Getting to Know Your Camera | 8 am - 12 pm or 12 - 4 pm | $1,000
This class is for anyone who would like to learn the basics or more advanced technical functions of their digital camera. Finally learn what all those buttons on your camera are for, which ones you can ignore and which ones will assist you in creating striking images.

iPhone Photography | 8 am - 12 pm or 12 - 4 pm | $1,000
You can take more than selfies – learn to take high quality and creative photos on your iPhone. This workshop will teach you tips and apps that will turn your iPhone pictures into art.


Full-day photography workshops will be spent photographing and hiking for the entire day or split into two sessions; an on-location photography shoot followed by a photo-editing session. The morning session will be a hands-on, on-location photography session. In the photo-editing session, you will work with Andrea to review the images in Lightroom or a similar photo-editing program, and transform them into printable artwork. Based on the weather and lighting conditions, we will choose between four scenic locations to capture stunning vistas of Aspen and the surrounding mountains and valleys.
