I learned so much about my camera in just 4 hours. The course was easy to understand, and I feel like I can actually take some decent pictures now! Right in time for my trip to New York, too! I highly recommend this class to anybody who would like to know how to use their camera.

Dean was great and captured my best side. I have also taken a photography workshop at his studio and learned so much while having fun. Thanks Dean!

This is my second class - took the Introduction to Photography class first. This class was very informative - Dean has a ton of experience and knowledge and is more that willing to help you understand. There were numerous exercises where the students photographed various themes / techniques....hands on learning. I enjoyed the class very much and would definitely recommend.

This was a great class regarding all the basic fundamentals of photography and the operation of the basic functions of the camera. Dean is very knowledgeable and does a great job in communication (albeit with some dry humor). There is a ton of information - at the end of the class, you're provided with a link to download the slide presentation. A great introduction to photography.

The teacher was very knowledgeable. The class was in a comfortable setting. He answered everyone's questions, and he was able to address the differences in any camera. He was prepared and used the time well.

From Our Editors

If it were up to Dean Farrell, he would always have a camera in his hand. As a photographer at Orcatek Photography, Dean's mission is not to just capture an image. When he points his camera at a person, object, or landscape, he wants to reveal a "new point of view," and in a sense transform his subjects without having to trade in one of his wishes from the wood nymph whose life he once saved. His artistic philosophy translates into a physical determination to take the best photo possible, which he'll shoot by climbing over obstacles or even crawling in the dirt. Dean demonstrates this philosophy and passion for photography through his studio's diverse menu of services. He takes striking, black-and-white photos of newborns, intimate close-up shots of mothers-to-be, and candid portraits of couples and seniors from unconventional angles. His specialty—boudoir and retro pinup shoots—swing from tasteful high-angle shots of subjects tangled in sheets to playful costumed poses pulled straight from the 1940s.

Not one to keep his techniques secret, Dean shares his knowledge on multiple topics during workshops that encompass both fundamentals and advanced lighting and composition skills. Workshops venture outside the realm of photography to video workshops help budding filmmakers capture better footage.
