Who Takes Our Courses, Anyway??

After nearly a year of helping camera owners demystify their digital cameras, we still get a lot of questions and inquiries about our Clicks Gone Wild courses. (And we don't mind, we love talking about photography!!)  Where to begin?  I need a really expensive camera to take awesome photos, right?  What class should I take??

Gemma & Rhonda have taught a wide variety of skill levels in the past 12 months - right from true beginners who need to learn the very basics of the basics on a compact camera, through to people who are ready to control all of the settings on their dSLR in Manual Mode.  All three of our courses will certainly assist you in taking your images to a new creative level!!  So if you're hesitant to join in on the fun for any reason, send us an e-mail and ask for advice on which course would best suit you.

What we know is unique about our courses is the environment created in each of our classes and the camaraderie between us as teachers and the the small group of wonderful people.  Whether it's a public course in a library or a gathering in someone's home, we teach you face-to-face, in real time, and provide picture examples.

You can ask questions.  There are no silly questions.  You can laugh.  You can be inspired.  You are with other photography-loving people at your own skill level. Sit back, relax, meet someone new, learn a lot, keep in touch, and come back for more if you wish.  Let us teach and entertain you.

Together, we share our skills and knowledge and make it just as enjoyable as it is informative for you.

Which course should I take?

Do you just know the very basics of your camera and typically keep your camera dialed in on Auto Mode, a.k.a. "the green box"?  Rest assured that we have taught many people like you. We recommend you check out Mastering the Basics, Part 1 where we cover the basics and so much more.  Learn what all the preset modes are for and what they do to your images.  Also learn about how to focus properly to be guaranteed a few non-blurry photos.  We introduce you to the basics of composition and give ample tips on how to capture better everyday moments.

If you have a firm understanding of the basics and know how to get good focus in your images, you may want to take an intermediate course.  Learn all about proper colour, organizing your picture files, zoom, proper printing, metering modes, and more in Mastering the Basics, Part 2.

Both of our Mastering the Basics series have been designed to use with any camera - the concepts are applicable to a basic point and shoot camera to a dSLR.

Bring it all together in our most advanced course, The Magic of Manual Mode. This course is designed for dSLR owners and includes an extended in-person session and online follow-up private forum for questions and assignments.

And if you're not quite sure where you fit in, send us an e-mail or inquire about our private tutoring sessions.

Whatever stage of the game you're at, we look forward to teaching you!
