We would be hard pressed to find anyone these days who hasn’t taken a picture. Taking a photograph is one of those skills that we use every day and wish we were better at. Whether it is the uncanny knack of taking pictures of folks with their eyes closed, blurring out movement or keeping the sun in the background, we have done it all (and multiple times sadly). So for those of you who are ‘emerging’ photographers like us or just looking to polish up on your photography skills there is hope. The good folks at Best Buy are offering up some hands-on training through their Photography Workshops.
For Beginners (like us) there are FREE In-store Photography Workshops: 2 hours long sessions that will cover the photography basics & allow you 1:1 interaction with Best Buy’s Camera Experience Shop Experts to walk through your camera’s settings. The Camera Experience Shop is a specialty camera store within a local Best Buy store with a great assortment and experts to help you make the right choice. Given our great experience with Best Buy’s Geek Squad employees we would imagine a great level of support and guidance. Once you are done, you can take the next step into the upcoming Photography Workshop Tours on 7/28, 10/20 and 1/19. It is very easy to sign-up to be notified when these go live for registration in the fall/winter.
For intermediate-skilled photographers Best Buy has got you covered as well: you can sign up for one of the Photography Workshop Tours that are available in Seattle, San Diego, Houston, Atlanta, Tampa, New York City and Minneapolis on July 28th. You also have the opportunity to sign up for fall and winter sessions planned for 10/20 and 1/19. These are half-day sessions where the participants get a chance to work with pro photographers and Best Buy’s Camera Experience Shop experts, with a lunch and some giveaway goodies thrown into the mix. These sessions are not free (cost $50) though may very well be worth the expense. As mentioned earlier, it is very simple to just sign up for notifications when the sessions are open for registration.
