Hands-on class starting from the most basic settings on a DSLR camera and working up to studio lighting and editing
Small class size with other local photographers of all experience levels
6 week class, held once a week
Weekly homework that is peer-reviewed to track progress in your photography
NO online lessons. This is personalized education, tailored to each individual's camera.
We have a Facebook group for people to ask questions or to share images during the week.
Ask any question without fear. You are in a room with people who are just like YOU. People who are anxious to learn, but aren't getting what they need from online resources.
Jeff is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. He truly wants everyone to succeed and enjoy their photography pursuits. The classroom experience was very casual and friendly.
Jeff is extremely knowledgeable and patient. It's obvious, too, that he genuinely cares about his students and wants them to enjoy photography.
Highly recommend- Jeff is an excellent teacher! His photographic expertise, broad knowledge, friendly personality, ability to articulate, and patience adds up to a happy learning experience.
Jeff is fun, creative and an excellent photographer. He has expert knowledge about all aspects of Photography and has a passion for teaching it to others. I was a little more experienced entering his beginner class but ended up learning so much from him. His passion and creativity re-sparked mine and his knowledge helped to bring my photography to the next level. I would recommend anyone who wants to learn about how your camera works and how to see the world through the lens to sign up for his class, you won't be disappointed. The great thing is the community of photographers that is building from these classes to continue to shoot, share and learn together. What a fun time!!
Each new student gets a notebook tailored to their specific camera and worksheets/handouts for each week. These assist in learning the process of photography from the ground up during our in class lecture/disccussion/hands-on training.
I have been around photography for the majority of my life. My father was a Nikon award-winning photographer and passed much of his knowledge on to me through the same hands-on training I offer my students.
6 week group class is $200 for the class.
One on one private lessons (an intensified 3 day version of the group class) is $500.
When I was looking at assisting a friend of mine with her photography, I realized that most photography training online is taught from the perspective that you already know what the instructor is talking about.
I decided to teach photography from the most basic level and work up to advanced techniques in a very short time. This has proved to be a successful method of teaching new and "less technical" photographers.
I have worked with students of all ages (15-70) and from all professions and experience levels.
Our classes are all unique in that there is a comraderie that happens in the classes. We are now planning "Alumni Photo Walks" with all of our current and former students!
Know what you're getting. If you're looking to start your photography CORRECTLY and get out of "Auto" on your camera, that's where you should start. That's what I offer my students.
