Success starts with You…

Our mission is to always provide our students with outstanding personalized mentoring and instruction. We have been privileged to have met and worked with really talented and eager to learn photographers. This summer we are so excited about our new location in Port Warwick and upcoming classes and workshops… we feel like we are in photography heaven!!

Look for an E-Magazine starting soon and ways to get more involved in our programs! Thanks for all the support and the patronage. Sincerely, Marilen + VAPC

Welcome New Apprentices 03/15

We are excited to accept two new apprentices to our program: Beth Waller and Valerie Adams.  Both are very well suited to achieve great success and we wish them all the best in their studies. The goal for all apprentices is to be a self-sufficient professional photographer with a solid portfolio and business plan.

**********

We are currently interviewing for 2 more professional photography apprentices but the accepted applicants will be put on our delayed start list to start in June 2015. This process is highly involved and interviewing early will help those accepted time to gather their information and follow up materials by the start date.

Teen Photography Camp 2014

CAMP GROUP SHOT 01

Instructor: Marilen Crump vaphotoclass@gmail.comAssistant: Elizabeth Kasten

Our students were brilliant and our week was filled with collaboration, learning and discovery! We covered photography lessons ranging from composition and exposure to post-processing and display applications. The location was absolutely beautiful and a multitude of great images to capture. We thank James City County Parks and Recreation for choosing Freedom Park as our location for the camp. (If you haven’t visited there, we highly recommend taking a trip to this wonderful park.) We can’t wait until next time!
