The snapshooters at Landers Photography School share their experience with students to illuminate the technical basics of manual camera use as well as professional compositional techniques. The two-hour seminars welcome all levels of photographer, with beginners trying the Getting to Know Your Camera class to explore the various knobs, buttons, and howling noises that new camera-owners may encounter. Low-light Photography ensures bright stills in dim rooms or on gloomy days, and Landscape and Nature lessons address finicky issues that arise when composing images of the outdoors. Experts coach students in Travel: Taking Better Vacation Pictures so travelers can capture clear, compelling shots of sunsets, beaches, or the inside of an airport's customs office.

The six-session Introduction to Photography series educates participants with 12 hours dedicated to photography fundamentals. Attendees apply technical basics such as how to use apertures to adjust light exposure and time-sensitive shutter speeds to lectures on visual-composition theory. Each week, participants present their shots to be evaluated by the class instructor and perused for cameos from Where's Waldo. No experience is necessary, but students must provide their own camera with full manual capabilities or a cardboard box with a caricature artist taped inside.

The team of Instructors at Landers is no less impressive. Jim Binegar is one of the few PPA master photographers in the area, Victor Watson has taught all over the USA, and Jack Braden brings more than 24 years of experience to the team and has photographed assignments worldwide capturing images of ordinary people, celebrities, and world leaders.
