Professional Photography

All Pro classes will be taught Face-to-Face

 

Covid pressed us to perform online and while we did miss out on large-set work, we gained invaluable insight into the power of Tabletop shooting and the challenges of using one’s own resources. We will make Tabletop work a larger part of our curriculum than in the past and will continue to send gear home with students to do certain assignments.

For the first time we are offering all of the Pro Lighting classes at once to allow more students, who might have been online for the last year, the opportunity to work large sets and shoots. Fear not, we will split up the classes to assure the very best support for all. Franklin Avery and I (Michael Mejia) will share this class. Having done this successfully in the past, we are confident that a fine experience will be had by all.

We will adhere to all CDC requirements for social distancing. See Covid Accommodations at Left.

We’ve set-up both Face-to-Face and Online classes to support everyone. If Covid infections rise, we take our Face-to-Face classes Online. We’ve done this before to great success. We encourage you to enroll soon to make sure these classes run. You can always drop them by September 6 for a full refund.
