Mar 2, 2010Creative :: Teaching and Photography Elementary
My first education endeavor went over this past weekend with a bang!
I taught photography once upon a time at a summer girl's camp and I absolutely loved it. Despite that experience I was still SO NERVOUS about teaching a class now. The students are not kids - they are my age! They might have questions I can't answer! I might say something stupid! Ignoring my fears ... The fact is that I get countless emails from aspiring photographers wanting to learn more about their cameras. So with a little encouragement from a few of the right people I was in. I have officially embarked on providing education to people who are interested in being better photographers. It's intimidating to say the least but its wonderful!
The class Photography Elementary this past weekend went over perfectly. With the help of Sarah - my awesome office manager, Mary - my best friend who prepared delicious snackies, and Nick - my sweet boy friend who helped with anything and everything I was able to pull of this event so smoothly with no major snags. Okay, I definitely said some dumb things ... but for the most part it was a great time!

Our host for the day was the conference center at 4 Market Square ... right above the square room. It was the perfect location and they were wonderful to work with!
