The Photo Classroom
I attended the four hour, in-person digital photography boot camp and it was great! The class was exactly what I was looking for and went over the basics of digital photography. The instructor was very helpful and walked around the class to assist while also providing clear, verbal instructions. Additionally, he provided a handout that made the class very easy to follow along with and was great for taking notes. The exercises the instructor had us do during the class were practical and helpful and really helped with understanding the concepts he was teaching. I had searched for photography classes in my area and was having a difficult time finding one. I am so happy I was able to find this class and it was well worth the hour and a half drive for me. I will definitely be looking at taking another class with The Photo Classroom in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to learn more about photography and improve their skills!
Ive taken multiple photography classes with the photo classroom and its been nothing but an amazing experience. Brian and his team are amazing. You can retake classes and many as youd like and price are reasonable.
I started taking a few classes here and there back in 2017 , eventually went on some expeditions, and also participated in the offered internship program. This is a great and thoughtful arrangement of classes for those wanting to further their knowledge of their hobby or consider their own career in photography. Even though I never took individual training, Brian and the team at The Photo Classroom were always there to help me with any questions I had. They all thoroughly enjoy photography and helping/teaching others. More than fair pricing and once you take the class, you can repeat it. You will meet many people varying in their level of photography knowledge/experience and I've always been able to relate to at least one person in the classes or trips. This is a professional, friendly, good community of photographers. Brian was also very flexible with me. Whenever something came up and I had to cancel the class, he would keep that credit for me to be able to use for another class. And you as the student, need to keep up with your own classes of course. Brian is also very personable and he is mindful of your own understanding. I would suggest The Photo Classroom to anyone looking to dabble into photography or to advance their knowledge of the field. Expeditions are really fun and well-planned out. I appreciate all the thought and effort that is put into making this a great learning environment and community for photographers of any level. Thank you Photo Classroom!
The Photo Classroom sets you up to have a great experience with Photography. It doesnt mean you wont have to work at it, but you are given all the tools necessary to take your camera off of Auto mode to using the more creative modes of Aperture, Program, Shutter and Manual. I have a 4 binder filled with all the class printouts provided by Brian Osborne with the Photo Classroom. Each class has its own handout describing in depth each skill. The beauty of these handouts is my ability to go back and re-read them. Another perk given, is something called the Killer Checklist. This is an abbreviated list of settings for the varying types of shots you may encounter. Again, these are just tools to help you achieve beautiful photos; as the photographer, one must still make the applications, but at least you have some guided starting points. In addition to the classes, there is also the ability to go with the instructor on various Expeditions, affording you access to in the moment instruction. Finally, during this pandemic, we now also have the option of virtual classes as well as access to photo instruction and challenges via Today's Photo Minute. I highly recommend the Photo Classroom as a way of complementing your journey in Photography. Barb Ryan
Ive been taking classes with The Photo Classroom since 2011, part of that time traveling from Raleigh. There is nothing like this anywhere. Brian and all the instructors are eager to help you be a better photographer. Every class is excellent. The lessons are broken down into concepts that make sense. Your questions are always answered. And did I mention the Expeditions? on those too. Try out what you learned with instructors to help you. Worth every penny!
