Well organized and thorough presentation including written manual. Instructors have a long and rich background not only their photographic craft but in the evolution camera technology/features. They showed a constant strong care factor every student in the class, making sure everyone in the group was not left behind even though there was a wide range of experience levels and camera makes/styles.

David & Ally are fantastic instructors. Not only are they masters of their craft, they are masters at instilling confidence and enthusiasm in their students through instruction in a fun and supportive environment. I've hesitated moving from Auto mode to Manual mode on my DSLR, but after taking the beginning class and learning so much about the mechanics of the camera and lens, the various settings and how all of this affects exposure, I now have the confidence to shoot in Manual. Highly recommend their classes!

What You'll Get


Quality photos leave their subjects looking their best, unlike mouth-staining popsicles and confrontational Christmas-shopping tussles. Learn to capture life from its best angle with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a six-hour in studio digital-photography course for beginners from McKay Photography Academy at the Sunrise Event Center in Rancho Cordova and a $25 voucher to One Click Pix (a $424 value). Choose from the following dates:

  • Sunday, July 17
  • Sunday, September 18

McKay Photography Academy trains eyes, fingers, and imaginations to work in tandem as a snapshooting dream machine during any one of its classes. The six-hour digital-photography course for beginners starts at 10 a.m. and runs until 5 p.m. with a one-hour lunch break (a $399 value). The course instructs 1,000-word wannabes in the relatively new fine art of digital photography, helping camera clutchers understand the intricacies of their instruments and showing them how to utilize a device's capabilities to produce the desired effects.

David and Ally McKay, an award-winning duo recognized by Professional Photographers of America, guide the class through basics such as manual settings, composition, and downloading before progressing to more advanced aspects, such as lenses and perspective, exposure control, shutter speeds, and hosting parties in abandoned darkrooms. Groupon holders will also receive a $25 voucher from Canvas by Blossom.
