The Groupon price is fine but paying full price would have made this completely not worth it. I also didn't appreciate having to pay an extra $5 when I got there. He said it was for taxes.

It would be most helpful to have a Basic 101 class before taking the class I attended on Saturday, August 4th.

As a college instructor, I can say he does not have a gift for teaching. He is a very nice guy, and means well. He probably inspires students to want to be better photographers. But he is not good at instructing them. (I took a photo class previously from a different Groupon vendor that was fantastic.) You have to make sure that students are following what you are teaching. Quickly passing the screen menu in front of their faces does not accomplish this. My recommendation is to clearly differentiate the "basics" class from the "tell a better story class." Prior to the latter class (which I took), email the students a list of basic features that they should already know about before coming, and then don't spend time on that. If they don't already know how to set the focus to a point or adjust other settings, then they should take the basics class instead. But the instruction on those topics provided in the second class was ineffective, and therefore should be either fixed or cut.

I happened to do two photography workshops in the same weekend, both in Balboa Park. In a head-to-head comparison, the class by Dennis was far superior. His focus was not only on technically mastering our equipment, but developing our eye and learning how to adapt to each situation and find that 'special' shot.

From Our Editors

Dennis Mock's self-proclaimed spontaneity and documentary spirit have earned him dozens of local and national awards from photographers associations and national camera companies. His background in sports photography allows him to capture split-second moments of joy or truly spectacular action passes of familial play, and his experience in architectural photography gives him a natural sense of composition—whether he’s at parks, beaches, or shooting a newborn session in his professionally lit studio. Before each shoot, he discusses costuming and venue choice with clients to decide how and where to best capture the earnest smiles of graduates and high school seniors, the savvy stare during business head shots, the doting looks of parents, the proud family and kid moments, and the uninterested glances of celebrity trees. When he's not out taking photos, Dennis is busy helping others hone their composition and lighting skills during photography workshops that cover everything from camera functions to digital editing and the importance of storytelling.
