We've received a lot of emails since our last Beginner Photography Class, so we know there are a bunch of you out there who have been waiting for this announcement! Dates for the 2015 Beginner Photography Class have just been released! Golly... this sure would make a perfect Christmas gift, wouldn't it? Why I think it would! :)

Workshops // Fall Beginner Photography Classes

The kids are in school, the leaves are starting to turn and it's just plain beautiful outside. If you're anything like me (and I know I am...), your shutter finger is getting twitchy. I don't think there's another time of year where I'm more likely to bring one of our cameras along with me when I head out the door. I love fall and I think it's the perfect time to explore the craft of photography! If you remember a little blog entry I posted this past spring - right after our last beginner class - I mentioned that even though our schedules are crazy this year I couldn't imagine not offering the class again - it's just too much fun! Well I'm so happy to make good on that promise and release the next Beginner Photography Class date!

Check out the rest of the post for more info and to reserve your spot.

The entire class will be taught using our 70 year old 4x5 camera! Just kidding...

So here's the rundown:

Who is this class for? This class is for people who want to capture the world around them in a beautiful, striking and creative way using their digital or film cameras.

What will I learn? Ryan will cover the key elements of creating great, meaningful photographs 1. being there and being ready 2. seeing the light (how your camera sees it) 3. knowing your gear and how to take control of it; which includes how to shoot manually, learning what aperture, shutter and ISO really do for you and the image YOU want to capture/create, and how to choose the right equipment 4. post processing like a pro (how to take a good photo and make it incredible!)

Why choose this class over others? The great thing about this class is that what Ryan's teaching will be very useful information to both beginners as well as more advanced shooters. It all comes from our own experience as working professional photographers as well as from what we've picked up in the classes we've attended over the years, hosted by some of the best photographers in the world. So there's lots to learn for everyone!

Small Class Sizes! You won't be stuck in a pack of 200 other students, sitting 50 feet away from your instructors. We cap our classes at 7 people which puts you right in the action and gives you plenty of opportunities to ask questions and have first hand instruction throughout the class.

We get you out of your seat - camera in hand - to begin putting your new knowledge to use straight away! Forget about the classrooms and notepads for a while and join us for a real world photo walk.

Four solid hours of classroom/shooting time and a small 7 person class size makes for an incredible learning environment!

What do I need to bring? - a digital or film camera that has the ability to be fully controlled by the photographer - This includes all DSLR and SLR cameras (the ones with interchangeable lenses) and any camera with a full manual control setting. - your cameras owners manual - this isn't an absolute necessity, but it may come in handy! - any lenses or flashes that you'd like to use though out the class - a note pad and pen or laptop Where? Our home studio in the heart of Edmonton, Alberta.

When? Sunday October 6th, 2013 at 1pm

Beginner Photography Classes // A Beautiful Day

The forecast said it would rain, rain, rain.. and then we had the most beautiful spring day you could imagine. A few Sundays ago I had the pleasure of teaching our Beginner Photography Class to the seven awesome women below. It was a great afternoon of learning and shooting.

But now I'm a bit annoyed...

Beginner-Photography-Class-2

Why? Well when I put this class together I told myself (and the rest of the world) that this would be the last Beginner Class I would teach due to how busy our schedules are now a days. The annoying part is that I really really enjoy teaching people photography and honestly don't want to stop. Showing people how to take control of the photographic process, how to pre visualize your shot, how to look for leading lines and points of interest, to turn off those auto modes on their cameras and go full manual ... the list goes on. I love it.

So all this is to say that I am going to be teaching more Beginner Photography Classes in the future...because I want to. :)

I'm not sure when the next one will be, but if you're interested in attending just shoot us an email through our connect page and we'll notify you when it's announced!
