Most people take up photography for the artistic expression and possibility of brushing hands with Eugene Levy inside a darkroom. Learn the tricks of a new versatile craft with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a four-hour photography seminar and workshop with a photography walk, plus an 11”x14” print of one of your photographs, at Jesse Hlady Photography on Quadra Street (a $360 value).
Jesse Hlady has been instructing eager students in portrait photography, with an emphasis on family portraiture, maternity, babies, weddings, boudoir and architecture. Led by a teaching staff of established photographers, the four-hour professional workshop enlightens amateur time freezers in a convivial classroom setting for the first three hours of the course (a $200 value), and unleashes the newly knowledgeable minds free into the streets of Victoria for an independent, instructor-directed photo-shoot scrimmage (a $50 value) and debate about light’s guise as a wave.
At the end of the excursion, photographic work is judged by its ability to say please, and the winning work earns its author a new camera. Jesse's staff also gifts a photo taken by each participant as an 11”x14” custom, retouched, dry-mounted print ($110 value) in addition to a $75 gift certificate towards a portrait session. Each pupil is instructed on his or her own camera, reducing separation-anxiety incidents.
