$99 for Six-Hour Photography Workshop ($229 Value)

During workshops, up to 12 apprentices walk through Calgary's photogenic streets, from the downtown Olympic Plaza to Prince's Island Park. Along the way, they duck indoors and outdoors, snapping pictures in one of three courses: Digital Photography I, Digital Photography II, or Travel Photography. In the basic digital-photography class, groups learn to deftly wield their SLRs, employing available light and controlling depth of field and perspective. During the more advanced digital class, students explore time-lapse photography, the use of polarizing filters, and exposure compensation. The travel class mashes up lessons from the other two courses with an emphasis on using artistic tools to express scenes. Each class includes lunch and refreshments, notes, and a personal assessment of completed work. See the schedule.

Learn Photography Canada

Learn Photography Canada's James Lam wasn't born a photographer—it was something he fell into after beginning a career as a mechanical engineer and travelling to Australia to work as marketing director for a national charity. But once he picked up the camera and learned its ins and outs, there was no going back. He fostered his passion and travelled around the world photographing landscapes, architecture, wildlife, and people until he could photograph an apple off a man's head from 20 paces.

Today, he leads students of all levels on photographic journeys of their own throughout Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver. As groups wander along photogenic streets, snapping images of architecture, urban wildlife, and people, James and his fellow instructors demystify digital SLRs by explaining aperture, white balance, and ISO. The team also explores photography further, expounding on techniques such as night photography and creating panoramic photos so that patrons can study the entire interior of a bank at once before robbing it.
