Why Membership

Photography is an art best learned via practice, practice and practice.

Since we started teaching photography, #1 request from our students were consistent:
To have more opportunities to practice with our instructors.

Our membership system is designed to provide just that:
Join our regular workshops with our instructors, get immediate feedback, become part of our community.
We also added more sweet benefits for your pleasure:)
