What are others saying about the Live Wonderful Photography Classes?

"There are lots of instructional books out there; however, some things are better learned hands-on. I believe photography is one of those things! Danielle is an awesome instructor and I thoroughly enjoyed her Beginner’s Photography Workshop! She took us back to basics, explained all the cool features and buttons on my camera and then focused (pun intended!) on the “need to know” functions. It was a great experience. Thank you!"

~ Lana Mullinax

"I LOVED Danielle’s DSLR Photography class! I took a private lesson since I feel like I am just about at the intermediate level in photography. It was so helpful to meet with her one-on-one. She has a great, positive attitude, and her passion for photography is contagious!

Danielle provided some great tips and explained the aperture in a way that finally made sense to me. She really knows how to break down the science of photography. She also provided a Photography Reference Guide after the class, which I take with me whenever I go on a shoot! I’m looking forward to a Lightroom class soon.

I would definitely recommend Danielle!"

~ Kelly Lamano

"Cannot say enough positive things about Danielle and this class. I have had a digital SLR for several years and was resigned to being intimidated by it… Danielle explained the functions of the camera and its settings so well. For the first time, I FINALLY am getting what it means to take the camera off “auto” and why and how to do that. We then took what she taught us and practiced with it outside — the only way to see if I was “getting it”. Worth every penny and then some."

FAQs Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need for this class?

All you need for this class is ANY KIND OF CAMERA! Of course, bring your creativity and your imagination too! Also, because we will be outside, I recommend wearing a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen and bring a water bottle.

Can I still take these classes if I don’t have a DSLR?

Yes! I’ve got your back. You can rent a camera from me for the day! Then I’ll help you find the best beginner camera for your budget. For the Visual Storytelling Class and Photo Tours you can bring any digital camera, including your smartphone.

Where are these photography classes hosted?

Currently, classes are held in a few different locations around Central Florida. Find us in Winter Park, around Lake Eola and Thornton Park and going on adventures all over! All class details can be found on their individual pages.

Yes, and they are so much fun! If you would like to host a private group class or party, please send me an email. I am always open to speak, teach, and demonstrate for corporate events, parties, and educational programs.

How much photography experience do I need to take these classes?

None! No experience is required. Just a camera and a willingness to learn how to tap into your creative side. I will help you every step of the way. So even if you’ve never turned it on, or your camera has always been on auto, you can join these classes. Actually, your creativity depends on it!
