During the lecture and photo walk, students will learn the fundamentals of their cameras, including the mechanics of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. They will also tackle photographic techniques such as white balance, Photoshop editing, shooting RAW and JPEG, and how to capture moving subjects. The instructor then provides a critique of their work.

Photography Cures

When Alfonso Arnold took time off from touring Canada as a musician, he planned to focus on business and marketing. But when a colleague asked him to snap a quick shot of a local artist, Arnold realized he had found a new artistic passion: photography. Since capturing that spur-of-the-moment image, he's crafted a diverse portfolio that encompasses fine art, commercial work, and a wide variety of subjects. He also teaches at Vancouver's LaSalle College of Design, imparting the photographic technique that's inspired the University of British Columbia and Amnesty International to commission his work. Arnold himself has been featured on CBC and MTV Canada.

As the instructor and founder of Photography Cures, he follows a philosophy that hinges on giving constructive critiques and paying close attention to students' skills so he can tailor each workshop and curriculum to individual needs. Not content to merely lecture, Arnold takes students on photo walks so they can get hands-on experience and try out their new skills.

It was a great day. I learned a lot.
Lorraine J. · January 31, 2013
The workshop was very user friendly I learned a lot about the elements of exposure but also encouraged to be creative with photography. The photo walk about was an amazing opportunity to see a block of Vancouver from a different lense. Thanks for the great workshop Alfonso! I would like to attend future workshops. Leann.
