What we do and why we do it. 


You don’t take a photograph, you make it.
— Ansel Adams

We aim to teach everyone to take their cameras beyond expectations and create images that are inspired by passion.  There is a piece of you in every photograph you take.  The goal is not to guide you to take pictures, but to make images.  When you understand your camera, lighting, and the relationship between you and your subject will you be able to take your photography to new levels.

What We Strive for

  • Creativity and individuality
  • Learning and capability beyond manuals and texts
  • Environments that foster growth in photographic skill
  • Compassion for the craft
  • Responsibility to the community and fostering relationships with other photographers
