Frequently Asked Questions

I’m interested in taking a class or workshop. Are there prerequisites for your classes?
We aren’t a traditional college or university, so there are no official prerequisites for any class. However, some of our intermediate and advanced classes require a basic understanding of photographic technologies. If you aren’t sure if you should sign up for a class, please contact us and we will be happy to advise you.

I want to learn photography but haven’t bought a camera yet. Can you help me decide what to buy?
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all camera that works for everyone, and different cameras & lenses are more suited to one speciality over another. For the purposes of taking our classes, you will need an SLR camera (digital full-frame preferred) capable of taking RAW images, at least one lens in the 35-50mm focal length range, and a sturdy tripod. Keep in mind that technology continues to advance, so we often recommend to invest in the best lenses you can afford and plan to upgrade your camera body every 3-5 years. For more specific information, please contact us and we will be happy to make recommendations.

I don’t see a class that teaches a subject I’m interested in. Can you still help me?
Yes! We are constantly adding new classes & workshops, and we’d love to hear your suggestions. Many of our instructors also offer Private Instruction, so please contact us with your specific subject and we will do our best to connect you with an instructor that can help.

Where are your classes held?
