ABOUT THE CLASSES

All classes are meant to help you take better pictures in your everyday life (you know, for all the days you don't get to have a professional photographer with you).

 Whether you're interested in a beginner or a more intermediate class, all classes are meant to be a time of inspiration and fun.  It's not about how to do it the right way but how to make it work for you so that you feel you can actually do it on your own.  All classes are in person with professional photographer Jenn Best and are designed as a small gathering type environment to allow for individual attention where you can actually have your questions answered.  Think small party rather than boring class.  So come and enjoy a nice atmosphere with decor and refreshements, other lovely people and of course the chance to feel more confident about taking pictures.

ALL CLASSES INCLUDE:

4 HOURS OF INSTRUCTION WITH JENN BEST

DECOR + A RELAXING SPACE TO LEARN

LIGHT REFRESHMENTS + TREATS

A TAKE HOME CLASS BOOK

CLASS EDITIONS

 "Momma edition"  -  This class is geared towards Moms who want to capture moments of their children.  You will learn how to better use your camera as well as how to think about capturing everyday moments of your kids.  This class has refreshements and mimosas. So really, maybe we should call it "Momma's + Mimosa's"

"Dad edition"  -  The Dad class was born out of the Momma class (as so happens in life) where most moms feel that they take a million pics of Dad with the children but there aren't any pics of mom.  We want to make sure that your kids get to see images with fun and loving mom too.  So send Dad to this class to learn how to use the camera so he can get moments with mom in the photo.  We will encourage Dad's to think more often about capturing those every day moments.  Tell dad the class includes beer and chips - maybe that will convince him.

"Travel edition"  -  This class is for those who love to go on vacation but are constantly dissapointed with the pictures you take.  This class will go through the basics of your SLR as well as composition and light tips to help you better capture colours and scenery and memories from your vacation.  

"Excellent beginner class.  Simple, basic and hands-on.  Jenn explains and shows you how to set your entire camera's functions up and how and when to manipulate them to take better pictures."

"Loved the Class!  I was a complete beginner and I now feel like I can confidently use my camera and capture better photos. "

"Jenn and Scott went above and beyond.  They are both extremely friendly warm people who have a great ability to communicate the more technical side of photography to the everyday camera user."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

DO I HAVE TO HAVE A CANON CAMERA TO TAKE A CLASS?

No, not at all.  Though I shoot with Professional Canon Cameras and lenses, I have experience with amateur canon equipment as well as equipment from Nikon and other camera makers.  There are many similarities between cameras, sometimes certain functions or buttons just may be located in different places on or within the camera.  So just be sure to bring your manual as well and we'll make sure you understand your camera.  

DO I HAVE TO BE A MOM TO TAKE THE MOMMA EDITION CLASS?

No, not at all.  Though many moms have expressed interest in taking pictures of their family, and to be honest the class will be designed with moms in mind, it is not exclusivesly for moms.  So if dad, grandma or grandpa wants to come too, the more the merrier.  

Or if you don't have kids at all but want to be a part of the class feel free to join us.  Just know that we will use examples of taking pictures of family when we go through the class.
