The class was informative but lacked practice and application of the skills they were discussing. The McKay's seem to be expert photographers but novice teachers. The format of the class was not conducive for beginner photographers who were eager to apply the what was being shared or "taught". I can honestly say, that everything they shared with me could be found in my camera manual, with slightly more clarification. Too much of the class time was made comparing items and making product suggestions. They also took the liberty of promoting their own products heavily, which would be appreciated if I felt that the courses they offered would scaffold nicely. I would not suggest this course.

My 15 year old daughter and my husband took this class as an introduction to using their digital cameras. Both felt the class was excellent and helped them better understand what they could do with their cameras. I highly recommend this class if a Groupon becomes available in the future.

5 hours was a long time. Maybe next time break it up into two sessions totaling 5 hrs.

I purchased this groupon as a gift for my wife, who loves art and taking pictures, but had never used an SLR camera before. She loved the class, learned a lot about camera settings and when to use them, and had a great refresher on elements of composition. I'm happy with the choice of gift, and I've already seen the improvement in her photography skills.

From Our Editors

Bearing the titles of Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman from Professional Photographers of America, David and Ally McKay embody the keen vision and aesthetic prowess that separated good photographers from great ones. They share these skills during classes at McKay Photography Academy, where they train eyes, fingers, and imaginations to work in tandem as a snapshooting dream machine. Their classes help aspiring photographers progress from neophytes to seasoned pros. When not busy instructing the next generation of shutterbugs, David and Ally also devise photo safaris, which send small teams of photographers to capture shots of famed landmarks including San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge; the Lincoln Memorial of Washington, DC; or Yosemite's 60-foot statue of Yogi Bear.
