Curious about the fundamentals of photography? Does your kid want to learn how to create photographs? 

With 20+ years of experience as a professional artist, I instruct this course from the perspective of experience and intuition, making the course accessible to individuals who are beginning their journey as Photographers. Foto Fundamentals is a 5-week online or in-person class, one day per week. You learn the base foundations that are taught in universities and community colleges, without the institutional fees. Here's what's included:

  • Private instruction, 3 hours per class

  • Learning how to shoot in manual mode

  • How to maneuver your body while shooting

  • Learning select language of photography

  • Understanding Lighting & Composition

  • Discussions on Ideation & Creative Process

If you're interested in a longer course or a one-day intensive or a fun group (up to 5 people) learning experience, those are class options as well. Here's what you'll need for any class structure you choose:

  • Digital Camera with at least one lens

  • Memory card(s) (starting off with one memory card is okay)

  • Up-to-date computer operating system and reliable internet access

  • Photography software (to download and review images)
