PhotoTrainer Gift Certificates

Share the Love!

PhotoTrainer Gift Certificates are a great way to support and encourage your favorite photographer, camera bug, or the general photography enthusiast in your life. At PhotoTrainer I offer gift certificates associated with every class offered. They last a year so that you have plenty of time to find a class that will work with people’s schedules. I make an earnest effort to post classes to the site three months in advance. Nevertheless, some classes are offered more often than others so check the calendar for the class of your interest.

The DSLR/M Deluxe,  Lightroom, and the Evening Jumpstart, are part of my core class lineup and occur monthly. My Compsition course happens every quarter. PhotoTrainer gift certificates are not constrained to a date, you buy them like gift cards or iTunes cards and they are valid for a full calendar year from the date of purchase. Yes, that’s right;  it is in both our interests to use these and NOT let them go out to pasture (ie: expire). (note to self~can we track this and send reminders? is is kosher?)

When you buy a gift certificate I personally create the certificate with the Giftee’s name on it and send you the PDF file in high resolution, suitable for printing on any color printer. When your giftee receives it they can consult the calendar to find when their class is offered and call me to be placed into that class.

Easy links to access your favorite class for gift certificates.

What is a DSLR and Mirrorless Note:

Digital Single Lens Reflex (or Mirrorless). I teach how to use all cameras in Manual Mode, once you know Manual Mode your camera’s functionality opens up like a lotus flower. Perhaps less flowery, and more to the point, your other creative modes A, S, and P fall neatly into place.

If your lens is interchangeable, you have a DSLR.

The MIrrorless camera is a lot of camera packed into a tiny body. Here you have an electronic viewfinder. These smaller lighter mirrorless cameras sport very dense interfaces, and they are all very different from one another. Almost everyone is intimidated by this user interface costernation.

I know this is going to sound disingenuous, but Nevertheless, IF you can come the the class knowing how to navigate around your mirrorless camera Information/Interface, as a DISTINCT and SEPARATE activity from navigating your Menus/Setup information, THEN you will get a lot more out of the class and your svelte little camera. Don't sweat the funny icons and symbols, I take care of that. I promise. ~TEU

“The DSLR Jumpstart class was perfectly utilized. Tom was very patient and even though my camera was not a classic DSLR (I have the Sony Nex 5n, mirrorless), he was prepared specifically for me with a reference sheet and explanations. Besides that I understand better how to use my camera and take better pictures for my food blog. I highly recommend this class.”
