Keep up the good work. I still have three more classes, but will be back for more after those. I love your method of instruction!! Thank you so much.

I gained a much greater understanding of the elements affecting exposure, namely ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed. We also learned about depth of focus, dynamic range, lenses, and white balance. With the knowledge I learned, I was able to get the results I wanted in a photograph, but was not able to achieve with the auto setting. :-)

What You'll Get


Quality photos capture piercing looks, toothy smiles, and elusive dodo sightings much more efficiently then papier-mâché sculptures. Put down the paste and pick up a camera with today's Groupon: for $95, you get the Photo I (a $95 value) and Photo II (a $95 value) photography workshops at Cole/Marr Photography Workshops (a $190 total value).

Cole/Marr Photography Workshops teach traditional photography principles and new digital-imaging technologies before putting those skills to use. Taught by Cole/Marr founder and naturalist photographer David Marr, the two-session Photo I and Photo II workshops spelunk through the camera caves of stop-action, show-action, depth of focus, metering, and limitations in film and digital formats (each a $95 value). Equipped with wisdom gleaned during each three-hour lesson, memory memorializers hone lens skills in preparation for a chance to document jig-dancing rock formations and hideously shrieking birds.

Encased in a red-brick industrial exterior, Cole/Marr welcomes customers into its lofted, timber-outfitted workshop, where photo elves don their picture tool belts and can be found hard at work. Inside the studio, photographers have access to three darkrooms, multiple shooting areas, student and instructor galleries, a photo library, and digital workstations. Cole/Marr also boasts an on-site coffee house featuring espressos and daily delivered foods from local bakeries. Much like dinner dates with werewolves, Photo I and Photo II workshops are offered once a month.

About Cole/Marr Photography Workshops


In 1975, photographers Kristen Cole and David Marr founded their eponymous workshops in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, with only a darkroom, some developing equipment, and a classroom that could barely hold five students and a small grizzly bear. After 20 years of educating New Englanders, the talented duo relocated its expanding school to Boise to impart the duo's commercial and artistic expertise to students in the Treasure Valley. Cole/Marr Photography Workshops now illuminates the art of image capture in Boise's renovated Cultural Center, which houses the school's three darkrooms, studio and framing areas, digital workstations, and a photo library. Open to new framers and advanced snappers alike, the workshops' curriculums span fundamentals of both traditional and digital photography, with seminars on topics such as the darkroom process, Photoshop editing, and portraiture. Pupil and instructor galleries inspire with beautiful shots, many taken during photo safaris led by Cole and Marr to destinations as diverse as the contents of a communal diary.
