At SnapShotSandy, cocooned shutterbugs metamorph into flourishing shot snappers during three-hour classes. Tote along your own digital camera to Photography Made Easy, where an average of six classmates learn to adjust their devices' specific settings and rotate their lens' tires to nab the best possible pictures with gear they already own. The class paves a foundation of basics into skill sets and pays special attention to individual cameras' manual settings and muscular knots along with the principles of framing, focusing, and lighting.

Because they don't stand still like landscapes or wear photogenic tax forms like adults do, children bring their own challenges to the digital daguerreotype process, and during the hands-on kids photo workshop, participants have the chance to actually rehearse their new skills. In addition to a camera and lenses, album fillers bring their photo-ready offspring, who spend between-shot time under a sitter's vigilant eyes during the class's lecture and broccoli portions. Sandy also photographs the tots, so parents leave the class with their own shots as well as professional images to turn into posters when their children go on adorable bank-robbing sprees.


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.

I really enjoyed the presentation and thought the instruction to be pretty clear and understandable, however, I think I'll be needing to take the class over again to understand it even better.

The course covered some concepts that didn't apply to my camera but were interesting and informative nontheless. However, I don't recall seeing camera requirements in the Groupon description.

Great class, learned a lot. Would have liked it if we had reviewed some of the photos we took as a class. Seemed like we ran out of time.
