Jim Earls Fine Portraiture
In the more than 25 years Jim Earls has spent behind the lens, he has photographed over 1,500 weddings and countless families, high-school graduates, and children. A former president of the Arizona Professional Photographers Association, Earl also uses his portrait-snapping prowess to teach digital-photography classes. Beginners’ sessions instruct students on how to create quality images by manipulating camera settings, exposure, natural light, and flash. Alternatively, classes on computer and camera functions give step-by-step instruction on how to navigate cameras and upload images that can be edited, printed out, and used to wallpaper a bathroom. Earls leads both indoor and outdoor photography shoots, which help students become more versatile photographers by working among studio settings as well as natural backdrops.
