You Can Learn Photography

Everyone has a reason for picking up a camera. Although the reasons vary, all share a common goal: they want their images to “look awesome.” Regardless of the photos you want to make, you must be capable in two areas before impressive photos begin to show up consistently: ONE, knowing how to use a camera, and TWO, understanding how to put pictures together.

Answering the call, the Beginner Photography Series is a modular course that seamlessly blends the technical and expressive aspects of using a camera. Whether new, stuck on AUTO, or ready to grow creatively, the Beginner Series offers a lot to enthusiasts and budding pros.

Welcome to Shutterbug

Beginner ONE is foundational and is ideal if you are starting or stuck on Auto. Designed to get you confidently shooting in Manual, this class teaches you how to take control of your camera and use it for more intentional photographs.



Beginner TWO focuses on the expressive side of using a camera, supplying a practical and creative approach to better picture design and image editing. This class is also great for smartphone photography because composition works with any camera.

Four a Good Time

Photography is FUN when you know what you’re doing; learning it should be too.

The Beginner Photography Series offers a fresh approach to understanding camera operation and picture composition. Each course consists of 4-weekly in-person sessions with home practice exercises that slowly introduce and reinforce the topics discussed.

A college degree in photography isn’t necessary to get great images, but you need more than a few-hour introduction or crash course for real results. Plus, you will have plenty of access to the instructor to ask questions and gain valuable feedback on your progress.

Can’t make all four dates? No worries — jump in on another session that week or catch next month’s class.

Small In-Person Classes

No lectures here — each course is limited to only ten seats to encourage interaction between students and the instructor. Small class sizes also allow for clarification of the material and address any questions you may have at that time.
