NW Photo School offers 3 hour and full-day photo workshops for passionate photographers who want to improve their picture taking skills. Our instructors are working professional photographers who provide hands-on learning in small groups in a variety of interesting field locations.

We have workshops to accommodate virtually all experience levels, from the weekend hobbyist with a point & shoot camera, to the more experienced DSLR photographer with a bag full of lenses.  Participants learn effective composition, proper camera settings, creative portraiture, basic lighting and much more.  They discover the keys to producing more powerful images and developing their own personal vision.

Recognizing the importance of keeping workshops adaptable to participants' particular interests and skill levels, we provide the best possible experience for an affordable price. Take a look at our up coming workshops ( and stay tuned for our future offerings! ) to pick the right one for you.
