Let us know if you are interested in a Cafe la Photographie class.
Cafe la Photographie is a class designed specifically for amateur photographers who want to learn to create better images by having a better understanding of the fundamentals of modern digital photography.
Why do we do this?
Our studio’s mission is to help our client’s families ensure that they have a lasting and beautiful visual legacy of their family’s story. In today’s world, we realize that professional portraits will only be a part of this visual legacy and to fulfill our mission, we believe we must help educate our clients on what quality photography is, how it can improve their lives and how to improve their own image creation.
What is a workshop like?
FUN! Well, we want them to be for sure! But each workshop has a few basic parts. First is usually a bit of introduction with some provided refreshments to let the group get to know each other a bit as well as to let us learn about what the group is looking for out of the workshop. Next is the presentation, usually via slides or printed materials illustrating the particular topic of each workshop. Finally is the Q&A which is usually a very active part of the workshop where individual questions or challenges are addressed.
Our next series is tentatively set for Q4 of 2019.
