Should I sign up this class together with the Beginner 101 Workshop?

If you have no photography background, or are shooting in the Auto Mode, please take the prerequisite course, Beginner 101 Mini Workshop. Even you are already shooting in the semi-auto modes, we still encourage you to sign up for the Beginner 101 Mini Workshop to build up a solid foundation in photography.*

Do I get a discount if I sign up for the Beginner 101 and 102 together?

Yes! You can save $40 if you sign up for the Beginner 101 and 102 Workshops together. Use Discount Code "BUNDLED" when you checkout.

Can I use my own equipment?

Attendees are welcome to bring their own equipment, because it is also our goal to help them use their own equipment (if there's any) eventually.

We need everyone to start with the equipment that we provide, so the whole class can move at the same pace. At the same time, it is also easier to understand the basics with our equipment, and the settings are effortlessly transferable to other cameras once they grasp the concepts. Attendees can use their own equipment in the 2nd half of the workshop with the help of the instructor, and they will be amazed at how fast they pick up the settings.
