Bring a professional photographer with you on your next vacation. YOU! Digital cameras have made photography so accessible by putting cameras into virtually everyone’s hands. However, it can also become so overwhelming with so many buttons and knobs to push and turn you can become so confused that you throw up your hands and resort back to using only the fully auto setting. Does this sound like you? You’re not alone. Many people buy a camera only to find they only know how to use it as a point-n-shoot and still are not getting the photos they dream of taking. Become a very successful photographer that shoots and processes your photos like a pro. My programs will take your skills from where you are to achieving your photographic dreams. No previous knowledge or special equipment needed.
Shoot Like A Pro Photography Course: 12 hours of instruction and hands on experience during four classes. Through my personal attention to the info and skills that are important to you, you will learn to shoot like a pro. To insure personalized attention the courses are limited to 4 students. Classes are held at various locations in the San Fernando Valley. The course is designed for the SLR user who want to use more than the auto settings.
