Master Your Camera Controls –   A sit down format session, 1-2  hours (max 5 students/class) – $90

The workshop will offer instruction for people who want to learn the ins and outs of their cameras, focusing only on that topic, in a small group setting.

Classes to improve your skills no matter which camera model you own!

Choose between our regularly scheduled live small group classes below, or contact us for a private one-on-one class to suit your schedule and location.



To purchase BOTH the Master Your Camera Controls and the Composition in the Field class, held back-to-back, for a package price of $150 (instead of paying $215 if purchased separately), choose the “$150 Combo” option when you register for this class below.

There’s no need to register separately for Composition in the Field – you’ll be automatically registered for both classes.

Apply what you learn in the Master class out in the field!

The exact location of each Master Your Camera Controls session rotates each month since the meeting spot is within a 5 minute walk to the Composition in the Field workshop held shortly afterwards.

We rotate our locales so that participants get a different photo experience: architecture one month, an arboretum the next, and a funky street or urban park on yet another session. The same instructor always teaches both classes. When the Master Your Camera Controls session ends, the instructor escorts those students to the Composition in the Field meeting spot.

You will receive the exact meeting location, along with the cell number and e-mail address of your instructor, the Friday night before the weekend of the workshop.



Master Your Camera Controls workshop: $90 by itself; $150 in combination with the Composition in the Field class.

(If you would like private one to one sessions, the fee is $125 per hour. Contact us at DPAbooking@DigitalPhotoAcademy or call toll free 1 877 372 2231!)

You can sign up online, but of course we are happy to answer your questions over the phone via our toll-free number, Call Digital Photo Academy at 1 877 372 2231. Lots of people seem to hang up if our welcome recording comes on instead of a live voice, but we promise to return your message within a day or two if you leave one with your name and number.  It would be even better if you included your e mail address as well as the date and city of the class you are considering.  If leaving a voice mail message is not your thing, please email us at or
