We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations in St Louis .

  • New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month. And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

  • Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

    Great class learned a lot. The park we used was perfect to go over certain topics!
    Its good and learned few techniques.Definetly recommended one.
    Ryne was an excellent instructor and workshop leader. He was patient, knowledgeable, and a professional in his craft. The workshop was the right amount of time for the walking involved, and doing the mindful exercises, and critiquing our images for improvement.

    Ryne gave me great ideas on how to mentally prepare myself when taking photos. Something for me to work on.
    I really enjoyed the event, at which I was the only attendee. Ryne was friendly and helpful and lent me his gloves as I had left home without mine. I learned a lot about being mindful in my photography and look forward to attending more of Ryne's events.
    It was fun and I took a away a few good tips

    I like that it was a small group. Good exercise. Slow things down. Took time to talk about the assignment.
    It was a very informative class.
    Ryan was incredibly knowledgeable about photography and did a great job of presenting the foundational basics along with technical expertise in various cameras. Was great.

    Ryne was awesome and I learned a ton about using my camera! Would highly recommend the class and look forward to taking future classes

    Title or Location: CLARK BRIDGE REFLECTION
    I captured this photo on November 1, 2022 @ 8:55 a.m. using my iPhone 13 ProMax. I was standing on the end of the boat ramp at the Alton Marina, in Alton, IL. I was looking south at the magnificent Clark Bridge as it spanned South across the Mississippi River to West Alton, MO. There was a light fog that settled on the surface of the river. The visibility was very clear closer to the shore. The water was very placid, and provided a brilliant reflection surface for the Clark Bridge and the m

    Title or Location: Sunset at the lake
    The lake is situated well below the surrounding hills and the first time I saw the color of the sunset transmitted so wonderfully upon the trees. I was actually fishing but always have a camera handy for capturing these rare gems of light.

    Title or Location: West Florissant Ave, St. Louis, MO
    On our way to explore the Bellefontaine Cemetery with my friend to capture some photos, we unintentionally arrived past closing time. Undeterred, we decided to walk along the perimeter as the sun dipped below the horizon, aiming to capture some external shots. As we strolled by the fence, we encountered a disheartening sight - the ground strewn with litter and broken glass. With caution, my friend warned me to mind my step. Expecting only hazards, I glanced down, only to be greeted by an une

    Title or Location: Cannon Beach Oregon
    While visiting Cannon Beach, Oregon for Spring Break this year, we were treated to beautiful blue skies, warm weather, stars AND airglow at night! I was absolutely giddy about seeing those stars! Now I hope you all know how extremely rare this combination is on the pacific coast in spring. It's normally overcast and raining and definitely no stars to be seen. Thank you universe for allowing your magic to flow this evening. I truly appreciate you and your powers ??

    to create this I used a piece of Teal vinyl for the backdrop, I had the camera, with a 30 mm Marco lens on a tripod set to manual focus, with focus staking of 10 shots I only used 5 in the end). for lighting I had two static lights on mini stands so I could play about with their placement to get the effect I was looking for. The dandelion seed was held in place, by putting it into a piece of white tack, I then sprayed it using a little electronic face atomiser (bought from Amazon) and loa

    This photo captures a serene moment in my front yard, where I lay on a blanket beneath a amazing tree. The weather was ideal, prompting me to grab my micro lens and focus on this exquisite dandelion.

    Title or Location: My house in Lewisville
    Decided to make a composite that resembles the photo that NASA took with their millions of dolllar photo equipment. 2 months ago I photographed the full moon and placed it on top of the most recent solar eclipse photo I took. The moon normally get its light from the sun so getting the perspective with moon visibility is impossible during an eclipse unless you have nasa gear. My photo was taken with a canon R5, RF400mm F2.8 and cropped in.
