Landers Photography School hosts a minimum of 150 seminars and workshops each year, during which participants can learn how to professionally man cameras and use lighting equipment and a variety of lenses through lectures, discussion, and hands-on application. Professional photographers also lead seminars covering more specific themes such as Getting to Know Your Camera, Taking Better Vacation Pictures, and Portraits, as well as workshops on photo manipulation with Photoshop and on-location photo shoots of families. Burgeoning shutterbugs may sharpen skills during a six-week Intro to Photography class, where students explore the general landscape of photographic equipment and technique, aperture and shutter control, basic exposure, focus control, depth-of-field, motion capture, and basic composition theory.
