What You'll Get

Nature photography gives audiences a safe way to see wild animals up close, unlike playing spin-the-bottle with a rhinoceros. Hone your picture-taking craft with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a six-hour hands-on digital-photography class and a one-hour guided photography field trip from Your Photo Safari (a $229 value).

Helmed by professional picture-snappers Gene Taylor and Megan Varone, Your Photo Safari edifies pupils with hard-won photography wisdom. Aspiring lens-persons bring their own DSLR or other advanced-feature digital cameras to the six-hour snapping sessions, which are held in private event spaces at locations such as the Doubletree Hotel Charlotte Airport or Jetton Park on Lake Norman.

During each photography class, instructors demystify button-laden time stoppers before moving on to more advanced topics. The teachers' relaxed presentation style puts brain matter at ease as students learn to select shutter speeds, choose color balance, and adjust camera lenses telekinetically. At the end of the class, the instructor shepherds students outside for a one-hour photo walk, affording snapshot squires the chance to practice new techniques under professional tutelage and the watchful eyes of highly critical tree squirrels. If the weather is foul, students patrol the hotel, seeking out decorative soap swans in their natural environment.

Check the website for available course dates and exact locations—new sessions will be added throughout the year.
