Courses & Inspiration for Photographers

„[...]find ways to inspire yourself and your clients by taking on challenges and thinking fast in situations that aren’t inspiring, make them inspiring.” ― Jose Villa

Education For Photographers

You cannot teach a man anything, you can only help him find it within himself.”
— Galileo Galilei

We never stop learning.  We are constantly looking for inspiration. We are constantly looking to make new friends.

Whatever your motivation may be, we have an ever growing number of courses for all skill levels.

You  Cannot Learn Photography From A Book 

Well, at least not from a book alone. We believe in hands on training,  We believe you cannot learn photography from a book, you need to have a camera in your hand, and shoot, experiment, then shoot some more. Our courses are designed to do exactly that - we want you to leave our studio, shooting better than you did yesterday.

Full day -SOLD OUT


Go big or go home, right? Deep parabolic softboxes are beasts (59 inches, anyone?), and provide an amazing,  beautiful quality light wrapping around the subject. However, they are not the easiest ones to shoot. It’s almost a little intimidating when you take this thing out of the box. 

In this one-day hands-on workshop, we will have models, pizza, and plenty of opportunity to shoot and socialize with other photographers.
