In your lifetime you will take many photographs, photographs that will document your life, images of friends and family, of where you live, and work, and of your environment. Why not improve your photographic skills so that these images are more enjoyable and interesting to look at?
During my career my commercial photographs have appeared on the cover of magazines, of books, and in national advertising. My art photography is exhibited in galleries and hung on the walls of homes throughout the world.
I would like to pass on to you the knowledge that I have accumulated over the years.
We will discuss how to get the most from your camera, how to use available light and flash, and how to compose and see better.
Cost: $285 for 8 hours.
Schedule: The 8 hours will be split into three sessions. The first session is 3 hours in the studio (5pm start) where we will discuss the technical (I will demistify the camera and its confusing bells and whistles), and the theoretical (so that you can shoot in a mode other than 'Auto'), and the creative aspects of photography. You will take photographs during this time so as to put in use what is discussed. The second session is 3 hrs of photography (11 am start) and we will take photographs (portraits and environmental) with the emphasis on lighting and composition. The third session will be 2 hrs. spent in the studio (11am start) to critique the images taken, and illustrate how to take 'panning' and 'motion' photographs, and time permitting other unique uses of light i.e. using the light of a computer, candle and flashlight.
Class schedule: May 9/11/16 sorry...full
May 29 Jun 1/8
There will be a maximum of six in the class.
I also give private lessons consisting of two 2 hour sessions. The cost: $320.-.

“Just finished taking Peter's class a few weeks ago and I was very happy with both the lasting technical and creative techniques I learned. I loved the relaxed, small group that allowed for a more personalized experience that catered to each individual's specific needs, level, camera specifications and styles in photographing. I found it a great class to the basics elements of my camera down but most importantly opened up a new creative eye to see photographs and angles from a different perspective that I wouldn't have before. What I liked best was that Peter gives you a great foundation of technical and creative guidance but also incorporates self discovered tips and tricks that you wouldn't find in a book. And after then gives you creative freedom to explore on your own and then gives you direct feedback. Overall a great class to get you started and inspired to go out there and explore your own photography talents with some tips from an expert!”
