Before modern photography, portrait-seeking subjects would cover themselves in year-end financial figures to meet the requirements for being xeroxed.

Photographer Glen Graves, who possesses a sensitive and aesthetically attuned eye informed by decades of experience, demystifies digital photography for budding shutterbugs during a four-hour class entitled The Fundamentals for the Craft of Digital Photography and an Introduction to the Design and Art of Photography. The veteran flash dispatcher allows groups limited to 50 students to pick his brain for useful tidbits on how to use their digital cameras to capture imaginative snapshots. After each class, protégés receive a take-home guide, a detailed handout on the concepts covered in the class, and a PowerPoint presentation on the scientific ramifications of string theory.

PhotoArts Marin – Glen Graves

More than 20 years of photography experience grants PhotoArts Marin's Glen Graves more than just an eye for an ideal snapshot. His skill with traditional film cameras, lighting, and composition elements imbues his photos with a quality that has drawn the attention of such clients as Ford, US Air, and Architectural Digest. When not capturing boudoir portraits or smiling families during photo shoots, Glen can be found in the classroom teaching aspiring photographers the tricks of the trade, from using dynamic angles to frame a subject to how saying “cheese” banishes spirits intent on photobombing.

Customer Reviews

Glen's Intro to photography class was really great! Very informative and we got to practice what we've learned at the end of the class. It was a lot of information that makes one go home, read a bit more and practice, practice, practice! Glen was very open to any questions the group had and patiently answered each question with a lot of details. A great experience! Absolutely recommend the class with Glen!

I really enjoyed the class would love to do a field trip as a part 2 after the introduction.

Very informative. He was able to explain in simple terms the relationship between lens opening and shutter speed for optimum picture insulation. I would very much recommend Glen to anyone interested in photography. And he is a nice guy. He has the patience to work with you so you can grasp the concept.
