$39 for a Photography Workshop at the University Guest House & Conference Center on Wednesday, August 22, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. ($229 Value)

Professional photographer and creative dynamo Chris Keating shares his expert technical knowledge and infectious zeal for the visual arts with aspiring shooters in Betterphoto Workshop's all-day workshops. Each four-hour romp through the universe of photo making gives participants a crash course in proper shooting, instilling the ABCs and ROYGBIVs of general photography. Eye-opening tutorials include navigating capture lags, calibrating exposure settings, and understanding the rules of composition, which dictate that one can only take pictures of symmetrical faces.

In addition to shooting techniques, students learn how to use digital cameras effectively and handle photo equipment with care. With a conscientious interest in fielding questions and an animated-but-casual teaching style, Chris believes he can help anyone be a better everyday paparazzo no matter what kind of camera they walk in with.

Betterphoto Workshop

Reflecting on this childhood, Chris Keating sometimes feels as if he didn't exist. His parents' divorce left him with very little tangible evidence of his formative years, so he's spent his adult life as a photographer making sure children can look back fondly at warm family memories. Chris Keating and his Calgary staff have made this a reality for more than 3,000 families since opening the doors to Towne Photography in 2006. There, the professional photographic crew shoots posed and candid shots of families, children, couples, and babies at picturesque parks or against their studio backdrops, and they also snap triumphant graduate portraits, intimate prenatal shots, and provocative passport pics that make border crossing a breeze. Their ironclad guarantee allows unsatisfied clients to request reshoots, reprints, or resizing on all photographs, and they vow to remake or recapture any artwork that sustains damage over the years. Chris also takes his photographic knowledge on the road to conduct Betterphoto Workshops across the United States and Canada, teaching novice photographers how to artistically preserve their most precious memories.
