“I just wanted to say thank you for the great class! I never took the time to really learn my digital camera and was always frustrated that it didn’t do what I learned how to do with my manual film camera. Now I am ready to enjoy photography again. ” 

“I learned how to use my digital camera properly!! And what ISO is. This has changed my use of my camera forever!”

“I was grateful to have a real live person to ask questions to, and to bounce ideas off of. It was a great workshop.”


An introductory photography class taught in the comfort of my very own home here in the Bay Area.  I’ll be offering it at various times throughout the year.   For upcoming dates and future announcements, join my email list by clicking the CONTACT link at the top of this page and leaving me your email.
