A professional photographer whose work has been published in The New York Times and GQ, JP Pullos leads students through the inner workings of their cameras, teaching them to capture the city’s charms on location. A two-hour Holiday Lights class teaches exposure, aperture, and shutter speed while capturing shots of Rockefeller Center and Fifth Avenue. As people skate, sing, and shop, students capture artistically framed moments of Christmas-tree awe, glittering shop windows, and curiously sentient snowmen. Alternatively, students can master nighttime landscapes with a Long Exposure class at sunset in Central Park. Nocturnal shutterbugs learn to adjust camera functions and capture brilliant images in spite of the darkness. JP encourages his students to bring flashlights to play with long-exposure light painting and tripods, though he’ll also delve into camera stabilization without a tripod. For the Holiday Lights class, cameras of any variety are welcome at each class, including point-and-shoot and SLR, but for the Long Exposure class, it is recommended to bring a camera in which the shutter speed and aperture can be manually set.

Drawing from this wealth of experience, JP instructs students of the photo arts on the finer points of their camera, whether that be a DSLR or compact point-and-shoot. Through an intuitive teaching method and learning-by-doing, pupils gain confidence in how to frame stunning portraits, capture images in any lighting conditions, and optimally use their camera's features.

Keep up the good job and it would be great to have a cheat sheet for every class at the end

Simply amazing! I loved how they just turned something that seemed complicated for a person who just got their first DSLR and turned into something simple and intuitive. I was amazed by how much I learned after one class and that just motivated me into taking even more classes. I ended up taking all they had to offer and that was just one of the best things I ever did in my life! Thank you JP, Lydia and Tyler I had the best time!
