Welcome to Understand Photography, Southwest Florida’s only established, hands-on, professionally-led photography school! We've spawned lots of competitors that come and go, and everyone keeps coming back to us. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Professional photographer Peggy Farren started this training center in 2009, when she saw the need for hands-on and simplified photography training. Photography is "in" right now! The training opportunities are overwhelming! We strive to make our training as simple as possible. Please read the reviews of our many happy customers/students!
Peggy screens and specially trains each teacher. Our instructors have technical knowledge and also real world experience. You won't find any teachers who just picked up a camera last year here! It's a bit painful to see beginners teaching and giving bad advice to new photographers. One group told their students that they take 5000 pictures at a wedding! This is not the norm and no experienced photographer would ever steer you this way!
If your goal is professional photography, learn from pros who have successfully been in business for at least five years. You don't want to burn out by working long hours for little money! If you are a nature photographer, learn from photographers who have spent some time out in the field. You want to know what the best spots are at each time of year, when and where to find the wildlife or flora you want to photograph and what to be prepared for to create incredible images!
Each instructor is given tips and techniques on improving their teaching skills. We've kept our five star rating with Meetup for over five years and we want that to continue!
