I know you're interested. You're thinking about it.... you know you need to learn how to use your camera OR you've been tempted to buy a nicer camera for a while now. Here are 10 really great reasons why you should sign up RIGHT NOW!

Reason #10 - Learn the ins and outs of your camera and take your photography to the next level. Challenge yourself by continuing your education in photography!

Reason #9 - See behind the scenes of a photography business. If you're considering a career in photography, this is a great way to test it out and you can ask us anything!

Reason #8 - It's hands on learning, a live photo shoot, live lighting demonstrations, practical applications for different photography tips.

Reason #7 - After this class you will feel inspired. You'll learn new things, try new things, network with other photographers and get excited about photography!

Reason #6 - This time around the classes will take place at the Hilton Garden Inn, conveniently located in downtown Yakima. If you're coming from out of town, it's easy to find, you can stay there, eat there, and even visit the Ummelina spa that's in the same building :)

Reason #5 - If you've been stuck in the same spot with your picture taking for months and you've googled your questions but can't find the help you need..... This is the solution! Talk with us and ask us your questions about photography IN PERSON.

Reason #4 - This is your source for digital photography classes in Yakima, WA. Other than signing up for a college course, this is the best way to learn how to use your camera, take better photos, and jump start your hobby or part-time photography job.

Reason #3 - If you skip this one, another class will not roll around for another 4 months or more (we only offer classes 2 times per year)

Reason #2 - THE PRIZES!!!! Because we are sponsored by White House Custom Colour, we have some really awesome prizes to giveaway at all three classes! In the past we have given press printed albums, business cards, canvases, + mounted prints as door prizes in each of the classes!

Photography 101 class description:
This class introduces you to photography fundamentals, composition, and the use of light. We will help you understand your basic camera function and camera settings (like aperture, shutter speed, and ISO). This class is for the beginner photographer with an SLR camera. (If you need help choosing a camera, read more about our camera suggestions here.) This class is perfect for anyone who has a love for photography and is ready to take their skill to the next level. If you've ever said, "I have a nice camera, but I don't know how to use it!" THIS is the class for you!

Photography 102 class description:
This class is an extension of photography 101. It will give you even more time to process and solidify some basic camera functions and photography topics. This class also touches on workflow, posing, and client interaction. It is for the beginner to intermediate photographer. During this class we will have the opportunity to photograph a live model, talk about our exact lighting and camera settings, and edit a photo together in Lightroom. We will also do live demonstrations of client interaction and posing.

Advanced Lighting class description:
You've asked, so here it is! A unique class solely devoted to lighting options and techniques. We will cover everything from natural light, to off camera flash setups, studio lighting, and more. Learn specific tips and tricks for lighting in different scenarios while watching live examples and demonstrations that you can put to use in the field. This class is for the intermediate to advanced photographer. We will expect that you have a good grasp on camera settings and are looking to expand your lighting knowledge.

What to expect: A casual, creative atmosphere of photography discussion.  We will provide notes, refreshments and sweet giveaways.  All you need to bring is your camera! These classes are geared more towards those interested in photographing people. Everyone will benefit  from the classes if they're looking to learn their camera settings, but we talk a lot about how to efficiently photograph and interact with your subjects.
