Photography Classes | Spring '16 | Logan Utah Photographers

Guys, spring is almost here. That means it's time to get out and shoot again and stop hiding inside. If you're a photographer and you really want to up your game, getting out and networking with other photographers and taking classes and workshops is the best way to do so. As a full time photographer I can't stress enough the importance of working and networking with other photographers. I am always looking for new classes, workshop and meetups to attend myself because they are an invaluable source of knowledge and networking. For the past 2 years I've had a great time teaching photography classes here in Logan and I'm way excited for the next cycle of classes to start. Whether you're a brand new photographer who just got your camera, or a professional looking to add some new tricks to your skill set, I'm sure there is something you can learn at one of these classes. 

Introduction to Portrait Lighting Workshop

Where: Cache Valley Center for the Arts
When: April 9th & 23rd from 9am to 1pm
Cost: $98
This is class a blast! We're totally focused on learning studio and location lighting. It's a two day workshop, that will be completely hands on, so bring your cameras. We'll start with the basics and teach you everything you need to know to get comfortable learning off camera lighting. Whether you walk into a studio or are shooting on location, this class will teach you how to control lighting in any situation. We'll cover topic such as: 
  • Getting your flash off your camera
  • Basic portrait lighting setups
  • Shooting in a studio
  • Shooting on location
  • Camera settings for using flash
  • What modifier to use
  • How to balance or beat the ambient light
For this class I do expect you to have a basic understanding of manual mode and we won't cover much about composition and editing. If you're looking for those, check out my other classes below, otherwise CLICK HERE to register

This is my Photography 101 Class. If you are just starting out and want to learn how to really control your camera, this is the class for you.

Introduction to Portrait Photography

Where: Bridgerland Applied Technology College
When: April 12th through May 14th on Tuesday nights at 7pm. 
Cost: $85 
I teach this class because this is my baby. I'm a portrait photographer. I LOVE shooting portraits. This class is there for those who have interest in shooting portraits for others either as a hobby, part time or full time business. This is all about people. We'll cover the basics, like manual mode, and there will be some overlap from my Intro to Photography Class as Bridgerland, but everything we talk about in this class will be about shooting portraits. We're going to shoot portraits of each other, professional models, people off the street that we find, everyone. Because that's what we do. I'll be teaching you how to: 
  • Work fast in manual mode and Aperture and Shutter Priority modes. 
  • Pose and compose shots of individuals, couples and families. 
  • Natural light vs Artificial Light
  • Working with your subject
  • Editing for portraits
  • Basic business and marketing
If you want to shoot people, there isn't another class in northern Utah similar to this one. You'll love it. We'll be outside, shooting and having fun for ten weeks. If you're interested in registering CLICK HERE
