Q: What are your office hours?

A: You will need a digital SLR or mirrorless camera – a camera with interchangeable lenses and the option of manual controls.


Q: What type of camera do I need to take a class?

A: Yes. You will need a DSLR camera for class. If you don’t own one you may want to consider buying or renting one from Showcase Photo & Video.

Q: Do I need to have my own camera to take a class?

Q: Can two people share one camera in a class?

A: Yes. However, you do need to register both people.

A: Unfortunately, due to the small size of the classrooms and strict class size we are unable to accommodate those requests.

Q: I missed my class this week. Can I come to the same class at a later time/day the same week?

A: Unfortunately, due to small class sizes we are not able to offer make up classes. Should you need to miss a class, you are welcome to ask your instructors questions about your assignment and materials covered before or after the week you miss.

Q: Can I make up a missed class?

A: We can gladly connect you with one of our instructors for one on one tutoring for your point and shoot camera. Please call us at 404.965.2205 for more info.

Q: My camera is not a digital SLR but I still want to learn how to use it. What do I do?

A: Because you want to! Because it’s fun! Because it is about time you learned how to use your camera and start taking better pictures. We hope you can join us!
