It was my first pho­tog­ra­phy course and first with Expo­sure Ther­a­py. It was a lot of fun…in a friend­ly, safe envi­ron­ment. Lots cov­ered and a lot of time is need­ed to put what I have learned into prac­tice. Thanks Paul.”

– Kat­ja B.

It was a great expe­ri­ence! I am even more excit­ed about the rest of the course and what I will take away from it! Thank you Paul”

– Hana R.

Paul was great. While my needs and expec­ta­tions may not have been what he was expect­ing, he quick­ly adapt­ed based on my ques­tions and pro­vid­ed me with the knowl­edge I was look­ing for and helped me select appro­pri­ate default set­tings for my cam­era. I would rec­om­mend him.”

– Nina Y.

Paul was a very knowl­edge­able teacher, he paced the class to our speed, did a great job ensur­ing that we all under­stood the con­tent, encour­aged a com­fort­able envi­ron­ment and encour­aged ques­tions. I liked how the first half was the­o­ry and the sec­ond half was out­side try­ing every­thing we had just learned. Great class and teacher. Thanks!”

– Mike S.

Paul was a fan­tas­tic teacher! He is pas­sion­ate in what he does and in teach­ing. He took the time to prop­er­ly explain every­thing and mak­ing sure every­one was on track before mov­ing onto the next les­son. HIGHLY rec­om­mend Paul as a teacher!!”

– Urszu­la S

Paul was very infor­ma­tive and could eas­i­ly explain the basics about a cam­era to the aver­age con­sumer. He made myself and my class­mates real­ly under­stand all the basic func­tions which gave us greater under­stand­ing of image results. I am real­ly look­ing for­ward to com­plet­ing the course today and shoot­ing more!”

– Amy M.

I enjoyed the class and feel I have a much bet­ter grasp on how my cam­era works.”

– Day­na M.

Paul was great! Very knowl­edge­able and helps you under­stand the tech­ni­cal jar­gon of pho­tog­ra­phy. Tru­ly enjoyed the class!”

taught by a working professional.

At Expo­sure Ther­a­py, you’ll learn pho­tog­ra­phy from a work­ing pro­fes­sion­al pho­tog­ra­ph­er, not a retired part-timer or enthu­si­as­tic hob­by­ist. 

learn to confidently troubleshoot any photographic situation.

Our pho­tog­ra­phy cours­es go beyond super­fi­cial tips and teach the fun­da­men­tal prin­ci­ples of pho­tog­ra­phy. We empow­er you to take on nov­el pho­to­graph­ic sit­u­a­tions with com­pe­tence and con­fi­dence. 

A truly camera- and brand-agnostic program.

Our lessons pro­mote max­i­miz­ing the poten­tial of the gear you already own. Whether you’re shoot­ing with a Nikon, Canon, Sony, Pana­son­ic, Olym­pus, Pen­tax, Fuji­film, Leica, or some­thing else entire­ly, our pho­tog­ra­phy cours­es strive to help you squeeze the most out of your exist­ing equip­ment. 

Small class sizes mean you’re more than a number.

Our stan­dard pho­tog­ra­phy cours­es are lim­it­ed to six par­tic­i­pants, which means more time is devot­ed to your indi­vid­ual needs, ques­tions, and learn­ing expe­ri­ence.

Photography courses where theory meets practice.

Every one of our on-loca­tion pho­tog­ra­phy cours­es starts with the­o­ry and ends with prac­ti­cal exer­cise ses­sions that demon­strate the con­cepts to rein­force your knowl­edge. Eure­ka!
