Le Boutique

So you heard about “The Salon Group” and thought, “That’s too advance for me,” I am only a beginner, but I am serious about learning photography.” Then Le Boutique is for you.

Who created this group and who is going to lead it?

Professional Photographer Keith B Dixon (

Why the French word Boutique?

bou·tique /bo͞oˈtēk/


A small store selling fashionable clothes or accessories.

A business that serves a sophisticated or specialized clientele: "a small investment boutique"; "a boutique film".

Who are we?

We are small but a force. We create fashionable, sophisticated, thought provoking images, and we are investors in our own creative.

The best part of our group is we are all newbies, beginners, no experience, just bought a camera type of photographers who want to shoot everything. Basically, we create images with anything that has a lens and digital. We are the best of the Newbies.

What are we going to do?

We are going to develop creative images in the most basic way using the equipment you have and techniques from my new book “Vantage Point.” You won’t need fancy lens, filters, or expensive cameras, but if have them great.

Our goal is simple:

  1. Create a photographic opportunity
  2. Shoot it
  3. Edit it
  4. Print it

How are we going to do this?

Once a month we will meet in Hayward at 7PM until 8:30PM. I am going to teach you how to unlock your creative energy using Vantage Point with whatever camera equipment you own.

We will also go out on the streets a month, to not so obvious locations, to photograph our ideas and view points.

What is the Photographic Zone?

The Zone is a 7 step process to help you jump start your creative energy.

Is this group for me?

That depends on your level of commitment to the meeting and additional work?

Why should I spend my valuable time with Le Boutique?

My teaching style is unlike any other program, workshop, or education you will find for a beginner in photography. My strength as a teacher is in my ability to understand your needs and provide a solution and photographic direction.

Requirement for this group?

  • Must own a digital camera and lens
  • Attend 2 meetings a month
  • You must be new to photography for example, If you explained Aperture to me you would confuse me with your answer, Your a newbie and meet the requirement.
