This is was so fun and informative! You'll be learning from a real master, who is so congenial and hilarious to boot. Since my intro class, I've gone on an outing with Aperture Academy, and all teachers I've encountered have been funny, super helpful and knowledgeable, and so likable. I can't wait to book another!

Instructor is engaging and makes the class pass by fast. Extremely knowledgeable and teaches in a way where I felt I retained the information better (better examples, etc) than a traditional lecture.

What You'll Get

Before photography, the only way people could preserve their most treasured memories was by forcing everyone around them to stand completely still for days at a time. Today's Groupon presents a less complicated option: for $65, you get an introduction to photography workshop at Aperture Academy, located in Campbell (a $135 value). Award-winning nature photographer Stephen W. Oachs guides pupal shutterbugs to harness the power of today's sophisticated digital cameras. The three-hour seminar, scheduled once a month on Saturdays, simplifies key camera techniques and settings, and dispenses tips on editing photos to remove evidence of washboard money laundering. A catered lunch keeps pupils primed to spot each lens-worthy moment, be it a flock of pigs taking flight or an unethical astrophysicist stealing fire from the heavens.
