Class was to start at 1pm. I found it very inconsiderate to those of us who arrived on time that we waited 15 minutes for late comers to arrive, class should start at the designated time.

It was a great class. i do wish there was more photo taking and instruction at the same time than a lot of talking and a little picture taking practice.

If you are leaning photography she is a wonderful mentor. Breaks technology down to be relateable and usable. Enjoyed her class and hope to take the advanced class in the near future!

Everyone had the same basic camera knowledge. Justyna made the learning fun and made sure no one got lost in the information. I would recommend this class to every beginner photographer.

I am so disappointed by my experience with Funky Monkey (FM). I signed up for a photography class months ago, and then had a conflict with the date. I first tried to reschedule using FM's web calendar, but couldn't. I then called FM several times to reschedule (well within the time frame provided to reschedule) and sent an email. I did not get any response to my voicemails or email. Then, Justyna (owner of FM) sent out a group email to participants a couple days after the class. I responded to that email inquiring about rescheduling and called again. I have yet to receive a response. At this point, I want my $60 back. The lack of response is unprofessional, and incredibly frustrating.

Unfortunately I can not recommend using this vendor. These are my concerns: Availability: Once I purchased my groupon there was only ONE available date that my groupon could be redeemed for an intermediate class. No other options for intermediate classes. (There were options for beginner classes) Communication: This was my most frustrating concern. I sent three polite emails and one phone call, but the vendor did not respond to me. Follow up: We were promised several handouts as part of the class. These were not provided during the class. We were told that she would email them to us-I have never received them. (Sorry-instructor seemed nice but I was dissappointed)

I had not heard of Funky Monkey prior to seeing the Groupon.

Great class. The instructor made sure we understood the concepts she shared about photography and made sure we knew how to apply those concepts to our individual cameras.

We had various levels of "beginner" but I think we all got something from the class. I appreciated the easy approach and explanations. We learned about the camera itself and functions, as well as how to take better pictures.

From Our Editors

The birth of a child is one of the most important events in a parent's life, but key moments in a baby’s first year often pass by undocumented. To relive those moments, parents must rely entirely on their memories, which are almost impossible to send as email attachments. Or they can work with Funky Monkey Photography's owner, Justyna Nielsen. Justyna uses her camera to capture what she calls birth stories: photographic narratives that showcase important first moments, such as the first time parents cradle their newborn. Additionally, she captures more memories as children grow, shooting sessions for toddlers, older kids, and the entire family.

Of course, Justyna and her focused lens can't be around for every important family event. Luckily, the expert teaches her secrets during photography classes. She can help small groups of students learn essential camera skills—such as manipulating ISO and shutter speed—as well as the best techniques for photographing kids.
