Before cameras, people preserved precious moments by posing for cave-drawing portraits or detaining Father Time in solitary confinement. Learn to stop the clocks with today's Groupon: for $39, you get an all-day photography workshop at Towne Photography (a $240.45 value including GST). Workshops take place on September 10, 2011, January 21, 2012, and May 12, 2012.

At Towne Photography's workshops, professional shutterbug Chris Keating demonstrates professional-level photography skills on the students' own cameras. For more than seven hours, Chris guides eyes and hands around photo-snatchers while deciphering the meaning of each button and showing how to unlock the camera's secret robot mode. After a lesson on the fundamentals of photography, pupils learn how to overcome capture lag, fine tune exposure settings, and artfully compose family photos. Learn the process of working with digital photography and the best way to store equipment when it is not in use. Chris draws upon his extensive photography experience to answer any questions and put crying cameras down for naps.

Betterphoto Workshop

Reflecting on this childhood, Chris Keating sometimes feels as if he didn't exist. His parents' divorce left him with very little tangible evidence of his formative years, so he's spent his adult life as a photographer making sure children can look back fondly at warm family memories. Chris Keating and his Calgary staff have made this a reality for more than 3,000 families since opening the doors to Towne Photography in 2006. There, the professional photographic crew shoots posed and candid shots of families, children, couples, and babies at picturesque parks or against their studio backdrops, and they also snap triumphant graduate portraits, intimate prenatal shots, and provocative passport pics that make border crossing a breeze. Their ironclad guarantee allows unsatisfied clients to request reshoots, reprints, or resizing on all photographs, and they vow to remake or recapture any artwork that sustains damage over the years. Chris also takes his photographic knowledge on the road to conduct Betterphoto Workshops across the United States and Canada, teaching novice photographers how to artistically preserve their most precious memories.

Customer Reviews

Very informative and the delivery was explained in nice and simple to understand terms
Stephen G. · January 22, 2012
Great information for beginners and speaker were enthusiastic. The workshop was full of laughter, however please think twice to sign up with them for any photography session. It's really costly.
Cheryl C. · February 20, 2013
It was a very informative and interesting workshop. Not geared for point and shoot cameras even though their ad stated for all users. But I did enjoy it.
