Hi everyone! Last weekend was my first chance to teach my Photo 101 class. It was so so much fun, the students were blast, it was more like just hanging out and chatting for an afternoon 🙂 Here is what one of the students had to say…
“I had a great time at this class! I learned a lot about my camera and what makes a good picture. I’ve wanted to understand how to use my camera on all manual settings, and now, I can! It’s a great way to learn photography in a hands-on way instead of through a manual! The structure of the class was also very enjoyable, relaxed, and fun. ”

Here is a BIG announcement, because of the emails I have received asking me to teach the class again, I decided I would. I have found a new place to teach them as well, Images by Jami is partnering with Four Chairs Furniture in Lindon Utah, this is where all the classes will be held.(Visit the Four Chairs website, watch Lindy’s video – that designer room in her video is where are classes will be held-how cute is that room?) Each class will be limited to 10 students, so I can give lots of hands on instruction. I am also teaching a Photoshop Elements Class and a Photo 102 class in March. You can purchase all three classes and save $40! Wow!
Here are the details
