Choose Between Two Options

  • $59 for a five-hour beginners' digital-photography course for one with one $25 voucher toward ten 8"x10" prints from One Click Pix (a $424 value)
  • $118 for a five-hour beginners' digital-photography course for two with two $25 vouchers toward ten 8"x10" prints from One Click Pix (a $848 value)

During the course—taking place from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 27, at the Oregon Conference Center—beginning shutterbugs master the manual settings of their camera and discover firsthand how a change in shutter speed, aperture, or ISO affects the image. Instructors also cover compositional best practices such as the rule of thirds, lens choice, and the use of leading lines. Although any digital camera may be used, students will get the most out of the class by bringing a high-quality camera with a manual mode.

McKay Photography Academy

Bearing the titles of Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman from Professional Photographers of America, David and Ally McKay embody the keen vision and aesthetic prowess that separated good photographers from great ones. They share these skills during classes at McKay Photography Academy, where they train eyes, fingers, and imaginations to work in tandem as a snapshooting dream machine. Their classes help aspiring photographers progress from neophytes to seasoned pros. When not busy instructing the next generation of shutterbugs, David and Ally also devise photo safaris, which send small teams of photographers to capture shots of famed landmarks including San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge; the Lincoln Memorial of Washington, DC; or Yosemite's 60-foot statue of Yogi Bear.
