With a conscientious interest in fielding questions and an animated-but-casual teaching style, photographer Chris Keating believes he can help anyone become a better everyday paparazzo no matter the kind of camera they use. During four-hour workshops, he shares his expert technical knowledge and infectious zeal for the visual arts. Participants enjoy a crash course in proper shooting, including eye-opening tutorials on navigating capture lags, calibrating exposure settings, and understanding the rules of composition. Students also learn how to handle their photo equipment with care. See the class schedule here.
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.

“It was a great learning tool - I am now confident in using my camera when it is on Manual setting.”
“seminar was good, but too many people at it for my liking.”
