The first photography classes spent most of their allotted times reassuring students who were afraid they would find the ghosts of somber-faced pioneers under the dark hoods of old-timey view cameras. Capture the spirit of photography with today's Groupon for instruction from Mike Maez Photography. Choose between the following options:

  • For $59, you get a beginner photography package at Venue at the Grove on September 4 or September 11 from 12 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. (a $550 value). The beginner package includes:
    • Four-hour beginner photography class
    • Two-hour portrait photo safari

  • For $59, you get an intermediate photography package at Venue at the Grove on September 18 or September 25 from 12 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. (a $550 value). The intermediate package includes:
    • Four-hour intermediate photography class
    • Two-hour portrait photo safari

Mike Maez's interactive classes instill novice and experienced photographers with the professional image-capturing expertise that helped earn him a WeddingWire 2011 Bride's Choice Award. Beginning-level workshops fill four hours with explorations of each pupil's camera settings, live demos, and hands-on shooting techniques including repurposing lens caps into pirate eye patches. After absorbing the necessary classroom-based knowledge morsels, students transition to a two-hour photo safari that lets photogs practice newfound techniques on an assortment of lens-charming models and backdrops. Intermediate classes and safaris follow similar formats to beginner sessions, but place an emphasis on advanced lighting setups—Mike's specialty—for capturing the magic-hour effect or documenting glow-in-the-dark tattoos.

Participants need only bring their own cameras to class in order to shoot the breathtaking backdrops of Venue at the Grove. Classmates snap shots of an on-site pecan grove, brick patio, and rustic farm scenes.

In the event the original class dates are full, additional beginner classes will be available September 24 and December 4, and additional intermediate classes will be available December 11 and 18.

Mike Maez Photography

When Mike Maez purchased his first digital camera in 2001, it was love at first snapshot. Swapping his previous day job for a life behind the lens, Maez has since filled his portfolio with more than 40 magazine covers, publishing work for Getty, the Boston Globe, and corporate clients including AOL, Microsoft, and Ford. This infectious enthusiasm extends to his portraiture, helping him immortalize wedding days, graduations, or sack-race victories with complete photographic packages rendered in digital formats or appealing albums. Mike also teaches students to become self-sufficient shooters with photography workshops, during which classes combine hands-on experience and classroom work to teach pupils how to attractively compose and light their shots.
