The party host kept snapping shots, instantly uploading each picture onto his television. It was the early 1990s, and to T.J. Gillespie⎯who had dabbled in photography until breaking a lens and camera⎯digital photography seemed like a magic trick. T.J. now teaches that magic trick, using a full-frame Nikon D600, to students during three-hour group or freeform one-on-one sessions. He emphasizes hands-on practice over long lectures, harnessing his teaching experience from years as a full-time computer-software instructor to patiently guide pupils through locating and adjusting aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. By spending time outdoors, T.J.'s apprentices discover how to work around various light conditions and how to capture subjects in focus while the background is out of focus.

    “I am writing on behalf of my wife; she received this class as a gift to accompany her DSLR camera. Prior to the class she had little photography experience. She very much enjoyed the class and learned much more than she had hoped. Although a novice she did not feel the class was beyond her and Mr. Gillespie spoke not only about the technical elements of taking photographs but also the artistic elements. She would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to learn more about digital photography. ”
