Photography classes & events

We are happy to offer group classes, individual lessons, expert workshops and free photo walks, store events, styled group photo sessions, vendor events, and more! Brush up your skills in time for the holiday festivities, family photos and reunions! Open to all ages and all experience levels!

Individual Sessions

Individual sessions can take you from square-one amateur to client-ready professional in personalized lessons designed to start where your own knowledge leaves off - a great way to really get the most out of your training and help you get the most value and usage out of your camera.

Lessons are taught by professional photographer and store owner Charlie Harper, whose 20-year career as a photographer spanned weddings, family events, internationally published news stories, politics and even the occasional presidential rally.

Schedule them when you want - no deadlines, no problems. From busy pros to passionate hobbyists, we have the lesson plan for you.
