  1. I am interested in taking the fundamentals course and am wondering if you will be offerring classes throughout the summer. I am a public schools employee and can’t afford the time to take a class until the summertime. Thanks!

  2. Hi Marilen, my name is Jennifer Riddick and I spoke with you over the phone about a week ago. I was just wondering when I would be able to register for the May 17th photography class?

    1. It is. There are settings that you may not be using that we can help you with. The fundamentals will also help you make a more informed decision if you ever upgrade your equipment. Hope you can join us sometime!

  3. I am interested in all the photography classes, in time that is. I have a Nikon D3200 with extra 50mm lens. I understand my camera pretty well but I want to get better at it. Does the initial $175 pay for all the classes minus individual tours with instructor? Or what does that cover?

    1. That covers only the Fundamentals for a lifetime. Most take the class several times a year because it is the class that really helps you to master the calculations used in manual settings. It is our pre-requisite to other advanced classes. Feel free to call with more questions at 757-768-9033 🙂
