Education at The Center
Workshops and Classes | The Center for Fine Art Photography offers a range of workshops for the novice photographer to the advanced professional. Each workshop is presented by a photographer who has extensive knowledge and skills in the subject he or she presents. All classes are limited to a certain number of attendees to maximize your learning experience.
A review of the Speedlight class with Tom Bol | I just wanted to send a note to tell you how much I enjoyed the workshop on Sunday Feb 17th, with Tom Bol. Tom is so entertaining, welcoming, has such a wealth of knowledge and is great teacher. I drove down from Montana, 500 miles, and would do it again ! Tom made everyone feel comfortable, including the young model. Tom’s wife Cree was also a joy and helpful to have join us for a time. Your staff member Chris was great too. I’m looking forward to future workshops.
