5 Week Evening Course

5 Week Evening Course
For Beginners

The 5 weeks evening beginner photography class is our ultimate group course recommendation for beginners who want to make a serious step into photography.

During our five weeks program, we meet every week for three hours in the evenings to go through key photography concepts and tips. Then we give you interesting and challenging assignments to complete before the next session next week. These assignments are designed to let you use what you learned and encounter problems that we will resolve in the upcoming class. This method gives you plenty amount of time to digest what you learned, try it with your camera and come back with correct questions in your mind for the next session.

If you expect to miss one of the sessions due to your schedule, no problem. You can always join the same session from the following month’s course.

With our innovative approach to teaching, students find themselves completely immersed in their course of study over five weeks. The project-based curriculum covers an extensive 10 hours of material, which will comfortably get you to the intermediate level.

What do I have to bring?

  • Your camera: DSLR or mirrorless or superzoom
  • No camera? No problem. We offer free camera hire during the course (just tell us in advance).
  • Positive attitude and passion for visual arts
