Your Photography Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do photography classes cost?

Photography classes cost $80 to $300 at a local photography center, museum, or online course provider. A beginner photography course at a university costs $250 to $500+, while the cost for a photography degree program is $10,000 to $30,000 per year on average.

Prices depend on the type of class, skill level, and your location. A basic Introduction to Photography class typically costs less than advanced classes or workshops taught by an experienced photographer.

Why take photography classes, and are they worth it?

A photography class is worth it if you want to master your camera, learn new techniques, and gain the ability to capture moments in exciting, memorable images. You do not need to be an aspiring professional photographer or artist to benefit from a class.

You'll learn to observe the world around you in new ways and develop an eye for details, light, color, shape, and texture. Through expert feedback from the instructor, you'll identify areas where you need improvement and become a better photographer as a result.

What do you learn in a photography class?

A beginner photography class teaches basic camera skills and techniques, including:

  • The exposure triangle—aperture, shutter speed, and ISO—and how each setting affects motion, depth of focus, and noise in your images
  • Light and how it affects your photos
  • Composition techniques, the Rule of Thirds, and leading lines
  • Color, shape, and texture
  • White balance
  • Lenses and filters

More advanced photography classes teach post-processing techniques in Photoshop, Lightroom, or other similar photo editing programs. Post-processing techniques include color correction, retouching, adjusting contrast and sharpness, and more.

Advanced courses may also focus on a specific type of photography, such as landscape photography, portrait photography, or street photography

Do I need my own camera to take a photography class?

Most photography classes require you to bring your own camera. However, if you're interested in exploring photography before investing in your own camera gear, consider taking a class anyway. Whether you take photos with your cellphone or a high-end digital camera, you can benefit from the skills learned in the class.

During the class, you'll learn not just how to take great photos but also about the features you'd like in a more complex camera, as well as the best lenses and filters for the type of photography you're interested in. This knowledge will better prepare you for the expensive purchase.

Can you take photography classes online?

Yes, you can take photography classes online through universities, web course providers like CreativeLive and SkillShare, and a wide variety of websites dedicated specifically to photography. Most sites offer both beginner photography classes and a vast selection of intermediate and advanced classes focused on specific types or aspects of photography.

Where can I take photography classes near me?

Keep these tips in mind when choosing a photography class:

  • Look for a course targeted toward photographers at your skill level. Advanced photographers may want to consider taking a workshop with a specific photographer instead of a class.
  • Decide if you want to take a class that focuses on a specific style or type of photography.
  • Read the instructor's reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Check out the instructor's portfolio, as well as portfolios from previous students.

What questions should I ask photography instructors?

Ask the instructor these questions before enrolling in the class:

  • What skill level is this class designed for?
  • What topics will the class cover?
  • Do I need to bring my own camera?
  • Where will the class meet?
  • Will the class include instructor feedback?
  • Will you share our photos on the school website or social media?

Rob has a great way of breaking down concepts and making things easy to understand, especially for novices (wannabe hobbyists) like myself. You can tell he has a wealth of experience, however, he never talks down to you. He really is interested in helping you enjoy photography the way he does. I can’t wait until the next time I have the time to take another class.
