Since 1991, I have been offering photography programs to students in a friendly, casual atmosphere. Our classes have equal part instruction and hands-on experience. As a working professional, uses her experience of on-location assignments to aid the students in real life photographic situations.
Courses include: Digital Photography, Digital Photography and Using the Computer, Advanced Digital SLR Photography, and Composition. Below are descriptions of the listed courses.
i enjoy sharing the different techniques available, whether it is camera or photo editing. The main goal is to have students work with the camera in class so they are comfortable practicing and using it on their own. So it all just makes sense!
Shes a wonderful teacher. She walks you through each step and is there to assist when your stuck. If she realizes you are lost or do not understand the method she is extremely thorough and walks you through each step until its mastered. She also moves at your pace and only moves on to the next step until your comfortable. If she realizes your stumbling on a certain area she will look for ways to improve or simplify that step for you. Outstanding teacher cant say enough amazing things. Very patient and thorough.
Laurie is very creative and shares this with her students. She is also very patient and helpful every step if the way. I want to continue to learn from her as she has so much to teach. Absolutely love her and I feel lucky to have found her to teach me.
The directions are simple and clear. The accompanying photos are beautiful and inspiring and clearly illustrate the goal of the lesson. I will use this as a reference and review as well as a learning tool. It is professional and polished, yet easy to follow.
I gave learned such an incredible amount from Laurie and my photography shows it. She has an emense amount of knowledge and tricks on how to improve your picture taking. Her creativity and passion for photography is contagious. I enjoy all her classes
We determine together what the student has tried, did any pitfalls happen, what did the "bad photo" look like. Then we start to fix it or begin to learn it. I can have new students understand the camera and use Manual Mode successfully.
