Flashes flicker from coast to coast in StacksPhoto's classes. Photographers of all experience levels learn fundamental lessons on evocative composition, balancing light and dark, and capturing memorable shots without photographing National Geographic covers. Other lessons include how to make the most of a camera’s manual mode, understanding basic optics, and how lens choice can affect an image. Besides in-person classes, StacksPhoto also offers a DVD filled with such tips.
Photographer Jacqueline Meeks has been behind the camera lens since 1994. Over the years, she's mastered many styles of photography, including wedding shoots. With an eye for stylish composition, Jacqueline guides newlyweds through flattering poses during portrait times and family formals. For most of the ceremony and reception, however, she recedes into the background, unobtrusively capturing candid, intimate moments among the guests.
Helmed by Bryant and Lynda Price, The Price Approach Photography strives to capture meaningful moments in exquisite detail during family portraits and wedding sessions. They also train their camera eyes on shoots for couples, newborns, and moms-to-be.
