"Extremely talented, knowledgeable and experienced, is how I’d describe Sam. With patience, she guides you through the various techniques towards your visual goal. If concepts elude or are too complex, Sam works with you to develop an idea and find solutions to achieve your desired outcome.  Sam is creative and her technical skills are outstanding. My time spent with her is always productive and she’s always eager to assist, even if it means repeating a Photoshop step over multiple times!  Thank you, Sam! "

I had learnt to take ‚Äúphotographs‚ÄĚ to a certain level ‚Äď some quite nice, but none processed. I came to the realization that I had to learn to process if I wanted to engage with this wonderful medium, however the idea of¬†photoshop¬†scared me to the bone! Enter Samantha Osner ! To say a teacher is too bland.¬†Samantha has a knowledge and the patience, but most all she is passionate about what she does, and this with the eye for the finished image makes her a truly great teacher. My Thursday afternoon lessons have become the highlight of my week, its like the next episode of a fairy-tale !
