Choose Between Two Options

  • $49 for a three-hour Composition in the Field workshop for one (a $99 value)
  • $89 for the above workshop for two (a $198 value)

Digital Photo Academy's workshops are held on Saturdays and Sundays at various times and locations.

A professional photographer teaches shutterbugs of all skill levels how to creatively ensnare memories in an array of informative classes. The Composition in the Field class fans artistic flames and helps cameras break a sweat during three-hour on-location workshops with up to 10 people. During each open-air outing, the instructor guides lenses toward flawless lighting, thoughtful framing, and stealthy snapshots of bald eagles not wearing their hairpieces.

Students choose from various class locations, including Bayou Bend's Ima Hogg Mansion, the exotic-animal exhibits of the Houston Zoo, and the reflecting pool and lush greenery of Tranquility Park. Participants should plan to schlep their own digital camera and any other equipment, such as a tripod or an antiredeye spell book, to the site of their picturesque adventure.

Digital Photo Academy

As memory cards replaced film reels, many photographers—both professional and amateur—felt befuddled by the new technology. That's where Digital Photo Academy stepped in. Since 2007, the business has facilitated workshops that explore all aspects of digital imagery, from operating cameras and uploading digital files to editing images and airbrushing realistic mustaches. Seasoned professionals lead the courses, helping understudies hone their use of light, framing, and timing. Students furnish their own cameras, and can tote along any ancillary equipment such as tripods, laptops, and flashes that relate to the course at hand.
