It was good, not exceptional. I certainly learnt something and Sandy is a good tutor. I did not like waiting for the late comers and I much prefer if we started SHARP on time.

What You'll Get


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 today’s Groupon to SnapShotSandy, with locations in North Bend and Issaquah. Choose from the following options:

  • For $59, you get a three-hour basic photography introductory course (a $150 value).
  • For $59, you get a three-hour advanced photography class (a $150 value).
  • For $99, you get a two-session full photography course (a $300 value).

Seasoned photographer Sandy Horvath helps students master their digital cameras, learning the lenses, settings, and exposures that transform snap shots into high-quality pictures. Beginners work with their own digital cameras to apply the principles behind framing, focusing, and lighting in basic classes. Sandy uses simple explanations to show small classes how to optimize shots on automatic settings or with a manually set aperture value, then sends students out to take a list of photos that demonstrate the techniques or prove Bigfoot exists. Advanced sessions delve deeper into the advanced capabilities of digital equipment. Students take pictures throughout the workshop that they review with Sandy to see how they could alter the shutter speed and adjust the focus to freeze an action or melt hearts with a family portrait. When combined, the two classes comprehensively cover both theoretical and technical ends of photography between 9 a.m. and noon and 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. during the week, and on various Saturdays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The schedule lists basic and advanced classes throughout the month. Class sessions may meet at the instructor's studio or on certain locations that feature dynamic photographic subjects, whether they are flowers or models dressed as flowers.

About 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.
