Getting to Know Your Camera | 8 am - 12 pm or 12 - 4 pm | $1,000 per person
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 per person
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 are broken into two sessions. The morning session will be a hands-on, on-location photography session. After a break, the afternoon session will be devoted to a digital darkroom session. Working in Lightroom or a similar photo-editing program, you will work with Andrea to review the images shot 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.
