Do you have a "fancy camera" but are clueless as to how to use it? Maybe you'd like to get better photos of your children. Perhaps you are interested in understanding what all those buttons on your camera do, or what lens to purchase next and why. Have Camera Will Shoot v.1 is a beginner, one-day workshop, just for you.

We will spend the day together, either as a cozy little group of aspiring photographers, or one-on-one. A day full of hands on experience, loads of visual examples, and actual shooting together - not to mention Q&A until your heart is content and some other fun extras.

Sound good? Ready? Read on...

What to expect - group workshop

HCWS v.1 is limited to 8 attendees if done in a group setting. Just a comfy little group, in a cozy setting, chatting like girlfriends with our "big fancy cameras".

We will gather together at 9am, and conclude by 2pm. Here are the topics we will be discussing:

  • Camera Types
  • All Those Buttons
  • Memory Cards
  • Lenses
  • Exposure: ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed (aka: getting OFF of AUTO!)
  • Using Your Light Meter

What to bring:

  • Yourself!
  • A smile!
  • And of course, a camera, a DSLR to be exact.  Suggestion: If you really want to get amazing portraits, I would invest in and bring a prime lens. Don't know what that means? Shoot me a message and I'll give you more info [and a great place to get an amazing price on one!] You'll never regret that purchase. Like, ever.
  • Fully charged battery + empty memory card.

What will you get:

  • A Have Camera Will Shoot v.1 workbook.
  • Lunch!
