Jimmy was the most patient and passionate about his craft that I have EVER met! I went to his class knowing NOTHING and I left floating on cloud 9 knowing enough to take GREAT pics! He thought what those scary buttons on the camera are and how to use them. Since my first class, I’ve met him again twice for additional training! I highly recommend this class!!! Here’s just a sample.

I bought this Groupon for my little sister who is in high school. She had an amazing time and enjoyed the group atmosphere. She learned a lot and will be returning soon.

Jimmy was great! He helped us immensely with the 5 Basics of shooting in Manual mode during the hour beginners class. It was just enough information to soak in but not overwhelming. And after understanding those basics, my shots have been so much better. It's definitely worth every penny if you want to take better pictures. We look forward to taking the 2-hour class next!

What You'll Get

Choose from Three Options

  • $51 for a two-hour Photoshop elements class ($200 value)
  • $107 for a three-hour beginner photography class and a two-hour Photoshop elements class ($350 value)

In the beginner’s class, pupils tote their own digital point-and-shoot or DSLR cameras for a three-hour photo-taking tutorial, during which they’ll fine tune compositional skills by framing shots of surrounding flowers and park-goers. They’ll also learn six photo-improving strategies such as how to frame a shot, how to shoot in manual mode, and how to convince reclusive dragons to strike poses.

During the two-hour Photoshop Elements session, students learn the programs various functions, from layers and montages to placing a filter over images.

Students can work alongside the presentation of the Photoshop Elements class if they bring their own Mac or PC laptop already outfitted with Photoshop Elements or Photoshop from 2010 or later, or they can follow along on the classroom screen and take notes.
