What you'll learn in this photography class:

Working with our professional portrait photography instructors, we will guide you step by step through the process and teach you how to bring out the best in your natural light portrait photos. Learn how to pose your subjects, choose pleasing backgrounds and avoid harsh shadows.

Learn how to:
  • Find the right light for great exposures
  • Pose subjects in attractive ways
  • Work with your subject for great smiles and candid moments
  • Find pleasing and complimentary backgrounds
  • Avoid harsh shadows
This class starts with a 30 minute classroom session to teach you about your camera and the ideal settings we'll use during the 2+ hour shoot with our models. We will setup a wide variety of photography situations to illustrate how to read light, pose the models and come away with quality images you can be proud of.

This class is tailored toward beginners and is perfect for those who are looking to improve their portrait photos of children, family, pets and more!

Note: If students have a camera, bring it! Students also have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with the instructor if they are in the market for a DSLR camera if they're in the market for one.

Although we email each student the Power Point presentation, they might consider taking additional notes during the class.

First we'll tell you what we are NOT about... we aren't going to lead you on a cookie cutter, photography-in-a-can style photo tour where the instructor is off taking his own pictures while students are left to their own luck hoping they can capture a good image. Our instructors don't focus on their...
