Covid is a global issue and varies, city by city, even day by day, here across North America, but we want you to know that you can enroll in workshops, currently posted for six months beyond the current month and updated on a monthly basis since 2006. (Founded in 2006, this format of updating new group workshop locales, times and dates have always been handled in this same manner. Should you require a private workshop, our professional photographers who lead group sessions in the community where they live, can accommodate PRIVATE WORKSHOPS on any photo topic and meet up with you and your guests on any day of the week that suits your schedule and locale selected within our active communities.) We can conform to your priorities.
As any workshop you select approaches, please know that we will adhere to the Covid social distancing directives relevant to your local community at that time, as they apply to the coronavirus, allowing you to receive a total refund or the chance to reschedule with no penalty fee no matter how long you require to make your rescheduling decisions. Please contact us toll free, 1 877 372 2231 or email us at DPABooking@DigitalPhotoAcad
IF WORKSHOP DOES RUN, MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING CONFORMS TO LOCAL DIRECTIVES
Welcome to the Dallas market for the international network of live and online photo classes, all under the banner of Digital Photo Academy.
This section is devoted to the Dallas community and the DPA Instructors who lead these workshops are professional photographers who have lived in Dallas for at least 10 years, usually longer.
These pro shooters also have teaching experience and they love teaching. (Not all photographers do.) They know the local retailers where you can get the better deals on photo equipment and more importantly, they know where the best photo ops are which allows us to provide you with a rotation of interesting places to shoot, throughout the year, whether indoors or outdoors, winter, spring, summer of fall. Sometimes one time of day to shoot is better than another and our DPA instructors keep us informed.
Often, the DPA Instructors even have private access to various locales in the city where they live. Themes vary from street photography and dynamic architecture, to flowers and landscapes, as well as waterscapes, sunsets, lush scenery and everything in between.
During one month, you might be invited to rendezvous in the luxurious natural light streaming in to a religious venue via spectacular stained glass windows and the following month, it might be a small relatively unknown park with very special landscapes. This is why we offer a special ALUMNI Discount to people who attend more than one workshop.
Nationally, we organize these workshops to provide variety for the participants in each local market, but we could not do it without the expertise and connections provided by the DPA instructors in each of those markets.
Phone the national headquarters of Digital Photo Academy at 1 877 372 2231 but know that each of the Digital Photo Academy markets includes a local office. In Dallas, that office is at:

Thanks for arranging this workshop. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Big thanks for Mr. Mike, he was great and helped me a lot in taking good photos. Looking forward to such events in the future.
The class was very good on Saturday. William helped me and the folks in attendance learn about positioning photos, the thirds rules, leading lines, etc. he did a very effective job as I am somewhat experienced and he was able to convey his message clearly to newer folks and those of us with DSLR cameras.
Nina was a wonderful teacher! She brought very useful printout reference sheets, taught me about my camera, taught me about Lightroom (which is invaluable and I would have never used it!), and advised me on lighting! I learned a lot in three hours! Thank you so much!
Thank you for this class. Marquis really enjoyed Mr. William and said that he was really funny. Marquis said he learned a lot about his camera and how to take better pictures. Thank you again.
This class was very informative and our instructor William was amazing. I purchased a camera in December and wanted an affordable, in person class to learn to take better pictures and this class was just that. I will definitely sign up for another class.
“Hi!!! It was a fun day ,thank you”
My wife and I took the Mastering Your Camera Controls and the Composition in the Field (Dallas Farmer’s Market) from William Morton
What a great and informative time!
We will be taking future composition classes in the future
Thank you for helping us get better at photography and photo composition!

“We had a good day at the park in Dallas.
William Morton was informative, patient, and courteous.
Attached are a few of my photos from the day.”
Thank you so much for an informative afternoon. Having the instant feedback to shots was very helpful. Gave me some food for thought and areas to exercise and experiment on. Also really enjoyed flipping thru the album you posted from yesterday. Seeing the very same things but thru your eyes and lens was interesting and provided several ah-ha moments. Particularly not to be afraid of shooting what otherwise seems mundane. With the right angle and light, magic happens. I need to review my pics further and cull out one or two to post. I have so much to learn!”
I’m interested in learning photography, but have no idea which digital camera to buy. Can you recommend a beginner camera that takes close ups and distant shots, but that isn’t too complicated? If I have to stop and read a manual often, I’ll miss all the action! My budget is under $300, if possible.
I want to take your farmers market class, and probably others.
Thank you foe your help, if you can.

“The class with Henry was great. He is extremely patient and was able to show me how to use my camera and take better pictures. I can’t wait to put his lessons into practice. ”
“I greatly enjoyed this class. This is actually the third class I’ve taken with Mr. Biber and I’ve learned something new every time. I’d recommend the class to anyone. I’ve attached my favorite image from Saturday. Mr. Biber is very interesting and I look forward to my next class with him.”
“First off, please let me apologize for not responding sooner for not thanking your for taking time out of your schedule to assist me. I do look forward to signing up for classes with Henry. I would also like to be able to get more comfortable with taking pictures in the manual settings. ”
“Karen and Henry provided an informative and even personalized instruction to our large class. They took the time to review, critique and guide us as individuals. As aspiring photographers, whether seeking a new profession or just enjoyment, they gave knowledge to better our craft with their amazing skills.”
“Karen was fantastic – relaxed, confident and passionate about photography and sharing her knowledge. She was willing to answer any questions we had and kept the group on track. Her introduction material and discussion were also well prepared. Karen was on-hand and eager to review our photos as we took them and this helped reinforce her teachings over the duration of the class.
The class was pitched just at the right level for me; I wanted something that moved past the intro/101 class and this helped me greatly. Very glad to see this as a DSLR class for people who have already covered the basics”
– Philip Kernohan
“I enjoyed this morning, and will think about the principles we learned when I frame my shots in the future. I actually love a lot of the pictures I took this morning!”
– Michelle Sigle
“I wanted to thank you for sharing your knowledge with us in class Saturday. It was my first class of any kind on photography or Photoshop. I really enjoyed it. I can’t wait to try out the b&w conversion method you showed me.”
