Crazy About Photography

Do you love photography? Do you wish your photographs were better? Do you ever dream about becoming a National Geographic photographer? Join us to learn more about your camera and all you can do with it — but specifically to explore how to make photographs that speak to people and tell the story you want to tell. Our focus will be on making photographs every day. We’ll also spend time sharing photographs for group and instructor feedback. You can view albums from previous course sessions on Flickr. Come ready to photograph, experiment, ask questions, explore and have fun!

You’ll need a digital camera and its instruction manual every day. Your camera can be a point‐and‐shoot, DSLR or mirrorless.
