EDUCATION

Regardless of skill or experience level, members have opportunities to learn & keep up-to-date on equipment & techniques by advancing their photography knowledge through monthly workshops & studio help sessions. Follow the links below for more information.

Check ANNOUNCEMENTS for current available classes. 

The PCSC Education Committee is very pleased to share the 2020 Course Selection Guide. This new guide is to help you be intentional about your photography goals and class selections.

Please be sure to read this guide carefully, so you know the offerings in which you wish to enroll, before you open the click to Eventbrite.

Note the keys for the target audience of some classes (Novice, Intermediate or for All levels), recommended sequences if applicable, and the highlighted type of offering.

Many of us have more time these days to work on our craft. Consider a strategy and intentions about your fall photography studies and practice.  It might be related to a theme next year or about learning more about shooting with your new equipment. This summer many of us focused on street photography with Jim Smith's classes, going out to shoot, and feedback at Creativity.

If your plans change after registering, please contact Sue, as most classes will be full and someone else could have attended had we known you could not attend.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR JOINING A ZOOM CALL

You will receive an email from the instructor with ZOOM directions a few days ahead of a class for which you are registered. NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT SHARE THIS CLASS EMAIL AND THE LINK WITH ANYONE AS CLASS SIZES ARE LIMITED, AND ALSO TO PROTECT EVERYONE’S PRIVACY. Please sign in to a class at least 15 minutes early so the assistant can be sure you have your mic and video on and know any procedures such as sharing or asking a question that the instructor will expect of you. Then everyone will be ready when class begins.
