About The Event

Basically, how do you manage without the studio and its controllability, and end up satisfied with an expressive and successful portrait?  Come along and learn how, all with your own camera in this 2-hour workshop. Have fun together, play together, and learn to capture wonderful memories for life.   

Make sure you have plenty of space on your memory cards and your batteries are charged. If you do not have a camera, please contact us before the course and we will bring one along for you to borrow.  Just make sure you bring your own memory card to take your photos home with you. If you have a zoom lens it is perfect for this workshop so bring it along with you. 

I keep classes small - only two families per course due to the Coronavirus.  We usually have six per workshop.
