About Your Instructor
Hi, there! I’m Jama. For the last 20+ years, I’ve worked my way up the ranks as a professional portrait photographer, gaining both local and national recognition.
I have combined expertise with studio portrait photography and have grasped the essence of shooting with natural, outdoor light; adding a flare of modern imagery. Over the years, I’ve been lucky enough to add several awards to my shelf, including, being named a “Best of Austin” portrait photographer for the last six years. I’ve also been published in The New York Times, and featured in numerous local papers and exhibitions.
If there’s anything I want to do next, it’s to work with aspiring photographers of any degree and teach them about the wonderful world of photography.
In these lessons, parents, entrepreneurs, photographers, hobbyists, and bloggers will learn how to excel at the art of photography through one-on-one Zoom lessons (some in-person sessions may be available, too.)
The mission I have is to enrich students’ lives through the relaxing, enjoyable, and if desired, profitable art of photography.
Students Praise for Professional Photography Classes
Whitney O’Halek: Working with Jama was a dream! She listened to my personal photography needs and goals, and then gave me relevant tips, advice, and hacks to take my blogging photography to the next level! I absolutely recommend Jama’s photography lessons for anyone from aspiring professionals to people who just want to take better photos to hang on their own walls.
Lin Zabojnik: Jama’s friendly, approachable spirit is what first led me to her when I needed coaching for senior portraits. She is knowledgeable, experienced and has so many great tips! I give her credit for the amazing results I got when I put her suggestions into action! It made the photo shoot so much fun and relaxing for the young man I photographed. Looking forward to more coaching and shooting!
Gilberto Rodriquez (US Army/Kingsville Police Department): The best thing I’ve ever done in photography is learn how to get out of auto mode! Jama Pantel has provided that, and she is always eager to share her knowledge with anyone willing to learn. She is a highway of information in the world of photography. Jama has helped bring my photography IQ to a point where I’m developing my own photography business, and I have a photography Instagram account. If you want to learn photography, connecting with Jama Pantel is the right move!
Emily Prell: I always loved traveling and photography, but I only had a point-and-shoot camera for many years. When I decided to take the leap and get a DSLR, I didn’t know anything about cameras. I asked Jama for help with picking one out. She asked me what I would mostly be using it for and recommended a good starter one.
When it arrived, we went around town together several times with our cameras, and she taught me the basics of how to use it. Her method of teaching is patient and thorough and she explains things in ways that are easy to understand, even for a newbie. Since then, I’ve upgraded my camera and started collecting lenses, and every time I ask Jama for her advice. I’ve taken my hobby around the world, capturing art for my walls, and I’ve also done some second shooting at wedding and portraits for friends. I often ask Jama for her help choosing the right gear and settings for shoots, and she’s always willing to help and knows exactly what to do for every scenario. There’s no one else I’d trust more for photography help—from gear, to settings, to posing, and editing—Jama knows her stuff!
