Why sign your child up for Private Photography Lessons?

Just like you’d sign your child up for piano lessons, our photography lessons work similarly following the school year & summer sessions. We begin by building a basic foundation while asking students to practice & complete assignments prior to each lesson. Every lesson will begin by reviewing the assignment & discussing whether the student achieved the objective.

Individual Classes for Adults

Individual classes are 90 minutes and curriculum is based on individual needs. Adult classes are $150 per lesson.

Private Photography Lessons for Teens

Classes ages 8-12; 45 minutes. You’ll need a DSLR (camera body, lens & flash card) in order to practice assignments. Ideally you’ll download your images to a computer for review. $350/ 4 classes

Zoom Lessons are also available as needed by appointment.

Who’s ready to get their camera out of program mode & start exploring!?!
