JP has been a professional photographer since 2006. His images have been published by The New York Times, GQ, New York Magazine, Women’s Wear Daily, The New York Observer, The Village Voice and Time Out New York.

In addition to being really knowledgeable about photography, JP can also teach classes on how to make a mango guacamole that will blow your socks off. When he’s not teaching, you might find JP playing Shanghai rum with his grandmother and, despite what she’ll tell you, he doesn’t cheat.

Lydia Billings

Lydia fell in love with photography as a child, wandering through the country side in upstate New York. She was totally fascinated with light and the way it interacted with objects in nature, like water and plants. In high school she experienced being in the darkroom for the first time and couldn’t have been happier! She knew at that moment that she was a photographer and needed to pursue it professionally. She even built a darkroom in her parents’ basement!

Lydia earned a BFA in Fine Art Photographic Illustration from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2013. She has been living and working in NYC as a photographer, model, anti-violence advocate, and a teacher for JP Teaches Photo ever since! Her work has been published widely online and has been exhibited at numerous venues and events. To see some of her work, please visit: lydiabillings.com.

Lydia loves teaching private classes because she loves people! She sees each lesson as an adventure and an opportunity to share and celebrate her students’ love for photography and learning. When she’s not teaching, you can find Lydia doing yoga, making photographs outside, listening to NPR, or eating sushi!
