DUE TO THE PHENOMENAL RESPONSE TO THIS CLASS, A NEW DATE HAS BEEN OPENED UP! WE'VE ADDED THREE MORE CLASSES ON SATURDAY JUNE 4TH!
There's not much that excites us more than sharing what we know with people who want to take their photography to the next level, which is why we put together a Beginner Photography Course. This is a class for people who just moved up from the land of point and shoot cameras and into the magical world of DSLR cameras (the ones that have interchangeable lenses) or any camera that let's YOU control the shot.
When we put these classes on, our only form of advertising is usually Facebook, word of mouth and of course this blog, but THIS time, GROUPON has decided to feature our class this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday! Thats means there will be around 600,000 Groupon emails going out to people in the Edmonton area over three days. Crazy. So what does this mean for you?
Well, normally the class costs $350 per person, but because of the large audience that Groupon provides, we're able to drop the price down to $79! If you're not signed up with Groupon, nows the time! Click HERE to sign up.
So here's a little FAQ:
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 cameras.
What will I learn? The four 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 (which includes learning how to choose the right equipment) 4. post processing like a pro (how to take a good photo and make it incredible!)
The great thing about this class is that what we are teaching will be very useful information to both beginners as well as more advanced shooters. Everything that we are teaching came from our own experience as professional photographers a 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!
We'll be covering all these topics both in the classroom as well as out in the incredibly photogenic area of Jasper Ave!
What do I need to bring? - a digital camera that has the ability to be fully controlled by the photographer - This includes all DSLR cameras (the ones with interchangeable lenses) and any digital 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 a laptop if you're feeling fancy, but keep in mind that we'll be heading outside for a portion of the class)
Where and when? We're REALLY excited about the location we were able to get for this class! It will be held in the lower section of the brand new Transcend Coffee on Jasper Ave (10349 Jasper Avenue Edmonton, AB T5J 1Y5). So when you walk in, just stroll right on through the main seating area(after you grab an INCREDIBLE cup of coffee of course) and go down the set of stairs.
