Workshops held at the Desert Art Center, Palm Springs.

Beginner’s classes include 4 consecutive lessons starting with knowing your camera, using Manual Mode, learning about Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO and equivalent exposures. We learn to get to know your own camera’s knobs, buttons, dials, inputs, menus, etc. We go on to learn about lighting and getting good exposures and dynamic range. This is a hands-on class with lots of experiments and exercises to practice what you’re learning. We have a lot of fun and the students leave knowing how to use their camera to their own needs. And, it’s FUN!

Intermediate classes (starting in Fall 2019) will include more in-depth learning with practical exercises and assignments. We will dig deeper into what your camera can accomplish for your vision. Students need to know the basics and/or attending the Beginner’s Class.

Private lessons are available as well. Please contact Taylor at info (at) for more information.

The Palm Springs Photography Meetup is fun way to meet new people and join fellow photography enthusiasts on adventures throughout the Coachella Valley (and sometimes beyond). Easy to sign up and join.
