Learn professional photography skills in a private training bootcamp
In our photography bootcamp, you will work one-on-one with a photography mentor to learn how to get the most from your camera. With your digital camera (DSLR or mirrorless), the options are limitless. However, creating quality photos is not always as easy as it looks. Working with instructors like Josh Hardin, photo editor for Colorado Life Magazine, you will find out how to get the results you want from your camera.
