What we're about

Welcome to San Diego Photography Classes (Run by LocalPhotoClasses.com (http://localphotoclasses.com/meetup))

Why we are different (and better)

-We focus on learning HANDS-ON learning with YOUR equipment so you can take control of your camera and master it with practice.

-We offer many of our courses online in video form (included with purchase of class time) so you can take an in-person course and follow up and review with the online course.

We are committed to:

- Experienced teachers with a background in TEACHING as well as professional photography
- Small class sizes ranging from 6-20 depending on the location and content
- Hands-on learning style with in-class practice
-Professionally organized and presented material with Powerpoints in most cases.
-Online classes available (included with purchase of class time) to supplement in-class learning

Here is your opportunity to go from taking pictures to taking jaw dropping photographs. Whether you are a beginner with a point-n-shoot camera or an advanced amateur with a DSLR camera these are the classes for you.

Rob Andrew, a full time commercial photographer has 10 years of photography and training experience and is offering to teach you how to take better photographs. Our other instructors are experienced teachers with professional photography experience as well, each with their own teaching style and specialty.

There are 10+ different classes available to you that will cover the basics of photography and taking photographs, not pictures. Sign up for a class today because they fill up fast.

*FREE* Critique Session: In person (We hope!)

Plaza Studios

This FREE monthly event is geared toward improving your photography quickly! You can be there to just observe, or if you prefer to have some of your images critiqued, please bring up to three recent images on a USB flash drive. We will provide honest, constructive criticism, while enjoying some time at the studio with fellow photographers. Each forum will start with a brief introduction of everyone and then lead into the critique section. This event is held every month with the goal of having everyone in attendance present their work. This is something incredibly valuable from a learning experience and allows you to not only get feedback on your photos but get ideas from other people's photos and learn from each other. Participants will have a chance to get their work critiqued by professional photographer Rob Andrew and any additional instructors that are in attendance. Peer input will also be given. This is a very fast way to learn the ins and outs of what makes a great photograph. How it Works • Show up on time with a way for you to share your photos. This can be either via a USB drive, SD card, compact flash, or online gallery. Please have this ready so we can efficiently move from one person to another. • Please limit your amount of photos to 3. If we see there are more than 3 photos we will pick a few from the mix to critique so that we can give as many people as possible a chance for a critique. We may not get to everyone. • The whole event should take around 2 hours. Rules for the Critiques • No inconsiderate or inappropriate feedback/critique will be tolerated. This is meant to help lift you up and make you better, not to put you down. All experience levels will be present and this rule will be enforced to provide a comfortable environment. • Please come ready with your photos organized and ready to view. • The instructors are usually willing to hang out later so if your photos were not selected you can ask the instructors if they wouldn't mind staying late to give you a critique. We always try to be as accommodating as we can. The event is FREE! Please take advantage!
