This Class Is For You

If you take photos with your phone then this class is for you! There are two opportunities to take this class. Sign up for Sunday Nov 7th or Friday Nov 12th. I promise you that if you use your phone to take pictures that you will really enjoy this class. As with all of my classes I focus on teaching you the fundamentals of photography rather than gimmicks and tricks that only work if the conditions are right. With the photography skills you'll learn in this class you will be able to solve problems when you encounter them and that, to me, is what learning is for.

All Ages And Skill Levels

Everyone, no matter their age or abilities will benefit from this class.

This class will help you understand the science and craft of photography, how to avoid hype from phone sellers, how to edit your photos on your phone, and how to share them on social media or elsewhere.

My Teaching Style

I recognize that everyone learns differently and my teaching style takes this into account. This class will be part lecture with slides and part practical experience. My goal is to make sure my classes are enjoyable, interactive, and informative. I want you to feel engaged, to participate, and to feel like you learned what you came to learn. Learning is a collaborative process. We're in this together so I ask that you work with me and let me know if you're not following anything I'm teaching and expect that I'll be checking in with you during the class if you look like you don't understand. Your satisfaction is important to me.
