Wilson Camera Digital Lab & Portrait Studio’s professional shutterbugs Rudolph Henninger and Jerry Fitzpatrick spend three hours imparting proper photography techniques to fledgling lens-wielders. Attendants tote their own SLR or point-and-shoot cameras to the workshops, which take place at one of two outdoor locations. Up to 40 students gather at the picturesque, zoo-neighboring Papago Park to capture images of wildlife and scenery, such as the sandstone’s naturally occurring laser shows; 15 or fewer pupils meet at Lopiano Habitat in Tempe to study nighttime photography. Once nestled in nature, workshop participants soak up wisdom about lighting, time exposure, metering, and ISO settings. The curriculums also include information on F-stops, shutter speeds, and how to keep distracted cameras focused on the task at hand. Class dates may sometimes change due to weather conditions.

Wilson Camera Digital Lab & Portrait Studio

Wilson Camera Digital Lab & Portrait Studio opened in 1954, back when most photos were still developed on papyrus scrolls. Nowadays, digital gear fills the store’s two locations, but photographer Rudolph Henninger still brings old-school photography knowledge to his work in the shop, drawing on more than 37 years of experience behind the camera. He and his staff offer photography services for weddings and family portraits, teach photography classes, and work in their photo lab to digitally restore old photos.

I learned all kinds of new stuff about my camera. They do the class in a beautiful setting and it was a good time.
Teresa B. · February 18, 2014
I recently attended the Wilson sponsored workshop held at Papago park. It was excellent. It not only covered the basics very well, the Instructor provided an environment to do several "hands on" approaches with great tips and ideas. I would highly recommend this workshop. Well worth it!
