Instructors: Mike Browna, Angie Georgis, Tony Juliano, Dale Rio
Skill level: Beginner
Students must own a camera with manual settings.
No previous photo experience required.
Location: Career Wardrobe
Cost: $295
This in-depth course will introduce students to the basics of photography, including composition, manual camera controls, color theory, and tonality.
A combination lecture and critique class, students will be given weekly shooting and/or reading assignments meant to provide them with technical information, inspiration, and the opportunity to put into practice material presented in class.
Taught in digital format, the information presented in this course can be applied to film or digital photography.
This class will serve as a prerequisite to PPL’s intermediate and advanced courses.
* Please note that this course focuses solely on picture-taking, or “capture.” Digital “processing” and printing are taught separately. Please refer to our online calendar for classes in those subjects.

Instructor bios:
Mike Browna has been photographing for almost forty years and has shown his work at Project Basho in Philadelphia and Umbrella Arts in NYC.
Mike travels extensively, making excursions to India several times a year, and annually to China, Southeast Asia, and South America. He believes that photography is a way to experience the people he meets and the cultures he visits.

Since childhood, Angie Georgis has been passionate about photography. She took photography classes at Baum School of Art after receiving her B.S. in Education. After that, she put her skills to use and became a photography instructor at the Boy's and Girls Club and spent several years teaching darkroom photography at the high school level.
While a film enthusiast, Angie has recently transitioned into the digital world.

Tony Juliano’s earliest, and most important, photography mentor and teacher was his sister, Carol, who was a professional photojournalist. Her death in 2003 brought Tony back to photography, what he calls “his calling, his passion.”
Tony studied for several years under renowned photo critic Ben Lifson of Yale University and has had his work published in numerous print publications. He also holds an official press pass for the City of Philadelphia.

Dale Rio holds an MFA in photography from Pratt Institute and is the recipient of a Fulbright Travel Grant and the Miguel Vinciguerra Grant. Her personal work has been shown in galleries in the States and abroad, and she has worked professionally as a freelance photographer and printer.
She has been involved with many photography centers, including the Photographic Center Northwest in Seattle, the International Center of Photography and the Center for Alternative Photography in New York, Project Basho, and the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center.

    I can't make the first class, but I would still like to enroll. Can I get notes or assignment so I wouldn't be behind?
