personal attention you deserve.
  • We offer a 100% money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with a session you attend.

This class is really worth taking for all the photography beginners. Mindy was truly informative, and her explanation was very easy to understand. I will definitely come back for more classes with her!

Attended: Intro to Smartphone Photography

I was initially skeptical about a class in smartphone photography--point & shoots & SLRs are one thing, but camera phones?--but there was actually a lot to learn (which really shouldn't surprise anyone given how advanced these cameras are nowadays). It was nice to have the class on Governors Island, on a mostly sunny day, which helped with the class. The course instructor, Sepia Prince, was great; not only is he a really cool guy, but, as a professional photographer, very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend the class for anyone interested in taking better photos with their phones. Highly recommended. Yoni

Mindy Véissid is an excellent teacher. I just bought a new camera and this was my first photography class. I learned about ISO, aperture, and shutter speed. We practiced taking photos in class to apply this new knowledge. She went around to make sure everyone in the class knew how to use the settings on their individual camera. She even helped me put on my camera strap! Once again, she is a wonderful teacher and I'm excited about taking another class soon!

Mindy as such a great teacher! Cannot wait to take another class again soon! I could barely turn my camera on and by the end felt very confident shooting in manual mode

Mindy is a fantastic teacher and the lesson was super easy to follow. I had a great time in the class and am looking forward to practicing all the things we learned!


Attended: Digital Photography I: An Introduction (Beginners)

Great class!! Learned so much in 3 hours and Mindy was an amazing teacher. She really helped me get excited about photography and now I can't stop playing with my camera and practicing everything I learned. I would highly recommend to others who have a fancy camera and want to learn how to actually use it without keeping it on auto-mode all the time. Mindy is all about creativity and understands that each individual has their own style and I love that. So glad I took this class!
