The best photographers rise to the top by practicing, and second-best photographers rise to the top by shooting blackmail photos of the first-best. Snap like a champ with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a three-hour beginners' photography class (a $75 value) at STL Photo Art. Classes take place at the Missouri Botanical Garden on Saturdays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. or at the Tower Grove Park on Sundays from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Seasoned shutterbug Brian K. Owens imparts artistic photo-snapping knowhow to pupils during three-hour outdoor walking classes. Each intimate, six-person session teaches fledgling photographers how to capture nature landscapes, create striking portraits, and coax birds to smile on command. Students will also begin mastering the nuances of color and contrast and methods for enhancing the details in close-up photo shoots. To keep each lesson relaxed and comfortable, customers may bring one friend to act as a portrait subject or shout cheers of encouragement like an overly proud parent.


When camped out at a picturesque St. Louis spot—from an old barn to the iconic Arch—Brian K. Owens sees more than just the opportunity to take a pretty picture. The fine-art photographer and owner of STLPhotoArt grasps for stories in each of his photos, stories that he seeks to bring to his clients through commercial shoots and instill in his students during photography classes. The shutterbug guides beginning shooters through Forest Park and the St. Louis Zoo, dispensing photography know-how along the way. Owens also lends his talented eye to elegantly capture moments at weddings, engagements, and knight-christening ceremonies.
