My beginner digital photography classes are not a wedding photography course, it is perfect for a beginner looking to take better photos of their friends, family or starting a new photography hobby.  My goal is to help you feel more comfortable and confident with your camera.  The more comfortable you are with it, the more energy you can give to what really counts… your subject.  This is the first step in capturing stunning photographs of your family, travel adventures and everyday life.
