The best pictures say a thousand words, and the worst ones remain silent even when shaken repeatedly. Give photos something to talk about with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $30 for a 90-minute St. Louis Skyline photography class (a $65 value)
  • $35 for a 2.5- to 3-hour St. Louis Photography Tour class (a $75 value)

The St. Louis Skyline class meets at the Casino Queen parking lot closest to the MetroLink station on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. Instructors assist groups and provide one-on-one guidance as students capture images of the city's skyline against the sunset, and afterward, shots of lit-up buildings against the dark sky. Monday–Saturday, the walking photo-tour classes meet at the Citygarden. Participants snap photos of architecture and sculptures as instructors dispense tips on composition and camera usage. Tours end at the Gateway Arch, and participants must provide their own cameras.


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.

Customer Reviews

Brian was very friendly and helpful. My daughter and I took his class and we can't say enough good things about the wonderful time we had. Neither of us had taken a photography class before, but Brian helped us setup our cameras and took all the time we needed to get comfortable with our cameras. At the end of the class both us had great photos to share.
