Photography Classes and Worksshops

Photography is an art that allows you to freeze moments in time, express your creativity, and share your unique perspective with the world. If you're in the Pasadena and Glendale area and want to explore the world of photography, our workshops are designed just for you. Let's delve deeper into what you can expect from our beginner photography workshop, including its structure, duration, and recommended equipment.


Our typical beginner photography workshop spans over two sessions, each lasting approximately 3 to 4 hours. We believe this duration strikes a balance between covering essential topics comprehensively and ensuring that participants have a hands-on, engaging experience without feeling overwhelmed.

Number of Sessions

For beginners, we highly recommend starting with our two-session workshop. It provides a solid foundation and allows participants to grasp the basics of photography. After completing this workshop, participants often feel more confident in their photography skills and are better equipped to explore more advanced topics in subsequent workshops.


While having your own camera is beneficial, especially for practice between sessions, we strive to make our workshops accessible to all levels of photographers, even those without their own equipment.

Hands-On Practice

Session 1: Basics of Photography

Introduction to Camera Gear: We kick off with an overview of different camera types, from DSLRs to mirrorless, and discuss the essential equipment needed for photography.

Camera Settings: Participants are introduced to the fundamental camera settings, such as aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. We emphasize how these settings work together to create well-exposed images.

Composition: Understanding composition techniques is vital for crafting visually appealing photos. We delve into the rule of thirds, leading lines, framing, and more.

Session 2: Hands-On Practice

Practical Application: The second session takes participants out into the field. We explore a nearby location, such as a picturesque park or a charming street in Pasadena or Glendale.

Guided Shooting: Participants practice what they've learned, with instructors providing guidance and answering questions along the way. This practical experience is invaluable for applying theoretical knowledge.

Image Review: Back in the studio, we review the images captured during the field session. This review includes constructive feedback and tips for improvement.
