Great instructor for the intro to digital photography. Attended with my 14 year old niece, and it was basic enough for her (and me) to understand.

If you have a DSLR camera and keep it on the auto setting take the DSLR for beginners class! You learn so much in just 3 hours! The instructor Josh was awesome! Everything was explained perfectly!!!!

I took the 3 hour beginner class and not only had a great time, but a solid learning experience. Our instructor(Josh I think) was informative, helpful, and patient. The handout that is given is useful and I've referenced it many times since leaving the class.

EXTREMELY professional, organized, kind & responsive teacher. At $60 per hour, maybe $5 or $10 too expensive - I know that's purely subjective, but might mean more students, more exposure?

They did a very nice job with the workshop that I attended. I would definitely do another one.

I found my instructor, Josh Brilliant, to be very knowledgeable and set the tone in the class that encouraged questions. I left my camera at home (I didn't recall reading in the class description to bring one's camera, so I left it at home), so I was happy to learn that I could borrow a camera! In that regard, I was surprised that the class included lecture with hands-on assignment to take photos and then use one of the photos in the application. The only initial drawback was the location, but I think once you learn how to navigate there the location doesn't seem as foreboding. I also think the facility could improve signage on how to enter the building. I went to the "side door" and then figured out how to use the intercom system (including the initials of the organization). I then noticed persons walking towards the front of the building, so I left the side entrance and made my way to the front. I also think the organization should explore selling a few refreshments (coffee, tea, water and small bags of pretzels) but restrict eating/drinking to where the books are located - or some other location that would not damage the equipment or exhibits.
