Student Images- Tampa Photography Classes

Here are some images from the brave and talented photographers who have attended some of my classes, workshops, and safaris. Most of them were beginners shooting on automatic, some of whom never owned a camera before. And, over the course of a few short weeks, have started to learn to master the art. Pictures are posted here with the permission of the photographer. Please honor their copyright!

Free Night Photography Class 10-28-16

What a great night it was to be in downtown Tampa, see the beautiful lights, and learn about how to shoot at night. The Riverwalk is a bustling place with lots of great things to photograph. The class was about learning camera settings and long exposures and we even experimented with light painting. Great shots people!


Scott Kelby 9th annual Worldwide Photowalk 10-01-16

41 people joined me for a photowalk around Ybor city celebrating the 9th Kelby walk. This annual event drew over 24,000 walkers at 1068 walks around the world and contributed all proceeds (the walk was free) to an orphanage in Kenya! It was a great day and a great place to shoot. Photographers were challenged to do their best to tell a story about Ybor, capture motion, and shoot a cool shallow depth of field shot to compete with others on the walk. Here are some results. Thanks to everyone who came out!

Free Ybor City Safari 03-05-16 

What a great day in Ybor for this safari. Over 20 people showed up for a stroll-and-shoot in the historic district. We ended up at the Saturday morning market for pictures of produce and an impromptu portrait session with Jim,  a nice guy who volunteered himself for photographs. He sat as I demonstrated different lighting scenarios and participants got some nice images. It's the kind of magic you just can't plan.

Florida State Fair Safari 02-07-16

Another awesome night at the State Fair where photographers learned how to deal with night shots, capture motion, and enhance their knowledge of camera settings learned in Photo 101. Nice job!

Great job Fair Photogs!
