I had to inquire about the location of the Mtg as to what Bldg & Rm # and the respondent said I wasn't registered for the meeting due to lacking return of info. I checked my Sent Mail a month earlier and sent her a copy and she magically found the missing info. To my original question she pointed out there she had no clue and referred me to a paragraph in a previous memo telling me to contact Vanguard. I contacted Vanguard and they ran me through 3 operators to finally locate the location of the meeting, which hasn't occurred yet. I'll reserve my comments on the meeting itself after I attend.

I was expecting more hands on experience with our cameras. Instead I got information that was useful but could have been done going on line or reading the manual. The lecturer did have some good tips as to making photographs as opposed to taking photos. However, a lot of what he covered was involving equipment that a professional would have, not a newbie to DSLR. I would have preferred he focus on the actual functions or the camera and helpful tips when taking photos manually. Also the last 5-10 minutes of the class was a slideshow showing off his work which was impressive but didn't help in any way for someone new to DSLR. Wasn't what I expected and drove a long way to attend this class since the one in OC wasn't available until end of the year and wasnt clearly noted until I bought the deal on groupon.

Save your money and look for a more "hands-on" class.

From Our Editors

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
These are “LIVE” seminars not online courses. Designed to teach students to shoot in manual mode in order to obtain “creative controls” over the DSLR. Please see comments from past students at http://www.betterphotos.org/testimonials

Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Owner's manual, DSLR, method of taking notes. PDF file is available for download if students qualify.

What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Starting in 2003, Ben taught numerous courses for the professional photographers across the country. In 2006, Ben developed the “Newbie Photography Boot Camps” for amateur and hobbits. As to date, Ben has personally taught over 6,000 students in 20 cities.

What do you love most about your job?
Be able to help students understand a fairly complex set of ideas on “creative photography”. And most importantly, help students to achieve the creative photos by understanding and able to shoot in the manual mode.
