Photography has progressed exponentially over the past century with the development of digital cameras, faster shutter speeds, and smiling. Capture the latest trends of emotional technology with today's Groupon: for $88, you get a full-day, hands-on basic photography workshop with internationally acclaimed photographer Brad Wrobleski from fotoscool (a $280 value). Full-day workshops are held at the West Vancouver Memorial Library and run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with a one-hour lunch break. This offer is valid for the following class dates:

  • Saturday, February 4

Wrobleski, a photographer for 25 years who has worked with publications such as National Geographic, Outdoor Photographer, and Newsweek, helms fotoscool’s basic photography workshop, teaching aspiring shutterbugs hands-on camera training to further their shooting expertise. During each full-day session, Wrobleski and his team of instructors introduce up to 80 students to digital SLR photography through expert instruction, interactive exercises, and bonding human-camera trust falls. Attendees should bring an digital SLR camera with a midrange lens, two memory cards, and two batteries. Learn to eschew the camera’s auto-programmed modes and discover the possibilities of the shutter, aperture, and manual modes that facilitate personalized picture-taking without the hassle of monogramming each pixel. A midsession lunch break serves as a respite for weary trigger fingers, and pupils can take a breath of fresh winter breezes during strolls through nearby Memorial Park or along the Sea Wall where further inspiration abounds.


Founded with the objective of simplifying the often overcomplicated art of digital photography, fotoscool employs a team of seasoned instructors—each a longtime professional with a celebrated career—to guide photography students through seminars and workshops held across the country. Keeping their overarching objective of simple-yet-entertaining instruction in mind, savvy teachers design each session to get participants on their feet with hands-on activities such as interactive exercises, on-location shoots in scenic locales, and bonding human-camera trust falls. In an effort to branch out of the classroom, fotoscool also periodically hosts tours that ferry photo enthusiasts to scenic far-flung locales for extended shooting lectures and on-site experience.
