desire + knowledge = impact

Is your photography stuck in a place without a lot of impact?

Before photo

This family snapshot has simple things that could have helped it capture more of the story of the moment.

Every common technique here will be taught from their foundation.

This image has more impact. No fancy jargon needed to explain why or how.

Get exposures right every time. Know how to make decisions about placing the camera.

Mark will cover the beginning-to-end on how to get the exposure correct in camera. He’ll explain how to use the gear you already own to get more impacting images of your family or clients.

If you own a camera that has a Manual dial and think photography is extremely enjoyable then this class is for you.
