Beginner Photography Classes and Photo Safaris are offered throughout the year. Contact the studio for current class information and details. (I get a lot of slack from other professional photographers for offering these classes…but I do feel it’s important to share the gift of photography with anyone that wants to learn. This allows me an opportunity to photograph “just for fun” which is so important as an Artist to Grow and Learn Continually.) I also believe that you will still come and see me for your Professional Portraits…but in the mean time…get your cameras out…and let’s Capture some Great images together!

Our workshop classes have been updated!  Cost: $99/class.  A minimum number of students are required so advanced registration and payment is required.  Bring your camera and manual.  Questions?  Call the studio at 301.393.4515.

**Please review Schedule below…and know that we add additional workshops all the time…To make the most of your learning…we also offer a One-Day Saturday Workshop Bootcamp…getting several classes in back to back on one day…with small breaks…Call the studio for more information…
