Welcome to the Bel Air Camera listing for our Photo Club, classes, and workshops!

At Bel Air Camera we do more than just sell photographic and video equipment. We are now offering a series of classes and events tailored to all different skill levels and interests. Our classes are taught by a variety of instructors, all with many years of experience in the photo industry and our goal is to educate, inform, and enlighten you with tips and tricks of the trade. Our courses will help you hone your photography skills, streamline your workflow, and, while our classes are not designed to be sales pitches, we will teach you about the gear and tools you need to get the results you want!

Please note that many of our basic classes will be given free of charge, however we also offer more advanced classes that are co-sponsored by Vendors or are taught by outside Professionals. These classes are generally smaller, more hands on, and there is a small charge for them; at the moment between fifteen (15) and sixty dollars. Even when we are hosting these events we will still continue to provide 2-4 FREE classes per month! If you require more individual help we also offer one-on-one camera instruction, by the hour or by the half. Contact Rika at 310-208-5150 to set up a one-on-one.

Topics and events change each month but our core 101 class repeats every other week so join our mailing list for all the updates! Our basic classes will cover a general run down of the cameras features and menu options and settings. The information in the 101 class will be appropriate to point and shoot, mirrorless, and DSLR users. There will also be a follow up "201" that will delve into the more advanced "manual" aspects of photography with greater detail. We will also host a variety of classes designed at specific topics  avilable to all skill levels!

If you are a beginner in the photography & Video world, these are for you! If you have a working knowledge of shooting but want some tips & tricks from knowledgeable people with years of experience then these are for you too!

Our class space can accommodate up to 40 people and most classes will be 90 min. If you have a group and need a space to meet, feel free to contact me at
