What You'll Get


In the days before mirrors, baseball players would collect their own baseball cards so that they'd always know what they looked like, regardless of slugging percentage. Enjoy the preservative nature of photographs with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a two-hour point-and-shoot or DSLR photography field trip from Chimpsy (a $125 value).

Learn to wield the power of the point-and-shoot or DSLR and unloose your inner Ansel Adams with one of Chimpsy’s two-hour workshops. Professional photographer Terry Thibeau will provide hands-on tutoring to eager amateurs and advanced hobbyists, covering the general anatomy, functions, and favorite Enlightenment thinkers of their individual cameras. Chimpsy's point-and-shoot session guides aspring shutterbugs through a one-hour introduction to the camera followed by a one-hour photo field trip, in which students experiment with composition and natural light as they stroll the streets of the Big Easy. Terry also leads DSLR lessons for beginners and intermediates, helping students marry form to function as they learn to manipulate aperture and shutter speed. Unlike dry textbooks that are riddled with jargon or elvish, Terry employs clear explanations so that students of all experience levels can easily apply his instruction to their own photo-taking excursions.

Chimpsy was founded by Mark Cafiero, a wedding photographer with more than 15 years of experience. He was also a former guest-speaker at the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International convention in Las Vegas. Chimpsy keeps class sizes small to avail pupils of the instructor's laid-back, yet attentive, guidance. The lineup of upcoming workshops has yet to be determined, so keep an eye on the schedule and visit Chimpsy's website to book a class.

About Chimpsy


At the tender age of 6, Mark Cafiero received his first camera. Though it was broken and filled with cartoons his father had drawn of Mark and his sisters, that camera sparked an early interest in photography. Since then, that spark has erupted into a full-fledged passion, leading Mark to become a professional photographer who has snapped photos for hundreds of clients, including celebrities and professional athletes. To share his spark with others, Mark founded Chimpsy, an resource that helps photographers of all experience levels calibrate their skills with casual in-person and online classes.

Available in more than 30 cities across the nation, Chimpsy's two-hour crash course features a hands-on shooting session and campfire-style presentation on topics ranging from camera anatomy to photo composition. For home study, online classes help photographers—beginners and aspiring pros alike—get more from their pictures through two-hour video tutorials that cover photo-editing software, shooting tips and techniques, and steps on how to build a photography business. From the comfort of their bedrooms, students can watch these professional photographer-led tutorials live or replay previously recorded sessions. Along with instructional classes, Chimpsy offers shutterbugs a place to submit photos for contests with monthly prizes or for feedback from peers, pros, and sentient picture frames.
