Beginner Photography Class {Calgary Photographer}


I am so happy to announce the next Beginner Photography Class. These classes are so much fun! It truly is like a girls night out 🙂 I LOVE teaching them and was going to wait until after Christmas to offer the next class, but have received emails from so many of you over the last few weeks that I thought we could squeeze in a class before Christmas. Which means we will also cover some awesome tips for Christmas photos (getting some cool shots of the Christmas tree, Christmas morning photo tips as well as a little December challenge to capture all the fun of the season!)

These classes typically sell out quickly, and I am anticipating the same this time around- especially with the wait list inquiries… if you are interested please don’t wait too long to sign up!

DATE: Monday Novemeber 25th 2013
TIME: 6:30-9:30 pm
WHERE: Midnapore SE, Calgary. Address and details to follow for those registered.
DETAILS: This class is designed especially for Moms who have a fancy camera and have no idea how to use it.  It’s also for you if you love taking pictures and would like some tips on how to better document the joy that is your family. To be able to better capture all those little moments that make up the beauty of your family. The Everyday Joys. The kids making a snowman. Family pizza night. His grin with his missing teeth. Her twirling in her tutu. All the little moments you’ll want to remember forever!

In the first half of the class we will cover the basic settings of your camera (all those confusing terms- aperture, ISO, shutter speed) and how to use them all together. We’ll talk about light and how to capture it beautifully. What time of day is best for pictures, how to capture sun-flare, where in your home you should try to shoot from… etc. We’ll cover composition, lenses and a few other technical topics.

The second part of the class will cover how to better capture your own family. Tips on how to get real, authentic pictures of your little loves. Ideas on how to engage your kids (at any age). With four kids myself I know the challenges of getting a decent shot with all of them together, I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve that will really help get those “money” shots.
And most importantly we will go over a few ideas to help change the way you document your family.  This is where you will grow from taking just a snapshot, to really capturing the moment.

You DO NOT need to have a fancy DSLR camera to attend (although it will be helpful for the camera settings part of the course)

The class will be 3 hours long. With some yummy snacks and drinks (of course!)
There will also be time to answer questions and you will also receive reference material to take home.

$175 per seat
$125 per seat if booking with a friend (save $50!)
Fee is non-refundable, however can be transferred to another class date.


Sorry! This class is now SOLD OUT.

The next class will be held on Monday Feb 3rd, 2014
