I enjoyed the Safari very much. It was evident that you love what you do and sharing it with others. You did an excellent job of providing individualized instruction even though it was a large group. I really appreciated you sharing your "goofs" and well as your "successes" as a professional. Thanks for a fun afternoon.

What You'll Get

Before photography, the only way people could preserve their most treasured memories was by forcing everyone around them to stand completely still for days at a time. Today's Groupon presents a less complicated option: for $59 you get a three-hour beginners' digital photography class and one-hour botanical garden tour at Gene Taylor Photography (a $125 value).

Alongside his professionally trained colleague, former photojournalist and photographer Gene Taylor introduces seasoned shooters and novice artists to the colorful world of digital photography in this introductory course. Students supply their own cameras for the inaugural shooting session as professional artisans shepherd them through a journey of digital equipment exploration. After students properly acquaint themselves with the basic functions and settings of their respective frame freezers, zoom masters introduce the camera's more sophisticated features such as shutter speed, color balance, and its ability to antagonize consumers in five different languages. Whether students are looking to memorialize their child's first encounter with brussels sprouts or document the paperboy's fondness for windows, Gene Taylor Photography illuminates the art of visual storytelling.

In order to indulge aspiring photographers with the space and privacy they need to hone their craft, the digital artisans host their tutorials in the private event space at the Girl Scouts' Asheville Service Center on Weaver Boulevard. Weather permitting, a botanical garden two blocks away provides students with the opportunity to tout their Polaroid prowess or fill a library with pressed flowers.
