Sitting for a photo was once a long and arduous process, as evidenced by the unkempt facial hair grown by our earliest presidents during their portrait sessions. Capture a clean image with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $59 for a three-hour basic-photography course (a $150 value). Beginners spend three hours working with their own digital cameras as Sandy teaches them the principles of framing, focusing, and lighting.
  • $59 for a three-hour advanced-photography class (a $150 value). Students take pictures throughout the workshop while Sandy shows them how to alter the shutter speed and adjust the focus to freeze an action.
  • $99 for a two-session full photography course (a $300 value). Students can combine the basic and advanced classes to learn both the theoretical and the technical sides of photography.

Basic classes are held on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays; advanced classes are held on Saturdays. See the schedule for more information. Class sessions may meet at the instructor's studio or the Science Center at the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery, which both feature dynamic photographic subjects.

SnapShotSandy

Before Sandy Horvath retired from his career as a sales manager, he spent his spare time chronicling the lives of his loved ones and documenting his own travels throughout the world. Over time, his love for his craft blossomed into a thirst to become an admired photographer, so Sandy started submitting his action-packed sports photos to newspapers and magazines. With the publication of his work came professional status and a desire to share his knowledge with others. His first opportunity arose in 2009 when the Si View Metropolitan Park District asked him to teach a class. Soon after, the Issaquah Parks District clamored for Sandy's expertise; he now has over 2000 Club SnapShot students and more joining every day.

Today, Sandy teaches students of all ages and skill levels how to transform snapshots into high-quality pictures with lenses, settings, and exposures during his basic, advanced, and creative classes. He loves helping novice shutterbugs abandon automatic settings—the training wheels of photography—and create memorable images with nothing but manual settings and high-tech freeze rays.

Really excellent small class atmosphere. Time of practice to listening is well done. Really simplifies what you could find on the internet or your camera manual. And makes you a highly effective photographer in a short time.
