  • "Incredible experience with Pixelife. With no photography experience, I asked Evan to teach me the basics. His knowledge and passion for photography exceeded my expectations. I left today’s lesson with knowledge I will be able to build my photography skills on for life. A friendly, humble and punctual person, I would not hesitate to recommend Evan not only for a photography lesson, but to shoot an important event. Thank you Evan!”
