You are busy all the school year and you get only a few short months in the summer. PhotoTrainer loves teachers, and has a special discounted class dates during your summer months off. Yes, these are Fridays and you do need to come to one of these dates.

As we have all seen, the smartphone has revolutionized communication and this is especially true for young people.

If you own a DSLR camera, you can use it and photography to enhance your teaching dramatically. The DSLR is more than a camera, it is a Musical  Instrument for Light and exquisite tool for creative communication. Not only will I show you how to own and operate this camera, I will also teach you how to make it sing.  Sign up for this class and be ready to tell us on the day of class where you teach and whom you teach, you will be in good company!

Here’s a great idea…

Give this class as a gift! Just contact me and I’ll arrange it. What a nice person you are!”

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.”
