What we're about
My name is Nick Chill, I'm a professional photographer living in Decorah, Iowa. For about 10 years I've been practicing photography full time, doing wedding and portrait photography, and selling fine art prints and stock photos. I have been teaching photography classes and workshops since 2011, starting in Southern California, and now teach out of my Decorah studio and through Decorah Arthaus and Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC). Self-taught for the first 6 years, I have since expanded upon my skills with a Bachelors in Photography.
Join me for local (Decorah) digital photography classes and workshops, from beginner to advanced. Get the chance to learn with local peers, share ideas, and build your photography circle. Hands on experience is the best teacher. I have the knowledge, and the equipment, to help get you started.
I will lead classes on such topics as:
• manual photography
• composition and light
• outdoor photography
• studio lighting
• Lightroom organization and processing
• and more
Each short (single day) class is part of a 4-Level progressive learning process. You can take more than one class in any given level, but I recommend doing at least one class in each level before moving on to the next.
• Level 1 - Manual control classes
• Level 2 - Practical application and lighting classes
• Level 3 - Photo organization/processing classes
• Level 4 - Advanced technique classes
