How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field?
As opposed to the more "technical" approach of most photography courses, we offer clear and easy to understand "how-to" instructions. We teach you how to achieve a great portrait without running you through the rigmarole of explaining every single camera button/function while leaving you overwhelmed with information and still not knowing how to take a portrait. With our online course, you receive simple and concise instructions on what you need to know and do (including everything from knowing how the camera works to understanding different lighting situations and post production).
The course covers the basics of portrait photography and is perfect for photography beginners and amateurs that want to take more professional pictures or wish to launch a portrait business. The course is designed to be completed over a six-week period, however, students can finish the course at their own pace. The course includes a weekly reading assignment, photo assignment, quiz, and discussion board. There are also a number of educational videos included in the course.
Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education with specialization in Photography.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I have had a passion for teaching since I was a child, but when I took my first black and white film photography course in college I instantly fell in love and haven't stopped taking photographs since.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
This is a great course for individuals who just bought their first digital SLR and want to know how to take great pictures, or for amateur photographers interested in improving their photography skills. This is also a great course for mothers interested in photographing their children (as well as save dollars normally spent at a local studio) so that they can create valuable memories that have a professional touch. Also, the course caters to individuals interested in starting a photography business. It provides helpful resources for creating websites and writing up contracts and other important photography documents; information about marketing and branding your business; what equipment to purchase and where to purchase it; and getting the word out about your business.
UFC Gym's staff features a team of professional fighters who come from backgrounds as boxers, mix martial artists, professional Muy Thai fighters, and Bruce Banners at its many area locations.The proprietary style of the UFC Gym workout is a mixture of genuine fight training and engaging fitness routines, designed to help clients use fitness techniques to reach their health goals. Clients can burn 800 to 1,000 calories during these total-body routines, which combine external inspiration and jukes, jabs, and kicks that the instructors demonstrate as students practice techniques on 150-pound punching bags. The facility includes a regulation-sized boxing ring, quarter octagon, full weight room, cardio equipment, and showers for both men and women. Session sizes are kept small, ensuring personal attention and manageable battle-royale numbers.
Like UFC Gym, the boxing arena is no slouch when it comes to fitness: fight-centric gyms ditch the polished look of wood-floored workout studios for gritty, competitive spaces filled with 150-pound punching bags and intense workouts. Like a baker molding gingerbread men, UFC Gym sculpts six-packs with boxing, kickboxing, and mixed-martial-arts classes, and additionally, most experience boosted self-confidence after conquering their first class. Private training sessions further stoke courage with workouts that leave patrons with the exhilaration of having survived 12 rounds in the ring or five minutes in a high-school lunchroom.
The world is a playground, according to the stunt artists and gymnasts who helm Urban Evolution. At this CNN- and Channel 11 WBAL -featured gym, there are no treadmills or stationary bikes. Instead, dance-like movements and acrobatic leaps propel visitors toward apexes of fun and fitness. To ready physiques for such feats, ropes, trapezes, and gymnastics equipment facilitate body-weight exercises that build balance, flexibility, and coordination. Seasoned instructors oversee the training space, teaching students how to jump, climb, crawl, and tumble as safely as possible during movement-focused classes such as Parkour, Free Running, and Aerial Acrobatics. Kettlebells and other functional strength-training tools power UrbanFit conditioning workouts, which give participants the brawn to perform everyday tasks such as pushing lawnmowers, lifting grocery bags, and drawing sleighs filled with lazy reindeer.
