We offer classes for every experience level, and each class is genre specific. All classes are first-come, first-served, so please show up on time. If you have specific questions about a class feel free to reach out to staff with any questions.



Level  I


I just purchased or am planning to purchase a digital camera. I need help deciding what to buy. I want to learn how to expose and compose pictures properly. I don’t understand the relationship between shutter speed, aperture, and ISO, so I only use my camera when everything is set on automatic. The only flash I use is the flash that came with my camera. I want to make good photographs, but I’m not really sure where to begin.

Level  II


I know how to operate my camera. I know how to control depth of field and how to vary my shutter speed and aperture in manual mode. I have taken a few good pictures in the past, but I can’t seem to make them on a consistent basis. I have several filters, but I’m not using them effectively. I use off camera flash but am confused as to how to control the light levels with my flash. I have started working with people as subjects, but need more help on posing. I know about post-production editing and use software to edit my images however I would like to learn more. I could use some help in improving my compositions, and I’m not sure how to take advantage of good lighting conditions.  

Level III

I am an experienced shooter.
I know how to use filters creatively to give me the effect I am looking for. I can easily choose various combinations of shutter speed, aperture, and ISO to achieve my desired outcome. I can consistently make strong images under varying lighting conditions. I want to learn more about advanced lighting techniques and postproduction. However, I am in a bit of a rut, and am looking for some new ideas to take my photography to the next level.
