Have a DSLR, but only shoot in automatic mode? Already know how to shoot in manual, but want to take your photography to a new level? Well, I am SO excited to share that Val Westover & Stephanie Adriana are coming to Phoenix and Tucson in March with THREE awesome photography workshops in each location! I had the pleasure of taking their Capturing True Emotion Photography workshop two years ago (I can’t believe it was two years ago already)! And, I’ve been shooting in manual mode ever since! They helped me understand how my camera so much better. In fact, I even volunteered at their workshop the next time they were in Phoenix! So, I was thrilled to see that they are coming back! This year, they have a whole new class for beginners (or anyone that needs a little refresher)… Exposure Pro. This new class is taking Val & Stephanie back to their teaching roots in a small, open, hands-on environment. A setting like this will be great for really putting into practice everything you’re learning! In the Exposure Pro workshop, Val & Stephanie will teach you the basics with easy to learn, step-by-step instructions on how to take incredible images! You will learn how to shoot in Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and Manual Modes!
And, for those of you that are a little more advanced (or after you take the Exposure Pro class), they are hosting some awesome photography expeditions: Photographing Kids Expedition and the Advanced Photography Workshop at the zoo! The goal of both advanced classes is the same, but just approached a little different. Obviously, in the kids expedition, the focus is portrait photography with kids. So, if you have kiddos at home or you are a portrait photographer, that class would be really beneficial. Plus, you are encouraged to bring your kid(s) with you & you are almost certainly going to walk away with some great shots! For those of you into more artistic nature shots, then the zoo would be a great option! While I LOVE photographing the kids, I really have fun with nature shots and I LOVE bringing my camera to the zoo!
I’m SO excited for these workshops! And, I have fun news for you! First up…a MAJOR discount!! Val & Stephanie have agreed to let me share my “alumni” codes with all of you. So, you can take the Exposure Pro course for just $25!!! That is beyond a steal!
Photographing Kids Expedition
USE PROMO CODE: ctekids for a $40 SAVINGS! If you bring your kids with you, at that price, it’s cheaper than hiring a photographer for a quick photoshoot, plus you’ll be learning all kinds of great info!

Good luck! I’ll be attending the advanced workshops in Phoenix! Any questions? Feel free to email me or leave them in the comments!! 🙂
I need to finally get my camera out of manual mode so it’ll be nice to have someone there to guide and teach me!
First that you recommend them but also the chance to learn hands in.
This, would be GREAT! Thanks for the recommendation!
I was JUST telling a friend a few days ago that I’d love to take a photography workshop. I have a Nikon DSLR, but I tend to use it in automatic mode. I’d love to expand my knowledge and work towards becoming a better photographer – especially because I happen to know three great “models” who are not at all camera-shy (my little girls – ages 6, 3, and 10 months). 😉
Thanks for hosting this phenomenal giveaway. I’ll definitely help spread the word.
How fun! I am always looking to learn more about photography and working with my DSLR . Thanks!
I have a fancy camera that I have no idea how to use!
This sounds very exciting and like a great deal!! I look forward to to leaving auto mode on my camera!!
Hands on experience would be great
Still shooting in auto because I have a fear of missing the moment while fumbling with the settings in manual. I need more direction, lots of practice, and a bit of confidence!
Sounds amazing! I’d love to use more of the capabilities that I know my camera has!
Small class size
I would love to stop using only my iPhone for photos and feel more comfortable with my camera.
I would love to learn how to use my DSLR camera better!
I would love to get more comfortable with my camera and take better pictures of my daughter!
I soooo need this class!!
Learning the best way to photograph, and to capture the kids emotions better
I would ve exited to learn my camera. My hubby bought me a nice one and I’m clueless about how to use it. I love taking pics and would enjoy learning how to make them better.
I’ve been manual for a couple of years… but I don’t shoot often… I have some amazing zoo pics .. but could use more instruction!!!
I have wanted to learn how to use a DSLR so I can feel confident enough to actually buy one. Not sure if having one is a requirement for the class, though.
Yes! You’ll want to have a dslr. The only way to get confident with one is to use it. But, I guarantee you could handle it!
This is exactly what I need! I just got a new camera for Christmas, but I’m still mainly using my iPhone because I don’t know how to use my DSLR settings! lol
Thanks for the opportunity to win a great giveaway!!!
I really need some hands on time with a pro to help my photography get to the next level. This class sounds awesome!
