Start making better images right after the 1st class! Take control of focus, exposure, flash and more. You won’t believe how easy it is! Our Beyond Auto Workshop is 8 hours of class & practice time filled with tons of real world examples to help you better use your camera – with page after page of handouts filled with pro tricks (great reference!). Registration cost & class size varies with location.
I have a better understanding of taking pictures the best way I can. I can’t believe how much is on my camera and I’ve had it for 6 years. Tessa
Today was the first class…WOW. I learned more about my camera in 2 1/2 hours than I learned in a 6 week Intro to Dslr Class I took last year at an art school. Malinda is fantastic. Mirna.
Tons of Practical Pro Tricks explained in everyday language! Factory settings don’t even let you choose where the camera focuses! Leave the frustration of Auto Mode behind, and skip the classes & online videos that expect you know all the terms! Intimidation-free workshops designed to get the most out of your camera, painlessly! Open to adults through teens with any interchangeable lens camera (DSLR or mirrorless) or advanced point & shoot (with dial that has P, A, S, M).

If you’ve been looking a photography instructor, who is knowledgeable, hands on and creative, you’ve found the right person! From firsthand experience, Malinda is not only very knowledgeable about digital photography, but it’s her years of field experience, that helps her students better understand their camera’s and why their pictures might or might not have turned out the way they were intended. She’s very knowledgeable on various cameras and is willing to teach to any kind (no camera discrimination, here!). I’m more comfortable with my camera settings and more confident I can make the best judgment call, even when shooting in unfamiliar lighting. Kara
