Be the boss of your camera!

If you’re going to spend your time sitting through a class it better be worth it, right? That’s how I feel too!
Your camera is an amazing piece of equipment, but figuring out this crap can be paralyzing when it’s supposed to be fun.
I teach these classes like I talk with my friends, I don’t lecture you. If you want to know how to get that soft, blurry background in your pictures, I’ll tell you what lens to put on, and what setting to use! You and I are going to have a CONVERSATION with each other – you are a part of this process.
 I’m here to make it easy for you to learn something new, feel confident, and have fun in the process — and the next time your camera comes out of its bag, you’ll be ready to kick butt and take names. BOOM! Check out the six classes below to find your perfect fit!
