Fundamentals 1:  Camera Operations   is for students who are just starting out, or want a good review of the basic camera functions. 

Fundamentals 2:  Applications  is for students who have some comfort with the camera and want to start applying their skills to expand their photographic range.

Fundamentals 4:  Lighting Across the Genres is for students who are  ready for the next critical step: lighting.  Explore sophisticated means of controlling both natural and artificial light for portraits, landscape and still life to get just the mood and effects you want.

Please Note:  New Cancellation Policy


As we transition to this phase of providing photography instruction both in-person and on-line, we are instituting a new policy covering cancelled lesson.


Students are asked to provide at least 24 hour notice when an appointment cannot kept.  

When a lesson is cancelled with less than 24 hour notice, students have the option of rescheduling for a $10 rescheduling fee.  If no make-up session is scheduled, however, the full amount of the missed lesson will still be charged.


Exceptions in the case of emergencies will be determined by Owen on a case by case basis.
