Our 1-2-3-Digital Photography Course is a beginner's class and is open to anyone. If you are just starting your photography journey we recommend that you start here. The three different sessions are designed to build on each other from one session to the next.
We recommend any "system camera" which has a changeable lens (such as those from Olympus, Sony, Fujifilm, Panasonic, Nikon or Canon). We are “brand-agnostic” at Viewfinder, so any camera brand is just fine. If you own a 50mm ("standard lens") please bring it with. We have several 50mm lenses for Nikon and Canon cameras which you are welcome to use during the course. Please be sure to charge your camera's battery and don't forget to bring a memory card with you.
*NOTE: If you currently do not own a camera, we are happy to loan you one for the course.

Matt feels privileged to work in a business that combines his passions and brings him in contact with so many interesting people from all over the world.
The 1-2-3 Digital Photography Course is a mix of theory presentation, short in-class exercises and afternoon shooting assignements. These classes are always fun and completely free of "photo-snobbery." Your instructor will provide short practice assignments that you can complete between sessions. Feedback is also provided. The course instructor is a professional photographer and experienced photography teacher who enjoys working with beginners.
