During the four-hour hands-on class, students gain basic camera-operating knowledge about f-stops, shutter speeds, ISO, white balance, exposure, and other shooting elements using the camera's manual modes. Throughout the experience, students apply what they've learned outside in downtown Lee's Summit. Instructor Mike Freeland guides students and answers questions along with other professional photographers, depending on the class size. Though cameras may be available for use, bringing your own DSLR is preferable. Students should read their entire camera manual before class, bring a notebook or recording device, and arrive at least 20 minutes early. To see available class dates and times, see the drop-down menu here. If you have a group of 10 or more people, a class time will be scheduled for you specifically.
Founder and professional shutterbug Mike Freeland calls on more than two decades of photographic experience and camera-handling in shoots ranging from staged portraiture to mostly improvised weddings. Joined by a team of 10 other photo pros, Freeland Photography captures moments during special and corporate events, documents images for commercial businesses' new products, facilities, and client interactions, provides photo coverage for political or advertising campaigns, and invites families into the studio to strike poses before being frozen in carbonite. Freeland Photography was recently inducted into The Knot's Wedding Hall of Fame.
