The Distillery District's European Christmas Market is a great place for beginner photographers to get familiar with all the buttons and controls on their cameras while learning to take that Instagram worthy picture of the local scene. Our hands-on classes will teach you photography basics such as how to set your camera program modes, the components of the exposure triangle, the importance of aperture and depth of field and its effect on your pictures. This is a no stress beginner photography class where we will explain photography concepts in easy to understand terms. This is an outside class so you will be taking pictures and practicing while experiencing the hustle and bustle of the Christmas Market. Our classes have a maximum of 10 participants so as to ensure everyone has an opportunity to ask questions and get the personal attention they need.
As a child I’ve always loved art and creativity. Ansel Adams and Ken Danby were my heroes. Years later producing major conferences and training events all over North America I realized people wanted to discover unique experiences in the cities they visited and capture them using their cameras. I set out to use my training skills, passion for photography and love for all things in the Toronto area to create hands-on beginner photography classes where both tourists and residents hone their photography skills while visiting the city's local iconic places.
