This was a great way to spend a Saturday. Richard and Justin made the group feel very welcome. We learned some good information during the "inside" portion of the class, and we had an opportunity to meet and greet our fellow classmates - it was great meeting such a diverse and talented group of people. We then began the "outside" portion of the class, first walking across the street to a park with waterfalls and old structures, then we traveled to another historic site with a charming mill house,finishing in Beacon, taking pictures of the sunset over Newburgh/Hudson River. All this was done with Justin providing good advice and painless critique - while he is an extremely talented professional photographer, he was friendly and down to earth with us all. This is a great experience (I intend to return), and money very well spent. I only have two thumbs to use, but they are both pointing upward for this Groupon.

What You'll Get


Photographers swiftly capture what sluggish painters cannot, such as the sparkle of a fleeting smile, the identity of a media-shy superhero, or the split second a peregrine falcon breaks the sound barrier. Attain photographic know-how with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

During the three-hour Intro to Your Digital Camera class, novices learn the basic mechanics of digital SLR and point-and-shoot cameras. After a review of the cameras’ menu items, aspiring shutterbugs partake in a quick still-life demo, as well as a live model shoot. Digital Photo Academy’s instructors encourage students to enlist in the class whether or not they already own a digital camera. The classes take place Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays at Denver Pro Photo. View the schedule.

The Composition in the Field workshops equip students with the skills to evoke surprising imagery from everyday surroundings. During each outdoor outing, an experienced photographer guides lenses toward flawless lighting, thoughtful framing, and stealthy snapshots of bald eagles not wearing their hairpieces. Students choose from locations such as snap fests of the urban environment of Lodo or the open-air venues and the zoo at City Park Pavilion to the sloping, textured stones of the Red Rocks Amphitheater. Participants in this workshop should plan to schlep their own digital camera and any other equipment, such as a tripod, to the site of their picturesque locale.

Workshops are held on Saturdays and Sundays at various times and locations and are taught by a host of instructors.
