Thank you so much for the class!! I really enjoyed it. Thomas helped me to understand things like Apeture & F-stops a lot better. He was able to explain it & help us use them so it was simple to follow. I know I will get much better use out of my camera now! Thanks again.

What You'll Get

A picture is worth a thousand words, making photographs and stick-figure sketches the easiest solutions to looming dissertation deadlines. Take advantage of efficient visual-communication strategies with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a five-hour Walkabout walking photography workshop at The Wright Image (a $159.99 value). Classes take place on Sundays and times vary depending on students’ schedules. The workshop includes:

  • Three hours of outdoor shooting focused on one of the following three categories:
  • Landscape photography
  • Urban photography
  • Macro photography (macro lens required)

  • Two hours of indoor instruction

  • Printing and matting for two images

The Wright Image’s Walkabout course places shutterbugs under the expert guidance of experienced photographer Thomas Wright. For three hours, eight or fewer photo pupils stroll leisurely through nearby scenic locales to focus lenses and the gaze of the tiny painters living inside each camera on outdoor tableaux in one of three styles. Students freeze the colours of fall foliage painted across a nature landscape, capture urban architecture as it stretches towards the sky, or focus macro lenses on a single drop of dew. Meanwhile, the Wright Image’s professional instructor regularly pops into frame to impart advice on techniques such as aperture and shutter-speed settings. Students learn proper composition, correct ISO settings, and how to hog-tie a stampeding camera tripod.

After outdoor treks, camera clickers retire to a classroom at the Waterloo Region District School Board, where they show their work while the photography professor helps them evaluate captured images. Two favoured photos emerge from the printer to greet awaiting hands. Students then adorn their new pictures with matting and a Post-it note inscribed with directions for the image to hitchhike its way back home.
