$20 for a Three-Hour Camera 101 Workshop ($99 Value)
Acclaimed photographer Brad Wrobleski and his crew of experienced instructors introduce students to important buttons and features on their Canon or Nikon digital SLR cameras at the Bridgeland Riverside Community Association. Classes are held Monday and Tuesday evenings in March.
With a firm belief that the first step to great photography and self-expression is to truly understand the tools of the trade, fotoscool curates workshops designed to make the visual art more accessible. With a team of seasoned pros led by world-renowned shutterbug Brad Wrobleski, the school introduces new photographers to the art and builds upon the knowledge of seasoned and professional shooters with advanced classes. Students leave seminars and workshops with skills that include how to take advantage of a DSLR camera's most important buttons and features or how to properly capture stunning landscapes or the first un-blurry picture of bigfoot. Keeping in line with their hands-on approach, the team often takes students out on location, and occasionally coordinates overseas photo workshops to show students what the life of a jet-setting photographer is like while learning to work around unfamiliar territory.
Founded with the objective of simplifying the often overcomplicated art of digital photography, fotoscool employs a team of seasoned instructors—each a longtime professional with a celebrated career—to guide photography students through seminars and workshops held across the country. Keeping their overarching objective of simple-yet-entertaining instruction in mind, savvy teachers design each session to get participants on their feet with hands-on activities such as interactive exercises, on-location shoots in scenic locales, and bonding human-camera trust falls. In an effort to branch out of the classroom, fotoscool also periodically hosts tours that ferry photo enthusiasts to scenic far-flung locales for extended shooting lectures and on-site experience.
