What to Photograph in your city?
With eclectic architecture, electric neighborhoods and beautiful parks, there are thousands of things to photograph in Houston. So set yourself a challenge and make the most of everything right outside your door! When was the last time you went to one of Houston's great museums, like the Museum of Fine Arts? In fact, when was the last time you explored a new neighborhood? After our classes, you will be excited to rediscover your city through the lens of your camera!
Experiment with reportage and street photography and unearth the stories the city has to tell. There are countless hidden gems throughout Houston, waiting to be found, all of which make great photography practice for pros, beginners and Instagrammers. Don't hold back, just let your creativity take over!
Even if you don't like urban photography, you have no excuse with the amazing parks in Houston. Try your hand at landscape photography next time you are hiking in Memorial Park. Not many cities can boast such stunning urban oases, but Houston can! Prefer to photograph people? Our online courses will help teach you skills to snap the perfect party pic or take memorable portraits of your friends and family. We even have an online course for the best selfie! Impress everyone with your new photography skills. Or, if you need to get a gift for your arty family members, our gift cards make the perfect present.
Our photography classes teach you everything from the correct angle to composition, and cover topics like ISO and shutter speeds. Even if you don't have a camera, we've got you covered with our smartphone photography classes.
