Can I get a degree?
No...but we do offer fun, online, and hands-on community classes for anyone with a digital camera and a passion for photography. This is not your typical dry community class - these classes are enjoyable and interactive. You'll actually learn a lot and we'll show you how to get the most out of your camera!
Where are the classes held?
Our new online classes are taught using Zoom.
(If you need help with this platform, please reach out before the class.)
In person classes are held at Tanque Verde Guest Ranch and the U of A campus.
When are the classes?
Though the schedule may vary, most hands on classes are held on Saturday and Sunday mornings and afternoons. Online classes are held during the week day evenings. For an updated list of what classes are available now, check the "SCHEDULE & SIGN-UP" tab.
How much are the classes? How long do they last?
Class duration and prices vary and are located in classes tab above.
What kind of camera do I need?
To get the most out of our classes, we recommend DSLR or Mirrorless cameras that have manual mode or "m" on the main dial.
Film cameras and point n shoot cameras are NOT recommended for our classes.
Do I need to take the classes in order?
Not necessarily, but we highly recommend that those with limited photography experience start out with the starter class and both camera foundations. Within the class series, you will find that it is much easier to start with the first class and work your way up. However, there may be exceptions so feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
What should I bring to class?
Make sure to bring your fully-charged camera, an empty memory card, and something to take notes with! We also recommend that you bring your owner's manual for the camera if you have a different brand other than Canon or Nikon! If don't have it, that's ok, we can figure out most cameras.
How many students are in each class?
Typical class sizes vary from 5-12 students. If needed, we will provide a second instructor for larger classes, so everyone will receive plenty hands on instruction and have any and all questions answered.
What is your cancellation/refund policy?
All sales are final, but we understand that life sometimes happens. If you can't make it to class, we ask that you try and give us at least a 48 hour notice. Remember that you can also transfer your class to a friend or family member if you cannot make, please reach out if you have questions.
I missed my class! Can I reschedule?
If something happens and you miss a class, you can receive a credit towards signing up for a new class. If you miss a second class, any credit and payment will be forfeited. Again, please try to contact us at least 48 hours in advance if you know that you can't make it and remember that the class is transferable to a friend or family member if they have a receipt.
We're pretty understanding, so if you let us know the situation, we're more than happy to work with you!
